COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - K.J. McDaniels had 16 points, Rod Hall had 15 and and Clemson took control with a 21-6 run in the second half to defeat rival South Carolina 64-55 Sunday.

The Tigers (5-2) had lost the past two in the series and had squandered a 12-point lead to trail 31-28 early in the second half. That's when McDaniels and Devin Booker got going for Clemson.

McDaniels had four foul shots and a 3-point play while Booker added eight points in the game-breaking run. When Booker hit a pair of free throws with 9:08 to play, Clemson was on top 49-37.

South Carolina (5-3) closed to 51-47 on Bruce Ellington's basket. But Damarcus Harrison made a 3-pointer to restore Clemson's edge.

Booker ended with 13 points and eight rebounds. McDaniels had seven boards and 5 of Clemson's eight blocked shots.

Brenton Williams led South Carolina with 16 points.
