The Tigers’ repeated close calls in the Atlantic Coast Conference this year have almost become a cruel joke. Even when it looks like they can’t lose, they still do.
Clemson led Virginia Tech by two points in the final 20 seconds, denied two Hokies chances at the rim and just needed another stop or, at worst, to limit them to no more than two on their final possession. Sure enough, Seth Allen hit a three-pointer with 3.8 seconds left. Tech won 71-70.
