    COLUMBIA, S.C. -- Lele Hardy had 17 points and nine rebounds to help Clemson spoil the home coaching debut of South Carolina's Dawn Staley with a 52-45 victory on Wednesday night.

    Hardy also had seven steals to give the Lady Tigers (2-1) their first victory over rival South Carolina (0-2) in four seasons.

    April Parker and Whitney Hood had 10 points apiece for Clemson.

    The Lady Tigers opened a 27-10 lead in the first half and then held off South Carolina the rest of the way.

    Lauren Falohun had 10 points and was the Gamecocks' only double-digit scorer.

    Staley took over in May and lost her opening game at Penn State this past Sunday.
