Sunday was Senior Day and the Tigers didn’t disappoint the home crowd while defeating the Seminoles by 13, 74-61.
Amari Bradford scored 20 points to lead Clemson, while Brie Perpignan (14), Ruby Whitehorn (13) and Daish Bradford (11) all scored in double figures.
Bradford also led the Tigers with 7 rebounds, while Makayla Elmore chipped in 6 and Hannah Hank added 5.
Much like their male counterparts on Saturday, the Tigers shot the ball well, hitting 45.9% from the field, including 45% on 20 three-point attempts.
Despite trailing for the majority of the first quarter Clemson led by 3 at the end of the period and extended that lead to 8 at the half.
Clemson increased the lead to 10 headed into the fourth quarter and withstood a late Florida State rally that pulled the Seminoles within 2 points at 60-59 with 7:21 left before a Bradford 3, followed by a Whitehorn three, gave the Tigers some room and set them on the way for the win and improving their record to 16-14 and 7-11 in ACC play.
Clemson Women’s Basketball will be the 10th seed in the ACC Tournament
The Tigers settled into 10th place in the ACC and will face 15th seed Pittsburgh on March 1st at a time to be determined in the first round of the ACC Tournament.
Pittsburgh is 10-19 overall and 3-15 in the ACC and Clemson defeated the Panthers 72-57 on January 15th in Pittsburgh.
For Clemson, no matter the outcome in Greensboro, the season has shown a vast improvement over last season’s 10-21 overall record and 3-15 mark in the ACC.
