February 14, 2024

CLEMSON, S.C. – Clemson University men’s basketball used a 29-6 run over the last 9:50 of regulation to blow past Miami 77-60 on Wednesday night. The win on Valentine’s Day was Clemson’s 26th in program history – the most of any day on the calendar.

The Tigers (17-7, 7-6 ACC) were led offensively by Chase Hunter (Atlanta, Ga./Westlake) who finished with a season-high 20 points. Hunter totaled six made field goals, including five threes. He collected four assists and one steal.

Joseph Girard III (Glens Falls, N.Y./Glens Falls) finished with 18 points and five assists, while PJ Hall (Spartanburg, S.C./Dorman) netted 13 points and six rebounds.

On his birthday, Jack Clark (Cheltenham, Pa./Cheltenham) filled up the stat sheet, providing eight points, six rebounds, three assists, two steals and two blocks. Josh Beadle (Columbia, S.C./Cardinal Newman) led the Tiger bench with six points, two assists and one steal.

Clemson led Miami by just one at the break, 31-30, with the Hurricanes closing the opening stanza on a 6-0 run to narrow the gap.

Miami took a game-high-tying six point advantage at 54-48 with 9:50 to go in regulation. An Ian Schieffelin (Loganville, Ga./Grayson) 3-pointer from the top of the key sparked a 29-6 run to end the game and seal a 17-point victory.

The Tigers finished with the advantage in the paint, 22-18, and turned 12 Hurricane turnovers into 20 points.

Clemson returns to the court on Saturday, Feb. 17 when it hosts NC State at 7:45 p.m. on the CW Network.

Notes: Clemson improved to 17-7 overall and 7-6 in ACC play … the Tigers won their third conference game in a row with the win over Miami … the win marked the 26th in program history occurring on Valentine’s Day – the most of any day on the calendar in Clemson history … the Tigers finished 13-30 from three (43.3%) and moved to 8-0 this season when shooting 40.0 percent or better from three and to 101-26 in the Brownell Era … PJ Hall finished with 13 points, extending his double-digit scoring streak to 34 consecutive games.
