Stitt, Booker Push 24th-Ranked Tigers Past UNC

CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) -- Trevor Booker scored 21 points, Demontez Stitt added 20 and No. 24 Clemson broke a 10-game losing streak to No. 12 North Carolina with a 83-64 victory Wednesday night.

The Tigers (14-3, 2-1 ACC) hadn't beaten the Tar Heels (12-5, 1-1) in nearly six years, but used a first-half blitz to lead by 23 points and held on against one of their toughest Atlantic Coast Conference opponents.

Stitt hit Clemson's first two baskets during and Booker had a three-point play to close a 17-6 opening run less than five minutes in.

It was the Tar Heels' fifth loss in six games away from the Smith Center.

It was North Carolina's most lopsided ACC loss since falling 96-56 to Maryland on Feb. 22, 2003. Dexter Strickland led the Tar Heels with 17 points.
