Camden High senior-to-be Shukree Barfield, one of the top two-way linemen in South Jersey, has made an oral commitment to attend Clemson on a football scholarship. The 6-foot-4, 290-pound Barfield said he chose Clemson over Tulane, Penn State and Tennessee. "I thought they have really treated me well while recruiting me," Barfield said. "I think I'm going to a good football program, and I'll get a good education. " Barfield said he was being recruited as a defensive lineman, although he was also a dominant offensive lineman.

CHARLESTON, S.C. - Clemson's top scorer, K.J. McDaniels, got going in the second half and proved too much for Temple in a 72-58 win over the Owls at TD Arena in the first round of the Charleston Classic Thursday night. Daniels finished with 20 points and eight rebounds as Clemson improved to 4-0. The Owls (1-3) will face Georgia at 7 p.m. Friday in the consolation bracket. Nemanja Djurisic had 19 points for the Bulldogs (1-2) in a 94-82 loss to Davidson (1-3). The Owls backcourt of junior Will Cummings and sophomore Quenton DeCosey proved difficult for the Tigers to handle in the first half, when the two guards combined for 20 first-half points.

To those skeptics who thought Clemson had squandered its potential and become mediocre, Merl Code has a message: "I would definitely have to say we're back," he said. Fourth-seeded Clemson held 13th-seeded Miami of Ohio to its lowest point-total of the year in a 68-56 victory yesterday in the NCAA Tournament's Midwest Regional. Miami also scored only 56 in a one-point victory over Western Michigan in February. Greg Buckner scored 22 points as Clemson (22-9) put the brakes to a 2-5 season-ending skid that included losses to Duke, Florida State, Wake Forest and North Carolina.

Stadium security admonished young Clemson fans for throwing a blue-and-orange football during halftime last night. Apparently, they said nothing to Clemson's backups. Will Proctor threw for 151 yards and two touchdowns to stake the 12th-ranked Tigers to a 46-point halftime lead. Cullen Harper took over in the second half, throwing for 71 yards and another touchdown as Clemson scored 14 more points en route to a 63-9 win over Temple, in front of 30,246 at Bank of America Stadium.

The California Bears, who needed double-digit comebacks to win their first two NIT games, got off to a quick start for once - and then struggled to handle their early success. The Bears had a 26-2 run in the first half and survived a second-half scare from Colorado State to defeat the Rams, 71-62, last night and reach the NIT semifinals. California blew a 21-point second-half lead over the Rams, who briefly took the lead twice while holding the Bears to one basket in a 14-minute span.

The basketball season ended in disappointment last night for Rutgers, which struggled against the size and strength of Clemson in a 78-68 second-round defeat in the National Invitation Tournament. Guard Terrell McIntyre had 16 points, and three other players reached double figures to help the Tigers, taking advantage of their power game inside, move into the tournament quarterfinals. Clemson (18-14), which had advanced with an opening-round 77-57 triumph over Georgia, will face Butler, which advanced with a 75-62 second-round win over Old Dominion.

Bishop Eustace senior Marc Sauer, a pitcher who helped guide the Crusaders to the Parochial A state baseball title, has accepted a baseball scholarship from Clemson. Sauer made an oral commitment late last week and will sign with the Atlantic Coast Conference school during the early signing period Nov. 12-19. As a junior, Sauer was an Inquirer first-team all-South Jersey selection, with a 12-1 record and a 2.04 ERA. "The school and the baseball program are excellent," Sauer said yesterday.

Clemson's success is due to great defense. Then the Lady Tigers ran into Connecticut's defense last night. "It was shocking. Just getting across halfcourt was tough," sophomore guard Krystal Scott said after the top-seeded Huskies routed visiting Clemson, 83-45, holding the Lady Tigers to three field goals in the first half. "It seemed like there was an open lane to the basket, and here comes someone at you," Scott said. The Lady Tigers, the No. 11 seed, shot just 10-for-49 for the game (20.4 percent)

Some silver linings are harder to find than others. But Villanova coach George Bennett didn't have to search too hard to find one for his Wildcats after yesterday's 8-3 loss to top-seeded Clemson in the NCAA Northeast Regional baseball tournament. "We're a notch below the top two or three teams in this regional," Bennett said after his team was eliminated from the tournament. "But we're climbing, and I think we gained a lot of respect here.

