Clemson Begs Florida State to Send Them Home

And then there were 11 

When Clemson called timeout with 1:32 left in the game, Coach Oliver Purnell must have told his team, “We missed Lost last night. Let’s go home and watch it on my TiVO.” Al Thornton had just slammed the ball home to tie the game at 66 after thirty-eight minutes of back and forth scoring, and Clemson would not see another decent shot in the game.

When play resumed, Clemson had the ball. KC Rivers gave it up with 54 seconds left on an offensive foul. Trevor Booker got the ball back for the Tigers after blocking a Ryan Reid jumper, and they proceeded to pick up a back court violation with 8 seconds left. On the ensuing play, KC Rivers fouled Al Thornton as he tried to score the game winner. Thornton made the second of his two free throws, and Clemson failed to make the hail mary shot.

Florida State will move on to face the Heels tomorrow at noon while Clemson travels home to catch up on their favorite TV shows. Al Thornton led the Seminoles with 25 points and 11 rebounds, while Trevor Booker led the Tigers with 18 points.

  1. ” Trevor Booker fouled Al Thornton as he tried to score the game winner.”

    If by fouled you mean farted on….Clemson was terrible down the strech, but that was an awful call.

  2. I thought the foul was on Booker, but all the recaps are saying it was KC Rivers.
