FSU men’s basketball beaten at home by Clemson

TALLAHASSEE — Chase Hunter scored 14 points and PJ Hall scored 13 as Clemson beat Florida State for the third straight time Saturday, 78-67.

The win snapped a string of four losses in five games for Clemson (13-5, 3-4 Atlantic Coast Conference) and snapped Florida State’s run of five straight wins.

The teams played to a 30-30 draw through the first half.

The Tigers opened the second with a 9-2 run and never trailed the rest of the way.

Florida State got within 39-37 on a 3-pointer by Darin Green Jr. and Taylor Bol Bowen hit the second of two free throws at about the five-minute mark to make it 41-40, but Ian Schieffelin dunked and, after Chase Hunter hit two free throws, scored at the basket to push the Clemson lead back to 47-40.

The Tigers converted 16 of 19 free throws in the second half to help them close out the win.

Clemson shot 51% from the field, hitting 25 of 49, including 7 of 17 from beyond the 3-point arc, and converted 21 of 25 from the free-throw line.

Josh Beadle contributed 12 points off the Tigers’ bench and Joe Girard III had 10 points, 7 rebounds, 4 assists and 2 steals.

Jamir Watkins led Florida State (11-7, 5-2) with 15 points. Green added 13 points and Primo Spears chipped in 12 off the bench.

Clemson plays host to No. 7 Duke on Saturday. Florida State plays at Syracuse on Tuesday.
