Booker helps Tigers bounce back from loss to Blue Devils

CLEMSON, S.C. -- Trevor Booker scored 19 points and Clemson (No. 21 ESPN/USA Today) bounced back from a loss at Duke to win its first Atlantic Coast Conference game this season, 72-56, over Boston College on Saturday.

The Tigers (13-3, 1-1) played an awful game at Cameron Indoor Stadium last Sunday night, netting just 12 points at halftime and falling from the rankings after a 74-53 defeat.

Clemson discovered its shooting touch -- the Tigers hit nearly 60 percent of their shots in the opening half -- to win its fourth straight against the Eagles (10-6, 1-1), who have lost two of their past three.

Joe Trapani led Boston College with 13 points.
