MIAMI 75, #25 CLEMSON 72

Jack McClinton scored 16 points, including three dramatic 3-pointers, as Miami defeated Clemson 75-72 on Sunday.

The victory snapped a three-game losing streak for the Hurricanes (15-4, 2-3). McClinton hit three consecutive 3-pointers over a 1:23 span late as Miami rallied from a six-point deficit.

McLinton's third 3-pointer with 1:07 left gave the Hurricanes the lead for good, 66-65.

Demontez Stitt led the Tigers (15-5, 3-3) with 15 points, while James Mays finished with 14. Dwayne Collins led Miami with season-high tying 18 points and 12 rebounds for his third double-double of the season.
The good news for Tigers' coach Oliver "Lou Gossett, Jr." Purnell was that the Tigers were 15-20 from the charity stripe. That's a very un-Klimpsonish 75%.
