The college roundup …
CHARLESTON, S.C. ó Clemson went on the road for the first time this season Wednesday, but it felt like a home game as the Tigers routed The Citadel 73-50 before a crowd of about 5,200 at McAllister Field House, about half of whom were wearing Clemson orange.
Devin Booker scored 14 points and Tanner Smith added 11 in the win, the 14th straight for Clemson (2-0) over the state military college.
PITTSBURGH ó Casper Ware scored a career-high 28 points and visiting Long Beach State ran away from No. 9 Pittsburgh 86-76 on Wednesday night.
James Ennis added 19 points for the 49ers (2-0), who snapped Pitt’s 58-game nonconference winning streak at the Petersen Events Center with ease.
Ashton Gibbs led the Panthers (2-1) with 20 points and Nasir Robinson added 19, but the Panthers simply couldn’t keep up with the 49ers.
Long Beach State built a nine-point halftime lead and never let up. It was Long Beach State’s first victory over a top-10 team since 1993.

Florida State has won six straight games against teams from Florida: a sweep of Jacksonville, Central Florida and Stetson this season as well as victories over Miami (twice) and Stetson.
CHAPEL HILL ó North Carolina continued its dominance against its early-season schedule Wednesday night, and once again there was plenty of credit to go around.
