(10). Nevada was led by Tyron Criswell and D.J. Fenner with 11 points apiece.

The opening 20 minutes were Clemson’s best of the young season. Trailing 11-10, the Tigers rattled off a 16-0 run that took less than four minutes off the clock. Clemson went on to a 39-24 lead at halftime after a 56 percent shooting clip. Nnoko had nine of his 10 in the opening frame.

Nevada went to a zone most of the second half and the Tigers struggled to adjust, making just five of 17 shot attempts to go along with 10 turnovers. Clemson finished with just seven assists and 14 turnovers. But with Clemson’s once 20-point advantage whittled down to eight, the Tigers held the Wolf Pack without a field goal for nearly five minutes until Criswell’s long ball with 17 ticks left.
