Clemson Falls to No. 5 Notre Dame

CLEMSON, S.C. — Hosting No. 5 Notre Dame (20-2, 7-1) in a Thursday night ACC matchup, the Clemson Tigers (14-7, 5-3) faced a tough 101-63 setback in Littlejohn Coliseum. Senior guard Aliyah Collier poured in a season-high 22 points to lead all Clemson scorers.

THE STATS

As a team, the Tigers shot 43.8 percent from the field for their 14th game shooting above 40 percent this season. The entire bench contributed to Clemson’s scoring as 10 of 11 Tigers sunk a bucket in the contest.

Continuing to shine off the bench, Collier knocked down a season-best four 3-pointers for the Tigers, to go along with a team-high eight rebounds. Junior Kobi Thornton finished the night with 16 points on 8-of-11 shooting.

“Aliyah played like a senior and we needed her to bring that fight and conviction,” said Coach Butler. “I was really proud of her tonight and hopefully she can carry that forward on Saturday.”

THE RECAP
