LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -- Clemson enjoyed every bit of its highest-scoring game in seven years.Avry Holmes scored 22 points, Jaron Blossomgame added 17 and Clemson defeated Davidson 95-78 on Thursday in the opening game of the Tire Pros Invitational.It was Clemsons best point total since scoring 102 against Winthrop on Nov. 23, 2009. Gabe DeVoe added 16 for the Tigers (2-0), who shot 52 percent.I think we have a good team, Tigers coach Brad Brownell said. I think we have more balance than weve had in several years. ... Because of that, I think were a little tougher matchup and that was evident today by five guys in double figures.Donte Grantham and Sidy Djitte each scored 12 for the Tigers.Peyton Aldridge scored 22 points for Davidson (1-1), which went 11 for 40 from 3-point range. Jack Gibbs, who was sixth nationally in scoring at 23.7 points per game last season, scored 18 for the Wildcats.Gibbs didnt play in Davidsons opener because of a shoulder issue, and wore a protective sleeve on his left shoulder Thursday.I dont feel limited, Gibbs said. I just have to go out there, be a leader and do a better job of getting our team to do the things we do in practice. If it doesnt start with me and Peyton, theres no one else on the team thats going to start it.Davidson started off hot from 3-point range, making 6 of its first 10. But the Wildcats missed their next 16 from beyond the arc, and fell into a double-digit-sized hole that they couldnt escape the rest of the way.You start out making 3s, all of a sudden its like a poison because now you think you can make 3s, Davidson coach Bob McKillop said. The nature of our team is to go inside-out, but the demon of making those early 3s hung around our heads quite a bit.BIG PICTUREClemson: Grantham is now one shy of 100 3-pointers for his Clemson career, after making two on Thursday. ... Clemson got hit with a first-half technical because Legend Robertin was in the scorebook as wearing No. 0 -- he wears No. 00, and the penalty for that is whats called an administrative technical.Davidson: The Wildcats grabbed 20 offensive rebounds. ... Backup forward Nathan Ekwu played about 7 minutes, scored no points, took no shots -- and fouled out for the 15th time in his career.PROTECT THE BALLClemson isnt giving opponents any extra help so far this season.The Tigers have 16 turnovers, total, through the first two games -- and their opponents, Georgia and now Davidson, have turned those into only 11 points. Clemson had a 21-4 edge in points off turnovers Thursday, that 17-point margin also being the difference in the final score.UP NEXTClemson: No. 11 Xavier, which edged Missouri 83-82 in OT, in the semifinals Friday.Davidson: Missouri in the consolation semifinals Friday. Marshawn Lynch Jersey . The defence is doing its part, too.

STILLWATER, Okla. -- An executive with the American Football Coaches Association said Monday that Army will likely share the 1945 national title with Oklahoma State.Last week, the AFCA retroactively named Oklahoma State, then known as Oklahoma A&M, its 1945 champion. A committee headed by former AFCA executive director Grant Teaff made the decision.The association said several schools requested that it establish a group of coaches to select winners from 1922, when the association was founded, to 1949, the year before its coaches poll was first published. Gary Darnell, the AFCAs associate executive director, said Army met the associations criteria for 1945, and the academy plans to send in the necessary paperwork to claim its title for that year and two other years it qualifies for, though Darnell didnt specify which years.Darnell said he has spoken with officials from Army, and the program is fine with being 1945 co-champions.When youre dealing with the West Points (Army), their fans are our leaders, he said. Theyre going to see it, and theyre going to embrace the opportunity to be co-champs, or just to be recognized.Army and Oklahoma State were the only schools that met the AFCAs criteria for 1945.dddddddddddd Army was The Associated Press champion that year . Oklahoma A&M finished No. 5.The AFCA consulted the Billingsley Encyclopedia of College Football to help decide who qualified. Darnell said there is a lone qualifier for all but about seven of those years from 1922 to 1949, and its up to the schools to file the paperwork and claim their championships. In those years where its unclear, Darnell said the committee will narrow the field.Darnell said the AFCA took the 18-month process seriously before naming Oklahoma State its first retroactive champion.How can a bunch of guys just get together and vote for say, this one as opposed to this one? Darnell said. How do a bunch of people get together and decide which four teams are going to play in the playoff? Its no different. At some point, you make a decision. You ingest as many facts as you can, and make a decision and try to be as fair and honest as you can with it.---Follow Cliff Brunt on Twitter: (at)CliffBruntAP
