DeVoe, Simms stepped up in crunch time

Clemson’s sellout crowd in Littlejohn Coliseum on Saturday afternoon helped the No. 18 Tigers secure to a 67-58 victory over Notre Dame, which was Clemson’s (16-3, 5-2 ACC) first ever win over the Fighting Irish.

Two key cogs in the victory were Gabe DeVoe and Aamir Simms. Following Donte Grantham’s knee injury in the second half, Simms stepped up in crunch time with a block and three-pointer as Notre Dame closed the score gap to 59-56 with two minutes to play. DeVoe’s 17 points nonetheless helped the offense get into a rhythm early.

Following the game, DeVoe and Simms had all smiles as they spoke to the media about the victory. Here is what they had to say:
