CLEMSON, S.C. – Senior Mckenna Slavik reached 3,500 career assists behind a 50-assist performance as Clemson defeated Boston College, 3-1, on Sunday afternoon in Jervey Gym. Slavik becomes only the seventh player in Clemson history to reach the milestone.

Hannah pushed to keep the Tigers alive, but it wasn’t enough as Boston College evened things as a set a piece with a 25-23 set win.

Clemson responded in the third by going on a seven-point scoring run led by Clark recording two aces and Finney, Dailey and McGrath clocking kills. Boston College made a push to take the set after tying things at 20-all, but McGrath and Slavik closed the door with kills to take the third set, 25-22.
