    GREENVILLE, N.C. -- Trevor Booker had 13 points, 12 rebounds and nine assists to help Clemson (No. 24 ESPN/USA Today) beat East Carolina 80-63 on Wednesday night.

    Andre Young scored 16 points to lead the Tigers (9-2), who trailed for all of 25 seconds in the first half before beating the Pirates by double figures for the third straight season. Clemson shot 46 percent and knocked down plenty of 3-point shots, building a 10-point lead in the first 5 minutes on the way to a 17-point halftime margin.

    The Pirates (4-6) never seriously threatened a comeback and fell to 1-62 all-time against Atlantic Coast Conference schools. Darrius Morrow scored 16 points to lead East Carolina, which got no closer than 15 points in the opening minutes of the second half.
