The Seminoles crushed the Tigers behind Dwayne Bacon’s 29 points.

NCAA Basketball: Clemson at Florida State Melina Vastola-USA TODAY Sports

Dwayne Bacon scored 29 points, 10 other Florida State players chipped in at least 6, and the Seminoles rolled to a blowout win over Clemson on Sunday.

Florida State shot a blistering 66% from the field and made 17 of its 30 three-point attempts against the Tigers, who had no answer for the onslaught.

Clemson certainly aided that percentage with its season-high 22 turnovers that led to numerous easy transition baskets.

Bacon led the charge with a 6 of 9 performance from three-point range, and Florida State used its deep bench to wear down Clemson with a plethora of capable scoring threats.

Avry Holmes scored 15 to lead the Tigers, but there was nowhere near enough help to make this a competitive game.

While Clemson was not expected to win this game necessarily, the Tigers’ performance left an incredible amount to be desired. They have a quick turnaround with a home game against red-hot Syracuse - a game they now desperately need to win to keep an NCAA Tournament berth within reach.
