Collier's 18 points and 10 boards lead Clemson to OT win; Lady Tigers start 5-0

Clemson sophomore Aliyah Collier, the leader of Laney's 2015 state championship team, scored 18 points and grabbed 8 rebounds in Clemson's 78-67 overtime win against Louisiana Tech Tuesday. The Lady Tigers are off to a 5-0 start, and Collier is averaging 11 points, 8 rebounds, and 2 steals per contest.

Seeing Collier showing emotion after sinking one of her 3 triples in the highlights above reminds me of one of my all time favorite interviews, which I recorded from GPB's broadcast immediately after Aliyah led the Lady Wildcats to the state title by posting the gaudy stats shown on the screen:

Clemson next plays a pair of games in Daytona Beach, Florida, against Loyola Chicago, Thursday (1:15 P.M.), and Wright State, Saturday (11:00 A.M.).
