(CLEMSON, S.C.) — Third-ranked Miami had to make a late comeback to stay undefeated in conference play.
Kenny Kadji hit a three-pointer with 36 seconds left to lead the Hurricanes past Clemson, 45-43 on Sunday night.
With the win, Miami moved to 12-0 in ACC play but overcame a 34 percent shooting night to get there. “We’re going to fight until the clock is finished,” Kadji said. “That’s something coach always tells us. You want to play hard and try to win.”
Clemson (13-12) held a 42-38 lead with two minutes to go after a Jordan Roper steal and layup, but then the Hurricanes made their comeback.
Shane Larkin had seven points for the Hurricanes, who committed 13 turnovers on the night.
The Tigers had a chance to tie the game, but missed two close range shots as the buzzer sounded.
