CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) -- Ian Miller scored 15 points and Aaron Thomas and Devin Bookert had 10 apiece as Florida State held Clemson to its fewest points this season in a 56-41 victory Thursday night.
The Tigers (10-4, 1-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) came in as the country's top defense in points allowed, but it was the Seminoles (10-4, 1-1) who turned up the pressure to win their fifth straight game in the series.
Clemson's in-your-face defense seemed to rattle Florida State early as the Seminoles' didn't score the first 4 minutes. Then they went on a 13-2 run to gain a lead that they gradually increased to 16 points in the second half.
The Tigers got within 50-41 in the final 4 minutes, but Baron Bojanovsky broke free for a dunk. Clemson trailed by double digits the rest of the way.
K.J. McDaniels led Clemson with 14 points.
