CLEMSON – With Kendall Spray scoring 18 points and Delicia Washington grabbing 10 rebounds, Clemson overpowered Presbyterian, 92-47, on Friday evening.
Sophomore transfer Nyah Willis led the Blue Hose with 14 points in her debut. Jade Compton scored the season’s first points, but PC never led again as the Tigers answered with the next 9 points.
Clemson (2-0) led 25-12 after the first quarter and stretched it to 49-22 at halftime.
Willis was the only PC player to reach double figures. The transfer from Chabot College added 6 rebounds, which tied Compton for the team lead, and had two of Presbyterian’s three blocks. Tionna Carter chipped in eight points for PC.
All of Spray’s points were a result of 3-pointers; she connected 6 of 11. Fourteen players – led by Spray, Gabby Elliott with 13 points and Aman Robinson with 12 -- scored for the Tigers.
PC attempted nearly as many shots as Clemson but hit only 26 percent of them, half as high as the Tigers. The Blue Hose went 1-for-28 behind the 3-point stripe.
In her collegiate debut, PC’s Maleia Bracone had 6 points in 29 minutes off the Presbyterian bench. The Anderson native also nabbed a game-high 4 steals.
The Blue Hose are back on the road on Tuesday, Dec. 1, as they visit Furman. Tip is scheduled for 7 p.m.
