CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) Marcquise Reed tossed in 21 points with three assists and three steals and Elijah Thomas posted a double-double as Clemson outlasted Saint Peter's 65-60 on Tuesday night.

Thomas, who had a season-high 17 points, scored nine in the final five minutes to help the Tigers (6-2) hold on. Thomas scored five straight to put the Tigers up 54-50 with 4:17 left in the game. Saint Peter's used 3-point plays by KC Ndefo and Quinn Taylor to pull even at 56 with 2:23 remaining. Shelton Mitchell's layup and 1 of 2 free throws by David Skara gave Clemson a 59-56 lead, and Thomas and Mitchell each hit two free throws in the final 21 seconds to fend off the Peacocks (2-6).

Thomas added 12 rebounds for his third double-double of the season. Mitchell finished with 15 points.

Davauhnte Turner topped Saint Peter's with 18 points. Turner has scored in double figures in all eight games this season. Cameron Jones and Dallas Watson scored 13 and 11, respectively, and Taylor grabbed 10 rebounds.
