  • Clemson’s last second round win in Greensboro was a 69-65 overtime win over Georgia Tech on March 14, 2014. The leading scorer, K.J. McDaniels (18 points), was in attendance supporting Clemson against Miami on Wednesday. McDaniels plays for the nearby Greensboro Swarm.


  • Clemson moves to 1-1 against Miami all-time in the ACC Tournament.

  • The Tigers made 11-of-their-last-12 free throws to end the game.
  • That free throw percentage is also the highest for Clemson in the ACC Tournament (previous high: 92.3 percent vs. Duke in 2017).


  • The win marked the sixth halftime deficit overcome for victory this season for the Tigers.
  • It was the fifth in 2020 and the third away from home this season for Clemson.
