Kenny Kadji had 12 points and made a go-ahead three-pointer with 36 seconds left as the third-ranked Miami men won 45-43 at Clemson. Miami is 12-0 in the Atlantic Coast Conference.
CLEMSON, S.C. — No. 3 Miami kept its perfect Atlantic Coast Conference men's season intact, no matter how bad things might have looked against Clemson.
Kenny Kadji had 12 points and made a go-ahead three-pointer with 36 seconds left in the Hurricanes' 45-43 victory Sunday.
Their poor shooting, bad turnovers and ugly execution at times against the Tigers?
"All that is irrelevant," Miami coach Jim Larranaga said. "We won the game. Time to move on."
Miami (21-3 overall, 12-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) trailed 42-38 with two minutes left.
Clemson (13-12, 5-8) was down 44-43 after Kadji's basket. Miami's Trey McKinney Jones drew an offensive foul on the Tigers' Rod Hall with 13 seconds left and made a free throw.
