Not much to report here as only three teams were in action yesterday. BC continued their slide and Clemson won their 27th straight meeting over Furman. And of course we all know the Wake results.
So let's run down yesterday's games...Wake Forest 90, Elon 50
I don't throw this phrase out often, but Wake dominated. Everyone contributed, including Gary Clark (6-6), Ty Walker (4 points, 6 rebounds, 1 block and a couple good outlet passes). LD had a good game with 10 points and 5 rebounds and the freshmen dazzled again. Ari Stewart dropped 16 on 6-10 shooting and C.J. Harris had nine, four and four. I'll be discussing this later in the week, but Mount Ari is making his case to be inserted in the starting lineup. And I'll give my reasons then. Wake takes on UNC-W on Wednesday.
Clemson 82, Furman 53
Trevor Booker went 12-15 with 25 points and 14 rebounds (Babe!) and Demontez Stitt tossed in 9 points and 6 assists as Clemson ran away with this thing. The Tigers shot 53.8% and held Furman to 29%, forcing 26 points with 15 steals. When Clemson gets their swarming defense going, it is really hard to beat. Colin Reddick led Furman with 11 points and 12 rebounds.
Rhode Island 80, BC 69
BC's slide continues. After losing to Harvard, Boston College shot just 17.6% from beyond the arc, while URI shot 50% from distance. Corey Raji had a double-double and Biko Paris had 10 points, 3 rebounds and 7 assists in the loss. BC now has 4 losses on the year and lost Tyler Roche in the game. URI was led by Keith Coleman's 19 points.
