GREENVILLE (AP) -- Freshman Terrence Oglesby hit six 3-pointers and scored a season-high 22 points to push No. 18 Clemson beat East Carolina 82-67. Fellow rookie Demontez Stitt had 13 points and five assists for the Tigers (8-0). Clemson took control midway through the first half Wednesday and never looked back. Sam Hinnant scored 16 points to lead the Pirates (3-5). East Carolina led by three early before Clemson's defense locked down to fuel a 17-point spurt and help the Tigers build a big halftime lead.
