BIRMINGHAM, Ala. -- Shelton Mitchell scored a career-high 18 points and grabbed five rebounds Sunday as Clemson defeated Alabama 67-54.Alabama (5-5) narrowed Clemsons lead to 11 points or less three times over the final 12 minutes. Clemsons Gabe Devoe responded by sinking 3-pointers the first two times to maintain the double-digit advantage for the Tigers (8-2).Fellow Tiger, Avry Holmes only points in the second half came on a 3-pointer that followed Devoes, a sequence that both coaches felt was critical in the game.It was big. Thats what you got to do in road games, Clemson coach Brad Brownell said. Make big shots, you know the home teams going to make a run or two.That big shot didnt fall the third time Devoe took one from behind the arc to secure Clemsons double-digit lead, and Alabama cut the lead down to nine points for the first time during the second half.Clemson held on, responding to the Crimson Tides late 7-0 run with a layup from Mitchell who also sank four free throws over the final minute of the game.Devoe finished with 11 points to join Mitchell in double figures for Clemson.Brownell said his teams defense wasnt up to his expectations in Clemsons game on Tuesday against SC State, but he thought it was a difference maker today, especially in the first half.I just think we kept them to one shot was a big thing, and I thought our guys were locked in, Brownell said. We had some time to get ready from our last game so we prepared very well. I thought our individual defense was pretty good.Avery Johnson Jr. came off the bench for the Crimson Tide to score a career-high 17 points. He was the only Alabama player to finish in double figures.We told our guys hes a great layup maker and thats a skill a lot of guards dont have, being able to make shots over top of shot-blockers and big guys when you make penetration, Brownell said.The Crimson Tide outrebounded the Tigers 37-32 thanks in large part to the efforts of Donta Hall and Dazon Ingram who grabbed seven and six respectively.BIG PICTUREAlabama: The Crimson Tide was unable to overcome a first half that saw the team miss 11 straight shots from the floor and must now win one of the teams next two games to avoid starting Southeastern conference play under .500.Clemson: The Tigers overcame a sluggish start of their own to get revenge for last years 51-50 loss to the Crimson Tide and extended the teams current winning streak to six games with the victory.UP NEXTAlabama: The Crimson Tides tour of its home state continues with a trip to Huntsville, Alabama to face Arkansas State on Wednesday.Clemson: The Tigers can earn their second straight win against SEC competition with a road victory over rival South Carolina on Wednesday.HE SAID IT: Alabama coach Avery Johnson on taking care of the basketball: Like I tell our guys all the time. Think about your closest family member. Youre not going to throw them away because you love them right? Just think about this, so value that ball just like you value your closest family member.QUICK COMPARE:Alabama: The Crimson Tide finished the night 3-of-20 beyond the arc and only made one of seven attempts taken in the final three minutes.Clemson: The Tigers finished the night 9-of-22 shooting 3s and made three of six shots taken behind the arc in the final 11 minutes of the game and attempted none in the final three minutes.

RIO DE JANEIRO -- Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti acknowledged Saturday that the results of Novembers U.S. presidential election could weigh heavily on his citys chances of hosting the 2024 Olympics, saying that a victory by Donald Trump could turn off International Olympic Committee voters.Garcetti also told The Associated Press that Los Angeles could offer the last best hope for the United States to host the Summer Olympics again before the American people begin tuning out from the Games.Garcetti, a 45-year-old Democrat and supporter of Hillary Clinton, is in Brazil to observe the Rio de Janeiro Games and pitch his citys bid to IOC members. One of the main topics of conversation with the delegates has been the U.S. election -- and the prospects of a Trump presidency.I think for some of the IOC members, they would say, Wait a second, can we go to a country like that, where weve heard things that we take offense to? Garcetti said. But I think that gives us even more urgency globally, where we can say, This is something that is a different strength maybe than the things that youve heard or the things you believe. I think we continue no matter what the outcome of the election is.A new U.S. president will be in office when the IOC selects the 2024 host city in September 2017.Los Angeles, which hosted the Olympics in 1932 and 1984, is competing with Paris, Rome and Budapest, Hungary.Everything that were going through right now in the United States politically, I dont want us to be a country that turns into itself, said Garcetti, who spoke at the Democratic convention in Philadelphia last month. I think we have to look outward to the world.The IOCs 98 members come from all over the world, and Trumps comments on Mexicans, Muslims and other issues wont encourage them to vote for a U.S. city, according to Garcetti.They wonder, Is America going to take this strange turn? Garcetti said. Were there to be an election result that is less international, more inward focused, maybe theres even greater urgency to a bid like this.Garcetti adde: But even if that doesnt happen, even the threat of that, the talk of that, the idea that we exclude people based on who they are at our borders, gives us urgency to having things like the Olympics undersscore who we are and what were about.ddddddddddddos Angeles bid chairman Casey Wasserman said the city will continue to push the bid on its own technical merits.I dont think you can judge a country by who runs for president, he said. I think you should judge a country on who is the president and their beliefs and their policies. And clearly thats something the members will take into account. But thats something I cant control.Los Angeles is seeking to bring the Summer Olympics back to the U.S. for the first time since Atlanta hosted the 1996 Games. The bid follows failed attempts by New York and Chicago for the 2012 and 2016 Olympics, respectively.I dont know if this is the last best hope, but I do think that after a few bids, after a while, there will be real feeling of people tuning out in America, a new generation that isnt connected with the legacy sports, said Garcetti, who attended Rios opening ceremony on Friday night, 32 years after going to the close of the 84 Games as a 13-year-old.Recent American bids have suffered from anti-U.S. sentiment among some members in the European-dominated IOC, and Garcetti said he is working to change that.There may be a general anti-Americanism, but once you create a relationship with somebody, it becomes a relationship with Eric and that person, he said. As we get to know each other over time, they realize you cant slap a title, just like American and a caricature of what that means on anybody.I want to listen, Garcetti said. I dont want to just come in and say, Were the Americans, we get the most medals, we bring in the sponsorships. That turns people off.He acknowledged there could be a backlash among some IOC members to what they consider U.S. meddling in global sports affairs, including the Justice Department investigation of world soccer body FIFA and the U.S. Anti-Doping Agencys call for a total ban on Russias Olympic team over state-sponsored doping.Ive been very careful to say, Look, what prosecutors or anti-doping officials do, at least in our country, is completely separate from what a mayor or a city government is about. Were not involved at all. ' ' '
