Sunday, November 16, 2008. (AP) -- Terrence Oglesby's 16 points and a strong defensive effort helped Clemson defeat Temple 76-72 Sunday to win the Charleston Classic.

Clemson (3-0) led by as many as 14 points in the second half, but the Owls rallied to cut the lead to two with 38 seconds to play. The Tigers made just enough free throws down the stretch to hang on.

The Tigers held Temple (2-1) to 31.4 percent shooting in the second half and 45 percent for the game (27 of 60). Temples leading scorer, guard Dionte Christmas, scored 14 points against the Tigers after scoring 26 points in each of the Owls first two games in the tournament.

Ryan Brooks led Temple on Sunday with 19 points.

Clemson held a 45-39 halftime lead after shooting 64 percent from the field, including 9-for-17 (52.9 percent) from 3-point range.
