Recap


Clemson 64, South Carolina 55: K.J. McDaniels collected 16 points, seven rebounds and five blocks and Devin Booker added 13 points, eight rebounds and three steals as the visiting Tigers snapped a two-game losing streak against their bitter in-state rivals. 

Rod Hall chipped in 15 points and four assists for the Tigers (5-2), who were without senior forward Milton Jennings (suspension) for the second consecutive game. 

Brenton Williams, who left Thursday's loss at St. John's on a stretcher after suffering a neck injury, led South Carolina (5-3) with 16 points. Bruce Ellington added 12 points in his second game since rejoining the team following the football team's regular season, but also committed five of the Gamecocks' 19 turnovers.
