TUSCALOOSA, Ala. - The 19th-ranked Clemson Tigers resumed their domination of the Southeastern Conference, handing Alabama its worst home loss in seven years in the process.

Trevor Booker and James Mays scored 18 points each inside and Terrence Oglesby added 17 to lift the hot-shooting Tigers (12-1) to an 87-61 win over the Crimson Tide on Tuesday night.

It was the worst loss at Coleman Coliseum since a 93-60 defeat to LSU in 2000 for the Tide (10-4). Alabama had won six straight games.

The Tigers have won seven of their last eight games against SEC teams, the only loss coming to No. 18 Mississippi on Dec. 22.

They took control of this one midway through the second half, setting up uncontested shots and denying any such chances for the Tide.

Leading by only five points at halftime, Clemson built the lead to 20 with a 17-4 run that included two easy baskets off stolen inbounds passes. Alabama cut it to five points but couldn't come any closer.

The Tigers led by as many as 31 points.
