CLEMSON, S.C. -- Marcquise Reed poured in a career-high 25 points, 18 of them coming in the second half, to help lead Clemson (10-1) to a 64-48 victory over in-state rival South Carolina (8-3) Tuesday night at Littlejohn Coliseum.

The game was back-and-forth for much of the first half, but the Tigers pushed in front thanks to four Reed 3s midway in the second half. The Gamecocks were unable to find their rhythm offensively, shooting just 35 percent (19-of-54) from the field.

Chris Silva led Carolina with 12 points and nine rebounds. Wesley Myers, who played a season-high 31 minutes, scored 10 points off the bench.

Gabe DeVoe (12) and Shelton Mitchell (10) each scored in double figures off the bench for Clemson, who never trailed in the contest.

KEY STAT

South Carolina made just two 3-point field goals vs. Clemson, a season low in the category. Clemson hit 8-of-20 attempts from beyond the arc, including five made 3s in the second half.

NOTABLE

  • Junior forward Chris Silva led South Carolina in scoring with 12 points in Tuesday's matchup at Clemson. It marked his ninth double-figure scoring game of the season and the sixth time he has led or shared the team lead in scoring.

  • Graduate transfer guard Wesley Myers tallied 10 points vs. the Tigers. He connected on 4-of-7 attempts from the floor. It marked his second double-figure scoring performance of the season and the 25th of his career.
  • Silva pulled down a game-high nine rebounds vs. Clemson, marking the ninth time this season he has led or shared the team lead in the category.

UP NEXT

Following the matchup with Limestone, South Carolina begins SEC action when it travels to Ole Miss on Dec. 31. That contest will tip at 6 p.m. ET on ESPN2.
