With 6:56 to go in the half Tanner Smith hit a jumper to put the Tigers up 22-12.  Clemson outscored the Citadel 17-9 the rest of the way in the first half to build a 39-21 lead.

Bryan Narcisse dunked with 11:19 to go to stretch the lead to 55-26.  The Tigers bench played significant minutes for the first  time this season.  T.J. Sapp and Rod Hall each poored in seven points for the Tigers.
