Devin Booker had 13 points and seven rebounds as Clemson overwhelmed Alabama State with its size and halfcourt defense Monday night, strolling to a 70-45 win.
Milton Jennings added 12 points off the bench for Clemson (6-4), which shot 50 percent for the second straight game, this time making 24 of 48.
Kenderek Washington scored 10 points for Alabama State (2-8), which tried a 2-3 zone to try to compensate for using no one taller than 6-foot-6.
But the Hornets shot just 32.7 percent (17 of 52) against Clemson's man-to-man defense and committed 16 turnovers.
The Tigers went on a 9-0 run after the game was tied 3-3 after 4 minutes. Alabama State made just one of its first 14 field-goal tries and committed five turnovers in that span. Still, the Tigers' lead didn't reach double digits until two Booker free throws made it 29-19 with 4:15 remaining until halftime.
