For the first time in Worlds history, three South Korean teams will be playing in the semifinals. Grant Hill Jersey . After years and years of domination of the game, this is the crowning moment for the region, sending all of its representatives to the final four without being close to elimination in the quarterfinals.The ROX Tigers showcased their fangs on Saturday night, overwhelming Chinas champion EDward Gaming in four games to take the series in convincing fashion. While the two other South Korean clubs in the semifinals, Samsung Galaxy and SK Telecom T1, are cautious counter-punchers, ROX is a team that flips the switch on in the mid game and never looks back. Although ROX can also be considered a counter-attack team by sometimes falling behind in the laning phase before galvanizing around the 15-minute mark, the Tigers dont play a methodical style. When the Tigers counter-attack, its like an avalanche of punches roaring down atop the suffocated opponent.Samsung likes to counter, teamfight and find the cleanest route to victory. SKT T1 counters and play at a tempo where you can almost find yourself bored with how much control it has over the game.When ROX finds an opening, an opportunity to pounce, its lights out for the other team for all intents and purposes. The South Korean domestic champion will throw everything and everyone in waves of dives and pressure across the map.The first two games against EDG were par the course for ROX. It got ahead through smart roams and ganks heading into the mid game, and it didnt stop putting on the pressure until the gold lead and objective deficit were too much for the Chinese champion to come back from.In the third set, the Tigers, laughing in their seats, went for a more lax drafting style, putting ace top laner Song Smeb Kyung-ho on a stylish individual pick instead of something that could have secured them a simple 3-0 sweep. ROX didnt pick a composition with waveclear or any momentum if it fell down early, and EDG was able to punish ROX for playing with its food and push it to a fourth map.On that fourth map, it was back to business for the Tigers. Han Peanut Wang-ho was gifted Olaf for the first time in the series, and the technical jungler was able to take over with his immense pressure in the early game. He ended the game with 11 kills, 0 deaths and a clear victory over the man who was considered his biggest competition for best jungler at Worlds, namely Ming Clearlove Kai. It was a resounding knockout for Peanut and the Tigers as a whole as they stamped their flight tickets to New York City for next weekends clash with rival SK Telecom T1.South Korea as a region is now 24-6 through the first two rounds of the tournament. No other region as a whole (counting CIS and Brazil together as the Wildcard region) is even batting .500 so far. Tracy McGrady Jersey . Colin Wilson had two goals and an assist, and Mike Fisher scored a goal and helped set up two others in the Predators 6-4 victory over the Red Wings on Monday night. Ish Smith Jersey . -- Edmontons Val Sweeting is two wins away from a trip to Winnipeg to play in Canadas Road of the Rings in December. http:///...pistons-jersey-c-18/ . -- Peyton Manning will have all of his wide receivers available for the first time in a month when the Denver Broncos begin their playoff run Jan. CLEMSON, S.C. -- Jaron Blossomgame scored a season-high 29 points to Clemson to a 93-65 victory over S.C. State on Tuesday to increase the Tigers win streak to five games.The Tigers (7-2) shook off a sluggish first half and a defensive effort that wasnt up to coach Brad Brownells standard to outscore the Bulldogs by 29 points in the second half.Really good offensive performance. Certainly the 17 assists and only two turnovers were big stats as well, Brownell said. We probably took too many 3s but other than that, I thought we played well (offensively) and that was the difference in the game.Shelton Mitchell scored 14 points and Donte Grantham added 13 for Clemson, which shot 52 percent in the first half.The Bulldogs (2-8) shot 52 percent and got 20 points from Eric Eaves, but they lost for the seventh time in the last eight games. S.C. State stayed in the game in the first 20 minutes and trailed by nine at halftime.I was pleased at the half with what we were doing offensively and defensively, S.C. State coach Murray Garvin said. At halftime, I was positive in the locker room and looking forward to seeing what we would do in the second half.The Tigers held a 10-point lead four minutes into the second half before they went on 12-4 run to go up 18 after a Gabe DeVoe 3-pointer with 13:05 to play.The Bulldogs would crawl back within 12, but another Clemson run pushed the lead to 20 after a Grantham dunk with 9:47 left in the game, and CClemson kept pouring it on offensively. Danny Granger Jersey. I dont think we defended well, Brownell said. Some of that is the mentality of our players.BIG PICTURES.C. State: Playing its eight game of the season away from home, S.C. State lost by at least 20 points for the fifth time already.Clemson: The Tigers will get Elijah Thomas, a transfer from Texas A&M, eligible for the first time this season in their next game. The 6-foot-9, 230-pound sophomore should make an immediate impact offensively and on the boards, but Brownell is concerned about his defense.STAT OF THE NIGHTClemson improved to 13-1 all-time against South Carolina State. The Bulldogs only win over the Tigers was a 71-68 victory in 1999.TIP-INSGarvin said he was told this week that the Bulldogs, who had a hard time finding teams to come to their building, have the second hardest schedule in the country. Clemson center Sidy Djitte grabbed 13 rebounds, his fourth game this season in double digits. Clemson scored in the 90s for the second consecutive game and third time this season.UP NEXTS.C. State will play just its fourth game in the state of South Carolina when it heads to Furman on Friday at 7 p.m.Clemson takes on Alabama in a neutral site game in Birmingham, Ala., on Sunday at 4 p.m. in the Tigers first of back-to-back contests against SEC foes.
