Cold Tigers Fall to Virginia

By

Once again Clemson had a chance to win an ACC road game, but fell just short after a late rally.  The performance however was one of Clemson’s worst of the season as they fell 49-47.

The Tigers shot only 33 percent for the game and hit only 3-18 from three-point range.  Clemson also only shot 54 percent from the line.

Andre Young led the Tigers with 13 points.  Demontez Stitt struggled shooting on 3-14 on the night including 0-5 from three.

Clemson left their offense at home when they travelled to Virginia Wednesday night.  The Tigers didn’t score their first basket until the 12:42 mark in the first half.  At that point they trailed 14-3. 

The Tigers rallied to cut the lead to five at 18-13 with 7:06 left in the first half.  Clemson would not score in the final 7:06 of the first half and trailed 29-13 at the half.

With 11:37 to go in the game Virginia held a 15 point lead at 38-23.  Clemson went on a 12-2 run to cut the lead to five at 40-35 with 4:07 to go after Stitt scored two for the Tigers.

With 49 seconds to go the Tigers tied the score at 42 after Andre Young hit two free throws.  Virginia would go on a 4-0 run to stretch the lead to 46-42.  Milton Jennings hit a three-pointer with 3 seconds to go to cut the game to 1.  The Tigers missed a shot at the buzzer and fell 49-47.

Clemson fell to 15-7 on the season and 4-4 in the ACC.  The Tigers now travel to Atlanta as they look for their first ACC road win of the year.
