CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) -- Tanner Smith had 14 points including the game-winning foul shots in his final game at Littlejohn Coliseum and Clemson held on to beat Virginia Tech 58-56 on Thursday night.
The Tigers (16-13, 8-7 Atlantic Coast Conference) saw their eight-point lead slip away as the Hokies tied the game at 56-all on Robert Brown's two free throws with 2:55 to go. Ten seconds later, it was Smith at the line to sink the go ahead field goals.
Virginia Tech (15-15, 4-11) had the chance to tie it with 2.2 seconds, but Cadarian Raines missed his first foul shot and then intentionally missed his second attempt. The ball wound up in Smith's hands and Clemson won for the fifth time in six games.
