      By JEFFREY COLLINSAssociated Press

      CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) - K.J. McDaniels scored 15 points and had 12 rebounds to lead Clemson to a 61-53 win over Wake Forest on Saturday.

      The Tigers (13-4, 4-1 Atlantic Coast) are off to their best start in the ACC since winning their first five league games in 1997_the last time Clemson went to the Sweet 16.

      The Tigers again relied on their nation-leading defense. Clemson has held every ACC opponent to 60 points or under this year.

      Wake Forest (12-6, 2-3) shot just 36.2 percent (21-of-58), matching Clemson's field goal defense for the season exactly. The Tigers also came into the game allowing just 53.6 points a game.

      Coron Williams led the Demon Deacons with 13 points.

      Wake Forest is now 1-27 on the road in the ACC under fourth-year coach Jeff Bzdelik.
