CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) — Terrence Oglesby had four 3-pointers and Clemson (No. 23 ESPN/USA Today, No. 24 AP) beat North Carolina State 70-54 on Tuesday night.

Oglesby hit three 3-pointers in double overtime to save the Tigers (14-3, 2-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) last Saturday night in a 97-85 victory over Florida State. This time, the freshman’s long-range touch began a run of six consecutive first-half 3s for Clemson that broke things open.

Oglesby, Cliff Hammonds and K.C. Rivers each had two baskets in the surge, which turned a three-point game into a 32-21 lead the Tigers would not give up.

Hammonds led Clemson with 14 points, while Trevor Booker had 13 and Oglesby 12.

Freshman J.J. Hickson, the Wolfpack’s top scorer at better than 16 points a game, was held to four points. North Carolina State(11-5,0-2) had a season-high 23 turnovers.

Courtney Fells had four 3-pointers and led the Wolfpack with 19 points.
