CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) — Freshman Al-Amir Dawes hit a twisting, driving bucket with a second left and Clemson toppled another highly ranked team by rallying past No. 6 Florida State 70-69 on Saturday.
Trent Forrest had put Florida State up by a point with a short jumper with 8.4 seconds left.
Dawes then took the ball down the right side of the lane and flipped up the game-winning shot.
Florida State’s last-chance heave was way off the mark and gave the Tigers another big win in their puzzling season that includes victories over then-No. 3 Duke and No. 5 Louisville.
Clemson overcame a 10-point deficit in the second half.
