In front of an energetic, sellout crowd in Littlejohn Coliseum on Saturday afternoon, No. 18 Clemson protected its home court as it rolled to a 67-58 victory over Notre Dame. With the win, Clemson (16-3, 5-2 ACC) secured its first ever win over the Fighting Irish.
The Tigers came out of the tunnel hungry and excited, and it showed on the court. Donte Grantham, Marcquise Reed, Shelton Mitchell, and Gabe DeVoe’s ability to score in double figures as well as the team’s collective defensive discipline and the ability to finish big plays led the Tigers to the win.
Clemson shot 44.2 percent from the field and 39.1 percent from behind the arc.
