TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Ruby Whitehorn, Amari Robinson, and Danielle Rauch all had career days, and Day Harris dropped a game-high 22 points and the Clemson Tigers battled and were edged in overtime on the road by the Florida State Seminoles 79-82.

Despite a slow start to the game and trailing by as much as nine points early on, the Tigers rallied behind a pair of three pointers from Rauch to go on an 18-6 run to close the first period with a 22-19 advantage.

A strong defensive effort from both teams kept the scoring low in the second frame, but the Seminoles pulled ahead with a buzzer beating shot to give FSU a 33-31 edge as the squads headed back to the locker rooms.

The Tigers put on a show for the ages in the third quarter, recording the highest-scoring third period in program history. Harris, playing in the final regular season game of her career, led the charge for Amanda Butler’s team. She scored 12 points on 50% shooting from the floor and a flawless 6-6 from the charity stripe. Robinson and Whitehorn chipped in five and four points, respectively, and the Tigers closed their 30-point third quarter with a 61-53 advantage.

Heading down the stretch in the fourth quarter, a Nya Valentine three extended the Tiger lead to eight points at 71-63, but the Seminoles closed regulation on an 8-0 run to send the game to overtime.

With six seconds left, FSU connected on a shot to give them a 79-77 lead over the Tigers, but Butler and company called timeout to rally the troops and draw up their answer. Out of the timeout, Harris got the ball and got into the paint where she floated up a shot that found the bottom of the net to give her 1,499 career points and knot the game up at 79.

Following a FSU timeout, the Seminoles missed a shot which resulted in a Clemson rebound. The Tigers called timeout but didn’t have any remaining. FSU went to the line to shoot and make a free throw which proved to be the decisive blow. Florida State escaped with an 81-79 win on its senior day.
