Clemson defeated Florida State, 84-75, on Saturday. The win snapped a three-game losing skid at home to the Seminoles, and extended Clemson’s advantage all-time in the series at home to 19-11.
Today’s win was Brad Brownell’s 98th at Clemson. With two more, he will be the fifth coach in Clemson history with 100 wins in his Tiger career.
Brownell is now 29-15 (.659) at home against ACC competition, the best winning percentage of any coach in Clemson history.
Clemson’s 84 points were its most in an ACC win since scoring 87 against Georgia Tech in 2010-11, Brad Brownell’s third career conference game.
The Tigers have hit double digit three-pointers four times this season, with 10 today. Clemson had just one such game all of 2013-14.
Jordan Roper had a career-high seven three-point goals today. His previous best was six last season against Boston College.
Roper’s seven threes matched an individual best under Brad Brownell. Andre Young made seven against Georgia Tech as a senior in 2011-12.
Roper scored a team-high 23 points. It was his second 20+ point outing of the season, and the fourth of his career.
Sidy Djitte posted a career-high 14 points and eight free throws. Earlier this week, he set a free throw best with seven at North Carolina.
In two games this week, Djitte was 15-18 at the free throw line after entering as a 48 percent career shooter.
Donte Grantham matched his career high with seven assists, which came last year in the ACC Tournament against Florida State.
