CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) -- K.J. McDaniels scored 15 points, including two foul shots with 16 seconds left, as Clemson held on to defeat Georgia Tech 63-60 on Tuesday night, its sixth straight victory over the Yellow Jackets.

The Tigers (12-8, 4-4 Atlantic Coast Conference) held an 11-point lead early in the second half, but the Yellow Jackets (11-8, 1-6) gradually chipped away. When Mfon Udofia made a free throw with 17.2 seconds left, Clemson's lead had shrunk to 61-60.

That's when McDaniels grabbed the inbounds pass, got fouled by Udofia and confidently made both ends of the 1-and-1 attempts. The Yellow Jackets had a chance to tie, but Brandon Reed's 3-point attempt from left of the basket was off the mark and Clemson won for the fourth time in its last six games this season.

Daniel Miller had 16 points and Kammeon Holsey 14 to lead Georgia Tech.
