No. 6 FSU basketball falls to Clemson

The No. 6 Florida State Seminoles fell to the Clemson Tigers, 70-69 in a testy Saturday showing. The Tigers have now beat the top-3 ACC teams (FSU, Duke, & LOU) at home this season. In addition to Florida State gifting the Tigers 23 points off of 16 turnovers, questionable calls allowed Clemson to keep the game close and inch away with the victory. With just over four minutes left in the match-up Anthony Polite scored his first three of the game giving Florida State back the lead, 59-56, but the Tigers refused to back down. Clemson’s Tevin Mack made a clutch shot from beyond the arc to give the Tigers a 2-point lead with under two minutes left in regulation.
