Despite playing one of its worst games of the season offensively, the Hurricanes were able to play stout defense and come away with a big two-point win in front of 8,998 fans at Clemson Sunday.
The Hurricanes were just 7-of-27, including 1-of-10 from three-point range, on field goals in the first half. Despite the offensive struggles, they still managed to take an 18-16 lead into halftime.
The Canes played much better offense in the second half, hitting on 44-percent of their shots. Center Kenny Kadji, who hit a huge three-point shot very late in the game, led the Hurricanes with 12 points. Kadji, who also grabbed four rebounds, was the only Miami player in double digits in points. Durand Scott led the team with 11 boards.
Jordan Roper scored 19 in a losing effort for Clemson, while Devin Booker scored 10 and grabbed 11 rebounds.
The win sends the 3rd-ranked Hurricanes to 21-3 on the season, including a 12-0 record in the ACC. Their dream season will continue at home on Tuesday against Virginia.
