Sunday, January 25, 2009. (AP) -- Terrence Oglesby hit five 3-pointers and scored 18 points, Trevor Booker had 11 points and 11 rebounds and No. 10 Clemson broke a two-game losing streak with a 73-59 victory over Georgia Tech on Sunday night.

The Tigers (17-2, 3-2 Atlantic Coast Conference) opened the season 16-0. But after losing a top-10 showdown to Wake Forest eight days ago, the Tigers were thumped by North Carolina -- running their all-time mark to 0-54 in Chapel Hill.

The Yellow Jackets (9-10, 0-6), the ACC's last winless team in league play, proved the perfect bounce-back opponent for the Tigers.

Clemson trailed 34-31 just before halftime on Iman Shumpert's two foul shots, but the Tigers then went on a 28-6 run that spanned the two periods.
