Marcquise Reed hits go-ahead layup as Clemson downs Georgia Tech

Marcquise Reed hits go-ahead layup as Clemson downs Georgia Tech”

But the Yellow Jackets were unable to get a shot off before the final buzzer.

The senior scored a career-high 25 points on 10-for-15 shooting to lead the Tigers to the victory.

The Tigers are back in action on Tuesday night, when they host North Carolina.

His vow may have had its intended effect. The Yellow Jackets were 22-of-72 (30.6 percent) from the field and 0-of-9 from three-point range.

The possessions will be important Sunday when Clemson comes to town.

Forward Abdoulaye Gueye continued his standout play, scoring 14 points on 7-for-14 shooting. In the most recent contest, the Tigers won 74-62.

Clemson was in danger of getting blown out early as the Yellow Jackets built a 12-point lead in the first half before Clemson cut the deficit to 38-36 at halftime. The bright spot has been his offense; he's totaled 40 points in the last two games and scored 23 against Florida State.

Lammers' lengthy one-handed putback gave the Jackets their first 10-point lead with 13:03 left in the first half. It almost fell apart for Clemson when Reed, with 3 seconds remaining, whiffed on his only free throw attempt of the game and his first in 15 attempts overall. Tech is putting up just 66.2 points per game while allowing 65 per game on defense.

It was a night of career-highs for the Tigers - Reed had a career-high 11 assists, the most for a player under head coach Brad Brownell. Huland El has led the team or been tied for the team scoring lead in each of the last three games, averaging 15.7 points per game in that span.

Midway through the second half, Tech trailed 54-49 and was trying to get back into the game.

"We have to be much better taking care of the ball", Pastner said. Georgia Tech's lost 3 straight, while Clemson is up and down and just lost their 2nd leading scorer in Donte Grantham to a knee injury.

Four players are averaging at least 11.8 points per game for Georgia Tech, they are Josh Okogie (17.7), Jose Alvarado (13.2), Tadric Jackson (12.6) and Ben Lammers (11.8).

Down 68-60 with 2:33 to go, Josh Okogie scored all 10 of Georgia Tech's points during a 10-2 run over the next 1:52 and knotted the score at 70-apiece on a pair of free throws with 41 seconds remaining. After O'Neill hit two free throws, it turned into a three-point game with 39 seconds remaining.

Clemson improves to 17-4 overall and 6-3 in the ACC. Tech falls to 10-11 overall and 3-5 in the ACC. Sunday, in fact, was the one-year anniversary of the Jackets' stunning upset of Notre Dame at McCamish. The public betting is backing Clemson, but I think the Jackets will win outright.
