Clemson, SC (AP) - Jerai Grant had a career-high 20 points and
Clemson won its eighth straight game, taking its snow-delayed
contest with Georgia Tech 87-62 on Wednesday night.
Grant, the son of former Oklahoma standout Harvey, made nearly
everything he shot and so did the Tigers (13-4, 2-1 Atlantic Coast
Conference), who finished with their highest shooting percentage
(69.2) against an ACC opponent in 57 years of league play.
Grant was 5 of 6 from the field and 10 of 12 from the line,
surpassing his previous best of 19 set last month in a win over UNC
Clemson finished 27 of 39 from the field, including 9 of 9 on
3-pointers in the second half.
It was that shooting touch that sunk Georgia Tech (7-8, 0-2).
Mfon Udofia led the Yellow Jackets with 14 points.
The game was originally scheduled for Tuesday night but delayed
because of the snowstorm that struck the Southeast this week.
