Tigers Suffer Road Loss at Georgia Tech

ATLANTA, Ga. — The Clemson Tigers (17-10, 8-6) couldn’t handle an aggressive Georgia Tech (17-9, 7-6) team on Thursday as Clemson fell, 75-53, at McCamish Pavilion.

THE STATS

Ten Tigers notched at least one point on the evening as Clemson benefited from 25 points scored off the bench. After shooting 28 percent in the first 20 minutes of play, the Tigers improved their offensive game to shoot 45 percent from the field in the second half.

Senior Aliyah Collier and junior Kobi Thornton led the Tigers in scoring with 11 points apiece. Collier, who went 5-of-9 on the night, also notched five rebounds and three steals for an impressive performance off the bench. Center Tylar Bennett tallied three blocks to become  just the third ACC player this season to eclipse the 50-block mark.

“Our energy was below average, and our response to adversity was not very resilient," said Coach Butler. "You’ve got to give Georgia Tech credit for that.”

THE RECAP

Georgia Tech never trailed in the game, taking a 45-33 lead into the locker room at the half. Outscoring the Tigers 24-13 in the third quarter, the Yellow Jackets maintained a double-digit lead through the rest of the contest.
