CLEMSON, S.C. (AP/WSPA) โ€” Aamir Simms and Al-Amir Dawes each scored 19 points and Clemson beat short-handed Miami 66-58 for its fifth straight victory while head coach Brad Brownell recorded his 200th win with the program.

Clemson (15-5, 9-5) took the first double-digit lead of the game during a 6-0 run to make it 57-44 with 9:17 to go. Miami scored the next 10 to get within three points at 5:16 but the Hurricanes only made one more field goal the rest of the way.

Dawes made all four of his 3-point attempts, and Simms and Hunter Tyson added three each as Clemson hit 11 of 22 from distance and shot 49% overall. Isaiah Wong led Miami, which only had six scholarship players, with 28 points.

Next for Clemson is a road contest at Syracuse on March 3.
