November 21, 2022

CLEMSON, S.C. — Clemson University men’s basketball cruised to a 72-41 victory over Loyola Maryland on Monday.

The Tigers (4-1) allowed 50 points or less for the first time this season and the 56th time during Head Coach Brad Brownell’s tenure at Clemson. The Tigers are now 54-2 in games they hold their opponent to less than 50 points.

The Tigers’ offense was led by graduate Hunter Tyson (Monroe, N.C./Piedmont) who recorded 14 points to go along with a team-high nine rebounds. Senior Alex Hemenway (Newburgh, Indiana/Castle) was perfect from the floor connecting on all five of his field goal attempts including three three-point baskets. Junior Chase Hunter (Atlanta, Ga./Westlake) scored 10 points and has now scored in double figures in all five games this year.

Freshman RJ Godfrey (Suwanee, Ga./North Gwinnett) recorded his first career points and finished with seven to go along with two rebounds, one assist and one steal. 

The Clemson defense was dominant tonight as the Tigers held Loyola Maryland to 14 points in the first half, which was tied for the second-fewest points allowed in a first half in the Brownell Era. Clemson held the Greyhounds to 28.8 percent shooting from the field and forced 18 turnovers.

The Tigers travel to Florida for the 2022 Emerald Coast Classic and are slated to play Iowa on Friday at 7 p.m. on CBS Sports Network.
