Clemson continued their trek through non-conference play Monday night against Bryant University from the Northeast Conference. In the end, the Tigers pulled away to a 93-70 victory over the Bulldogs delivering coach Brad Brownell a win on his birthday.
PJ Hall (Dorman HS) opened the game by scoring eight of Clemson’s first 12 points, staking the Tigers to an early five-point lead. Bryant pulled ahead 31-30 with just under seven minutes left in the opening frame, but a Hunter Tyson triple provided a spark for Clemson, as they outscored the Bulldogs 24-10 over the last 6:38 of the first half.
Five Clemson players finished in double figures, led by Hunter Tyson with 20 points. Nick Honor tallied 16 points, followed by PJ Hall (14), Al-Amir Dawes (11) and David Collins (10). Honor also set a career-high with seven assists.
Clemson (3-0) will now turn their attention towards the 2021 Shriner’s Children Charleston Classic, a three-game, four-day tournament at TD Arena in Charleston, SC. The Tigers will open the tournament against Temple on Thursday at 4 PM.
