College Basketball Roundup: Clemson bounces back to beat Terps

Associated Press
The college basketball roundup …
CLEMSON, S.C ó Trevor Booker had 11 points and 14 rebounds to lead No. 13 Clemson to a 93-64 victory over Maryland on Tuesday night.
The Tigers (21-4, 7-4 ACC) bounced back from a puzzling loss to Virginia two days earlier with their second conference win of 27 points or more this season. In their previous 55 ACC seasons, the Tigers have beaten a league team by that many points just eight times.
Terrence Oglesby led Clemson with 16 points and Demontez Stitt added 15. Six Tigers scored in double figures.
Landon Milbourne scored 13 points and Greivis Vasquez added 12 for the Terrapins (16-9, 5-6), who could be on their way to missing the NCAA tournament for the fourth time in five years.
Clemson never trailed after the first 6 minutes of the game, and went on a 43-17 run that started from the last minute of the first half. With the Tigers up two, Oglesby made two free throws and K.C. Rivers had a steal and a dunk with 2 seconds left to put them ahead 34-28 at halftime.
The run continued into the second half with Clemson hitting five 3s, Booker and Jeral Grant trading thunderous dunks and the Tigers scoring on 11 of 12 possessions at one point. Oglesby’s layup with 9:30 to go ended a run of Clemson scoring on six straight possessions and the Tigers took a 73-45 lead.
No. 19 Purdue 72, No. 6 Michigan State 54
WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. ó JaJuan Johnson scored 17 points to lead No. 19 Purdue over No. 6 Michigan State 72-54 on Tuesday night and move the Boilermakers within one game of the Spartans in the Big Ten standings.
No. 10 Marquette 79, Seton Hall 67
MILWAUKEE ó Wesley Matthews scored 24 points and Marquette opened the second half with a decisive 16-3 run.