QUINN COOK scored a career-high 27 points and No. 1 Duke held Clemson to its lowest-scoring half in 12 years in a 68-40 victory over the visiting Tigers on Tuesday night. Ryan Kelly added 12 points in the first half but sat out the second with what team officials said was a right leg injury. Coach Mike Krzyzewski said a CAT scan and X-rays are planned. "We're hopeful that it's not real serious, but for precautionary reasons, we felt that it wasn't good to play him in the second half," Krzyzewski said.

AS HUMAN BEINGS, we possess plenty of instinctual reactions that play important roles in the propagation of our species. For instance, when confronted with a threat, we feel an urge to fight or flee. So it remains a bit of a mystery that, despite years of natural selection, the urge we feel when confronted with a good idea is to form a committee and ensure its demise. Clemson plays Alabama Monday night for the so-called national college football title, and if history is any indication, it will be an awful, awful game.

Y OU'RE NOT go to believe this. Clemson coach Dabo Swinney decided to name long snapper Jim Brown a captain for this week's game against Syracuse as a tribute to the great Orange running back with the same name. A nice gesture, no? Except none his players ever heard of the original Jim Brown, the Hall of Fame running back, who starred at 'Cuse from 1954-56. "One thing that's kind of funny, I've been waiting all year to name Jim Brown the captain for the Syracuse game," Swinney told Clemson reporters.

As Notre Dame gets set to play Navy, let's not move past 21-9 too quickly. That was the score, Notre Dame fans remember all too well, when the Irish got to the end zone at Clemson last weekend, early in the fourth quarter. Going for two points right then, with 14 minutes and 13 seconds left in regulation, apparently was what Irish coach Brian Kelly's little cheat sheet told him to do. That move may have taken the Irish out of national-championship consideration. With four minutes left in a game, that makes sense.

IT WAS about this time last year when Aaron Jersild first got a chance to see the sweet-swinging high school junior from Georgia. Jersild, a former Clemson pitcher and the Phillies' area scout in Georgia, watched Cornelius Randolph, a lefthanded-hitting shortstop from Griffin High who had committed to Clemson, and filed a glowing report. "He was an unusually polished high school hitter, and you just don't see that every day with what we do," Jersild said yesterday at Citizens Bank Park.

Cornelius Randolph has two options: a full scholarship to play baseball at Clemson, or a signing bonus in the millions and a contract with the Phillies. The Phillies' first-round pick said Wednesday he's "pretty confident" that a deal will be made soon with the team. "We'll see how it goes, though. " On Monday, the Phillies used the 10th overall pick in the draft on Randolph, who signed a letter of intent in November to play baseball at Clemson. Randolph is being advised by agent Scott Boras, one of baseball's most powerful figures.

MANOLO SANCHEZ could just as easily have been a baseball player instead of a soccer player. The University City native spent as much time on diamonds as on rectangular fields while growing up. But once soccer really took hold of him, it never let go. Over the years, the game has led Sanchez on a path through Germantown Friends School, the prestigious Yardley-Makefield Soccer program, and a college career that started at Louisville and ended...

Rookie K.J. McDaniels played just 11 minutes for the 76ers on Wednesday night, scoring eight points. His role has diminished over the last four games since he played 28 minutes last week against Toronto. It is frustrating and hard to deal with, he said. "But I'm just coming in here and trying to work hard every day," McDaniels said. "I'm trying to leave it to Coach and stay humble about it. " His mother chose to be a bit more open. Shawn Chapman McDaniels posted on Twitter Wednesday during the loss to the Celtics that the Sixers were tanking the season and messing with her son. In October, she tweeted that the Sixers were a "screwed up program.

SAMMY WATKINS III had one main piece of advice for his sons, Sammy Watkins IV and Jaylen Watkins, as they grew up in Fort Myers, Fla. "If you want to play football, if that's what you want to do as a career, you have to go at it hard," the elder Watkins said yesterday, during a break from his job driving tractor-trailers filled with cases of Gatorade. This, Watkins knew from experience, having shown promise as a high school running back himself. He said he was highly recruited, but didn't do well on the SAT and ended up at Concord College in West Virginia, where he played a year before dropping out and entering the Army Reserve.
