CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) – Evan Smotrycz had a career-high 18 points and Michigan won an ACC/Big Ten Challenge game for the first time in five years with 69-61 victory at Clemson on Tuesday night.

The Wolverines (4-2) had lost four straight in the conferences’ annual matchups. This time, though, they used freshman Smotrycz and Tim Hardaway Jr. to build a big lead that Clemson (5-2) could not overcome.

Smotrycz had a 3-pointer and a pair of three-point plays as Michigan took a 36-16 lead. The Tigers cut the lead to 45-37 before Jordan Morgan scored six consecutive points to restore Michigan’s edge. The Wolverines improved to 4-0 all-time against Clemson.

Andre Young led the Tigers with 14 points.

Young had four 3-pointers for Clemson.

These teams hadn’t met since the 2009 NCAA tournament when the Wolverines took a 62-59 first-round victory.
