Clemson continues to be the biggest surprise in the ACC this season in men’s basketball. The Tigers cruised past Georgia Tech, 72-51, at home on Tuesday (Jan. 24), and they remain in first place in the standings at 9-1 (17-4 overall). With 10 games left, they already have more league wins than last year’s 8-12 team.
Four Clemson players scored in double figures on Tuesday, including fifth-year forward Hunter Tyson, who scored 12 points on 4-of-8 shooting. Tyson, a graduate of Piedmont High in Unionville, also pulled down a team-high eight rebounds. Tyson was limited to 27 minutes of playing time due to foul trouble in the first half.
