College Basketball Roundup

Associated Press
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.
TOP 25
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.
NO. 14 WISCONSIN 68, COLGATE 41
MADISON, Wis. (AP) ó Reserve Ben Brust scored a career-high 17 points to lead Wisconsin to the victory.
Brust, a sophomore guard, scored 13 points in the first half, including four 3-pointers. The Badgers (2-0) were 8 of 14 from beyond the arc as they built a 42-20 halftime lead.
NO. 25 FLORIDA STATE 79, STETSON 66
TALLAHASSEE, Fla.ó Okaro White scored 12 of his 18 points in the second half, pushing Florida State to another victory against a Florida school.
Deividas Dulkys added 16 points for the Seminoles (3-0), who shot 57.1 percent (32 for 56) from the field. Bernard James had 15 points and 11 rebounds.
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.
WOMEN
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.
Freshman guard Brittany Rountree had 14 points while Laura Broomfield added her third double-double in as many games with 11 points and 14 rebounds, leading the No. 19 Tar Heels to a 91-35 romp over UNC Greensboro.
