In the first half, I checked the score — the Tigers were up 4. Then Ole Miss scored real quick and the Tigers turned it over. I turned the channel. Several minutes later I checked again and the team was down and I was pretty damn sure the season had about 23 minutes left, in accordance with prophecy. Then sometime after the half, I checked back in, and much to my amazement Clemson was up by almost 20. What’s more, they held on to that lead and went on to win 89-68.
I’ll mark this one down as a pretty solid win. Booker was impressive, scoring a career high 21 points. And the team is now 23-10.
Next up for the Tigers is a game against #2 seeded Syracuse, “in the most Orange of tournament quarterfinals on Wednesday night.” Indeed.
