Box Score

CLEMSON, S.C. (Jan. 31) – Freshman Chrissy Floyd scored a game-high 22 points and senior Angie Cossey added 13 to lead Clemson to a 72-43 Atlantic Coast Conference women’s basketball win Monday night at Littlejohn Coliseum.

Floyd finished 9-of-14 from the floor and Cossey had three 3-pointers as the Tigers (14-7, 5-4 ACC) avenged an early season loss to the Yellow Jackets (11-8, 4-5 ACC). Georgia Tech won the first meeting between the two schools, 81-62, on Dec. 4 in Atlanta.

Clemson led by 15 at halftime and broke the game open with a 16-3 run in the first 7:37 of the second half to go up 49-21. Tech’s only points during the Tiger run came on a 3-pointer from freshman Amy Lingenfelder, who finished with a career-high 19 points.

The Tigers held the Jackets to a season-low 43 points, which was the fewest by a Tech team since scoring 41 in last season’s 69-41 loss to the Tigers in Clemson. The Tigers shot 46.9 percent (30-of-64) from the floor, while the Jackets shot just 32.1 percent (17-of-53) for the game.

Lingenfelder was the only Tech player to finish in double figures. Tech junior Regina Tate led all rebounders with a season-high 13.

The Jackets fell behind early in the game as the Tigers built a 12-point lead with 8:29 left in the first half. Tech cut the Tiger advantage to seven with 4:53 to go before halftime, but Clemson closed the half on a 10-2 run to go up 33-18 at the intermission.

The Jackets return to action Thursday hosting Virginia in a 7 p.m. game at Alexander Memorial Coliseum at McDonald’s Center.
