TUESDAY NIGHT HOOPS

No. 13 CLEMSON 93, MARYLAND 64 – Trevor Booker had 11 points and 14 rebounds to lead No. 13 Clemson to victory over Maryland Tuesday night.

The Tigers (21-4, 7-4 ACC) bounced back from a puzzling loss to Virginia two days earlier with their second conference win of 27 points or more this season. In their previous 55 ACC seasons, the Tigers have beaten a league team by that many points just eight times.

After leading just 36-33 early in the second half, Clemson finished the game outscoring Maryland 57-31 to earn its 19th win in its last 21 home games.

Terrence Oglesby led Clemson with 16 points and Demontez Stitt added 15. Six Tigers scored in double figures.

Landon Milbourne scored 13 points and Greivis Vasquez added 12 for the Terrapins (16-9, 5-6), who could be on their way to missing the NCAA tournament for the fourth time in five years.
