      Clemson downs SC State 65-49


      CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) -- Devin Coleman made the most of his first career start Tuesday night, scoring a career-high 16 points, as Clemson overcame early sluggishness for a 65-49 win over South Carolina State Tuesday evening.


      Clemson improved to 7-1, while South Carolina State fell to 2-6. Landry Nnoko had his second career double-double for the Tigers with 13 points and 13 rebounds.


      Devin Joint paced the Bulldogs with 9 points and 7 rebounds.


      Clemson fought through some early offensive struggles to take a 34-31 halftime lead on guard Rod Hall's 3-point play with 44 seconds left. The Tigers trailed 20-11 with 8:39 to play.


      But they finished the half on a 23-11 run, with nine points coming from Coleman.


      Clemson started the second half on a 13-6 run to push the lead to double figures and kept it there the rest of the way.
