CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- Trevor Booker scored 18 points, Cliff
Hammonds added 17 and Clemson is going to a place it hasn't seen in
a very long time. The Tigers stunned seventh-ranked Duke 78-74 in the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament semifinals to get to the championship game for the first time in 1962 and take a shot at winning its first-ever ACC crown.

Third-seeded Clemson had lost 22 straight games to the Blue
Devils. This time, The Tigers pulled away in the second half to
spoil the highly anticipated North Carolina-Duke rematch in the
championship. Instead, it's Clemson which gets a third game with
the Tar Heels.

During the regular season, Clemson lost an overtime game to
North Carolina at home, then traveled to Chapel Hill and lost a
double-overtime game.
