Clemson lands top basketball recruit

Clemson basketball coach Brad Brownell on Friday landed perhaps the most highly touted recruit of his time with the Tigers in 6-8 Donte Grantham of Hargrave Prep, Va.

Grantham, who chose the Tigers over Michigan, averaged 18 points and 9 rebounds per game last season. He is a West Virginia native and was that state’s player of the year last year.

Grantham also considered Cincinnati and West Virginia in his final group. He is Clemson’s second commitment for the 2014 class.

South Carolina Stingrays coach Spencer Carbery was looking to get a little more offensive on the blue line.

The Stingrays added an offensive defenseman when they signed former Colgate star Jeremy Price.

Price, 23, enters his first full professional season after completing a four-year collegiate career at Colgate, totaling 76 points (19 goals, 57 assists) in 149 games. Price, a fourth-round pick (113th overall) of the Vancouver Canucks in 2009, recorded 20 points in each of his last two seasons at Colgate.

Andrea Davila and Lea Raedle both scored their first collegiate goals to lift The Citadel to a 2-1 victory over Elon in a Southern Conference women’s soccer match at WLI Field.

Raedle’s goal 10 minutes into the second half broke a 1-1 tie and helped the Bulldogs (3-5-2, 1-2) remain undefeated in five home games this season.

College of Charleston bounced back from a tough first set to defeat host James Madison, 22-25, 25-22, 28-26, 25-15, and stay undefeated in CAA play.

The Cougars (13-4, 3-0) continued their strong road play behind a defense that dug 75 balls and made 12 blocks, holding JMU (6-9, 1-1) to .160 hitting.

Campbell (11-7, 2-0 Big South) defeated Charleston Southern, 25-23, 25-23, 25-18, at the Buc Dome.

In a match that featured eight ties and five lead changes, including a 10-kill performance in the second set by CSU’s Katrina Houston, Campbell’s early leads in each frame proved to be too much for the Buccaneers (5-12, 0-3) to overcome.
