Saturday, January 3, 2009. (AP) -- K.C. Rivers had 18 points and reserve Jerai Grant added 14, and No. 20 Clemson improved to 14-0 for the second time in three seasons with a 79-66 victory over East Carolina on Saturday.
The Tigers (14-0) moved a step closer to the school's best-ever start, set by the 1986-87 team and equaled two years ago.
Grant's uncle, Horace, was part of Clemson's record start 22 years ago. James Legan had 21 points, including five 3-pointers, to lead East Carolina.
The Tigers saw a 16-point lead cut to five right before the half. But Clemson took control with a 17-4 run in the second half to go up 68-48.
