Clemson cruises past Delaware State 58-37

CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) -- Clemson never trailed in cruising past Delaware State, 58-37, in non-conference action Wednesday night.

The Tigers used a balanced attack led by Damarcus Harrison, who led all scorers with 15 points. Junior swingman K.J. McDaniels contributed 11 points.

Clemson improved to 2-0, while Delaware State fell to 1-2. The Tigers host in-state rival South Carolina on Sunday, while the Hornets travel to George Washington on Tuesday.

Delaware State lost to its second ACC foe in three nights after falling at Georgia Tech Monday, and the outcome was never really in doubt. Clemson took control with a 17-6 first-half run and led 22-10 with 6:49 left, taking a 32-23 lead into the break.

Any lingering hopes of an upset were eliminated by a 16-6 Clemson run, beginning with 16:06 left, that covered nine minutes of game action. Delaware State shot just 16.7 percent after halftime and 26.7 percent for the game.
