Clemson 87, North Carolina A&T 63

Clemson's balanced scoring with its five starters in double figures, led by Donte Grantham's 17 points, and hot shooting were key in an 87-63 win over visiting North Carolina A&T in a nonconference game Sunday.

DeVoe had 11 points on 4-of-5 shooting and Grantham had nine points and seven rebounds by halftime. DeVoe finished with 10 rebounds and Grantham had a game-high 12. Thomas added nine.

Clemson, which led 41-29 at halftime, pulled away at the start of the second half by going on a 12-3 run.
