CLEMSON -- Chris Hobbs scored 13 points and Ray Henderson tallied 10 as Clemson
claimed an 83-54 victory against Coastal Carolina Friday at
Littlejohn Coliseum.


The Tigers improved to 5-1 on the year as 13 of the 14 Tigers who
played in the game scored at least two points. Edward Scott, Chey
Christie and Jemere Hendrix each scored nine points apiece. Clemson
shot 48.3 from the field and held the Chanticleers to 35.7 percent
shooting. The Tigers also forced 24 turnovers, the most by Clemson
since forcing 26 against Western Carolina on Nov. 19, 1998. Clemson got to the line for 32 free throw attempts and made 24 of
them for 75.0 percent. Coastal Carolina was just 8-14. Through the
first six games this season, Clemson has made more free throws (109)
than its opponents have taken (106). The Tigers have never finished a
season with more makes from the charity stripe than their opponents
have had attempts.


Clemson out-rebounded Coastal Carolina 40-32, but the Chants had the
game's top rebounder as Anthony Susnjara grabbed eight. In all six
games this season, the Tigers have equaled or bettered their
opponents rebound total and are averaging 11.0 more rebounds per game
than their opponents. Henderson was Clemson's top rebounder with
seven, but at least five Tigers had five boards.


After trailing at the half in the its last three games, including the
last two by double-digit totals, Clemson sprinted to a 44-17 halftime
lead on 53.3 percent field goal shooting while holding the Chants to
just 26.7 percent from the floor.


After the Tigers increased their lead to 30 with 17:16 left to play,
the Chanticleers put together a 10-0 run. But Coastal Carolina could
get no closer than 20 points the rest of the way.


Coastal Carolina, which fell to 1-3 on the year, was led by Brandon
Newby with 13 points and Derrick Robinson with 12.


Clemson improved its all-time record against Coastal Carolina to 4-0.
