Tuesday Night Hoops

Demontez Stitt
CLEMSON 60, N.C. STATE 50 – Demontez Stitt had 17 points and Clemson overcame a 19-point deficit to defeat North Carolina State on Tuesday night.

The Tigers (14-6, 3-3 ACC) had lost their past two league games and looked lost in the early going at Littlejohn Coliseum, falling behind 31-12 in the first half.

 But two backbreaking runs, including a 16-0 charge after halftime, lifted Clemson to victory.

Stitt took things over down the stretch with nine points in the Tigers’ go-ahead run. Jerai Grant added 14 points and 11 rebounds for Clemson.

Tracy Smith had 13 points to lead the Wolfpack, who scored just 16 points in the second half and made only one basket over the game’s last 8 minutes.

If Sid Lowe wasn’t in trouble with Wolfpack Nation (and he was), he is now (and he is).

GEORGIA TECH 72, VIRGINIA TECH 57 – Brian Oliver scored 28 points, Iman Shumpert had a triple-double and Georgia Tech continued its strong home play by beating Virginia Tech on Tuesday night.

Iman Shumpert
Shumpert had 22 points with game-high totals of 12 rebounds and 11 assists. He added seven steals, another high mark for the game.

Georgia Tech (10-9, 3-3 ACC) improved to 8-2 at home, including 3-0 in ACC games at Alexander Memorial Coliseum.

Shumpert’s triple-double was the first for Georgia Tech since Kenny Anderson against Pittsburgh on Dec. 28, 1989.

The Hokies (13-6, 3-3) suffered only their second loss in its last 11 games. Jeff Allen had 18 points and 11 rebounds for VT.
