LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) - 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.

Gabe DeVoe added 16 for the Tigers (2-0). It was the most points Clemson has scored in 196 games under coach Brad Brownell.

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, made his season debut after recovering from a left shoulder issue and scored 18 for the Wildcats.
