TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP)–Trevor Booker scored 19 points and grabbed 11 rebounds Sunday as Clemson rebounded from an early 13-point deficit to defeat Florida State 53-50, sweeping its season series with the Seminoles.
Booker hit four straight free throws in the final 11 seconds and blocked a 3-point shot by the Seminoles’ Deividas Dulkys with 5 seconds left that could have tied it.
But it was the outside sniping of sophomore guard Andre Young from nearby Albany, Ga., that made the difference. His 3-point basket gave the Tigers a 49-47 lead with 30 seconds left.
Young finished with 12 points for Clemson (20-8, 8-6 Atlantic Coast Conference).
Florida State (20-8, 8-6) didn’t have a player in double figures.
