Honor’s 3-point shot from 25 feet banked in off the glass with a little over one second remaining, giving Clemson a thrilling 74-72 victory over Georgia Tech in Littlejohn Coliseum Friday night.
Trailing 72-72 and with just 8.4 seconds left to play, the Tigers fouled Georgia Tech point guard Jose Alvarado, an 88-percent free throw shooter. Alvarado missed both free throws, opening the door for the Tigers.
Clemson was out of timeouts and couldn’t stop the clock, so Honor followed a hard screen by Aamir Simms (on Alvarado) and banked in his game-winning shot. Simms tied his career-high with 25 points, while Honor scored 12.
