CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) – Jerai Grant had a career-high 20 points and Clemson won its eighth straight game, taking its snow-delayed contest with Georgia Tech 87-62 on Wednesday night.

Grant, the son of former Oklahoma standout Harvey, made nearly everything he shot and so did the Tigers (13-4, 2-1 Atlantic Coast Conference), who finished with their highest shooting percentage (69.2) against an ACC opponent in 57 years of league play.

Grant was 5 of 6 from the field and 10 of 12 from the line, surpassing his previous best of 19 set last month in a win over UNC Greensboro.

Clemson finished 27 of 39 from the field, including 9 of 9 on 3-pointers in the second half.

It was that shooting touch that sunk Georgia Tech (7-8, 0-2). Mfon Udofia led the Yellow Jackets with 14 points.

The game was originally scheduled for Tuesday night but delayed because of the snowstorm that struck the Southeast this week.
