CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) – Jaron Blossomgame had 15 points and Donte Grantham hit a tie-breaking free throw as Clemson held off a late Nebraska push for a 60-58 victory in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge on Wednesday night.
The Tigers (5-2) led 58-54 on Grantham’s 3-pointer with 3:16 to go. But a Glynn Watson Jr. hit a straight-on three to tie things at 58 all. After Grantham hit the front end of a one-and-one, Watson missed a three-pointer and Anton Gill turned the ball over with 10 seconds left.
The Cornhuskers (4-3) had a chance to tie at the end, but Tai Webster’s runner in the lane bounced off the rim.
Grantham finished with nine points and five rebounds for Clemson.
Watson had a game-high 20 points and Webster scored 12. Ed Morrow had 10 points and 12 rebounds for Nebraska.
