Clemson got up early this morning and then got up early on Liberty as the Tigers crushed the Flames 79-39 in Lynchburg, VA. The game tipped shortly after 10:00 AM as part of ESPN’s college basketball marathan and was played before a raucous sellout crowd at the Vine Center. The Tigers, behind the hot hand of David Potter, jumped to a 17–1 lead. Potter hit four straight three pointers to spark the early run. The Tigers led 42-19 at the half and cruised home from there to their second win in as many games. Clemson will play at UNC Greensboro Friday night.
