Brownell proud of Clemson's comeback win

By

Fifteenth-ranked Clemson rallied from an 11-point deficit early in the second half against Georgia Tech to earn a come-from-behind, 75-67 victory on Saturday afternoon in Littlejohn Coliseum.

“Proud of my team for the way we came back and won today,” Clemson head coach Brad Brownell said. “I don’t think we played our best basketball, but I thought Georgia Tech’s kids played well. We got off to a great start, guys were making shots, and I think maybe we felt like the game was going to be a little bit easier than it turned out to be.”

Senior guard Gabe DeVoe bucketed a game-high 25 points, while starting point guard Shelton Mitchell contributed 14 points in his return from a head injury. Marcquise Reed and Elijah Thomas also scored in double-figures with 13 points apiece.

Mitchell tied the game on a pair of free-throws with 3:39 remaining, and Reed knocked through the eventual game-winning shot that gave Clemson a 63-61 edge with just over three minutes left. DeVoe later helped the Tigers seal the deal thanks his fourth 3-pointer, which gave them an eight-point lead with 48 seconds to play.

“Really proud of the way our guys closed the game out,” Brownell said. “We didn’t have our best stuff today because of the way Georgia Tech competed, and a lot of credit goes to those guys.”
