The Tigers suffered another non-conference loss as they were blown out in Athens.

Clemson jumped out to a 13-5 lead at Georgia on Tuesday night but was outscored 34-11 in the rest of the first half en route to an embarrassing road loss.

The Tigers missed an incredible 18 straight field goal attempts during the Bulldogs' run before Gabe DeVoe hit a desperation jumper to end the half.

Things didn't improve in the second half for Clemson, which shot just 27% from the field as it yet again was far too satisfied to settle for long jumpshots on the offensive end.

Charles Mann scored 18 points and Kenny Gaines 17 to pace the Bulldogs, who hit 52% of their shots from the floor.

Landry Nnoko led Clemson with 11 points and six rebounds, but the Tigers didn't make an effort to get him the ball until the game was well out of hand, choosing instead to hoist 27 three-point attempts - of which they made just seven.

Clemson gets a week off before beginning a brutal ACC stretch that starts on the road at Chapel Hill.
