Clemson vs Virginia Tech

Clemson rallies to knock off Virginia Tech 56-49


  •  

BLACKSBURG, Va. (AP) K.J. McDaniels scored 14 points to lead Clemson to a 56-49 victory over Virginia Tech on Wednesday.

Clemson (12-4, 3-1 ACC), which upset No. 23 Duke 72-59 at home on Saturday, rallied from a 36-30 deficit with 14 minutes left to record its second road win of the season.

The Hokies grabbed their biggest lead of the game after point guard Devin Wilson hit the second of two free throws to give the Hokies a 36-30 lead with 14:01 remaining.

But the Tigers responded by scoring the next 10 points. Damarcus Harrison and Adonis Filer hit 3-pointers in the run, as Clemson reclaimed the lead for good.

Clemson's spurt ended up being a 16-4 run that ended when Jaron Blossomgame hit the second of two free throws that gave the Tigers a 46-40 lead with 6:37 left - their biggest lead of the game.

Clemson led 49-43 after McDaniels hit his lone 3-pointer of the night with 4:09 to go, but the Hokies scored six straight points, tying the game on Ben Emelogu's 3-pointer with 2:01 left.

Those were Virginia Tech's last points of the game.

Filer answered the Tigers, driving to the basket and hitting a layup while getting fouled. He made the free throw, and three-point play with 1:24 remaining to give Clemson a 52-49 lead. On their final four possessions, the Hokies missed three shots and two free throws, while the Tigers connected on five of six from the free-throw line to seal the game.

The Hokies (8-8, 1-3 in ACC) got 14 points from Wilson and 11 each from Emelogu and Joey van Zegeren. Virginia Tech shot 41.7 percent against the nation's best scoring defense (53.9 ppg) and the ACC's best field-goal percentage defense (35.9 percent), but the Hokies hurt themselves by making just 4 of 14 from the free-throw line.

Rod Hall scored 11 points for the Tigers, who shot just 40.4 percent from the floor (19 of 47).
