Nov. 15, 2020 — No. 4 Clemson v. No. 5 Virginia Tech
In the span of 18 minutes, Kimarni Smith secured victory for the fourth-ranked Clemson Tigers by registering the second hat-trick of his career. Clemson (6-2-1) defeated fifth-ranked Virginia Tech (3-2-2) by a final score of 4-1 in its ACC Quarterfinal match at Koskinen Stadium this afternoon, securing its place in Wednesday’s semifinal round.
Smith became just the second player in ACC Tournament history to score a hat-trick during a tournament match. Wake Forest’s Ihor Dotsenko was the first player to accomplish both of these feats in 1997 during the first round of the tournament. Smith’s seven points during today’s match are the most ever in an ACC Tournament game.
Today’s victory was the 340th of head coach Mike Noonan’s storied career, which spans 32 seasons as a collegiate head coach. Noonan now touts an overall record of 340-182-72, with his 340 wins making him tied for 12th amongst active NCAA Division-I head coaches for most career victories.
