Maryland and Clemson played an incredibly entertaining two-overtime games today at Littlejohn Coliseum, with the Tigers eventually holding on at home 77-73. Rod Hall was the star down the stretch for Clemson, scoring 10 of his 16 points in the overtime periods, while KJ McDaniels had another excellent game, scoring 26. Ultimately, however, it was Damarcus Harrison’s corner three with 1:10 remaining in the second overtime that clinched the game for the Tigers. The two teams traded free throws down the stretch, but Clemson was able to outlast the Terps at home.
Maryland head coach Mark Turgeon was clearly not thrilled with the result.
Clemson is now 18-10 and has quietly made its way into sole possession of sixth place in the conference behind a stingy defense and impressive 12-2 home record. Maryland has fallen to a disappointing 15-14.
