Clemson's team achieved the ninth ACC win for only the ninth time in 61 seasons as a
member of the conference. The Tigers managed the victory despite shooting 36 percent
overall, 15 percent from three, and yielding 63 rebounds to the Terrapins. Clemson
did protect the ball, however, with only nine turnovers in 50 minutes. The Tigers
were 24-for-35 from the stripe.
K.J. McDaniels posted his fifth "20 & 10" game of the season, finishing with 26

Landry Nnoko (11) and Damarcus Harrison (10). Hall added seven rebounds and five
assists, while Nnoko pulled down nine rebounds.
Harrison hit the biggest shot of the game for Clemson. With the Tigers trailing
71-70 in the second overtime, he received a pass on the wing and promptly swished a
three-pointer to give Clemson a three-point edge. The Tigers responded with
McDaniels' sixth block, and a Charles Mitchell turnover and foul put Clemson ahead
by three on Harrison's free throw.
The Tigers have a quick turnaround for their next game, an 8 p.m. Tuesday tilt
against Miami at Littlejohn Coliseum. The game is set to be televised by the ACC
Tigers down Terps in double OT
