CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) – Trevor Booker closed out his home career at Clemson with 21 points to lead the surging Tigers to a 91-80 victory over Georgia Tech on Tuesday night.
Demontez Stitt added 20 points as Clemson (21-8, 9-6 Atlantic Coast Conference) won for the fifth time in six games and all but cemented a spot in the NCAA tournament.
The Tigers used a 25-7 run that spanned the halves to take control of what had been a 41-41 game. The Yellow Jackets (19-10, 7-8) could not respond and now are in desperation mode, needing to beat Virginia Tech on Saturday simply to finish .500 in the league.
Glen Rice Jr. had 17 points and Derrick Favors 16 for Georgia Tech.
