CLEMSON, S.C. ó Trevor Booker scored 25 points and grabbed nine rebounds to lead undefeated Clemson to a 79-58 victory over Presbyterian on Friday night.
Terrence Oglesby contributed 12 points, Jerai Grant had 11 and Raymond Sykes added 10 for the Tigers (7-0).
Al’Lonzo Coleman led Presbyterian (1-4) with 18 points. Bryan Bostic added 17 and Dominic King had 11 for the Blue Hose.
Clemson held double-digit leads for all but a few seconds of the second half, and led by as much as 73-49 on K.C. Rivers’ tip with 5:29 left.
Dominating the lane, Booker made 11 of 16 shots.
The Tigers shot 53.4 (31 of 58) percent from the field and held a 38-25 rebounding edge. The Blue Hose, playing their second season in Division I, shot 46.9 (23 of 49) percent.
The Blue Hose used a 14-5 run late in the half to pull within 36-32.
Syracuse 73, Virginia 70.SYRACUSE, N.Y. ó Jonny Flynn and Andy Rautins each scored 15 points, Rick Jackson came off the bench to key a late rally, and Syracuse beat Virginia 73-70 on Friday night.
Syracuse (6-0) ó fresh from winning the CBE Classic championship in Kansas City, Mo., by beating No. 17 Florida and No. 22 Kansas on consecutive nights ó overcame a 13-point deficit for the second straight game.
Paul Harris and Arinze Onuaku combined for 49 of the Orange’s 77 rebounds in the wins over Florida and Kansas and also contributed 32 points apiece. Against Virginia (3-2), Onuaku was held scoreless in the first half and went to the bench with his fourth foul at 12:02 of the second, after scoring only six points and with the Orange down by eight.
As soon as Jackson replaced Onuaku, Syracuse took off. First Eric Devendorf, then Rautins fed Jackson for resounding two-handed slam dunks to move Syracuse within 52-47 at 10:18.
Flynn followed with a reverse layup and, after both Sylven Landesberg and Sammy Zeglinski, the Cavaliers’ leading scorers, picked up their fourth fouls, Rautins hit a pair of 3-pointers to put Syracuse up 58-56 at 7:54.
