      Upset bid over third-ranked Miami falls short for Tigers

      Devin Booker and Clemson could not close out No. 3 Miami Sunday night at Littlejohn Coliseum. The Tigers fell 45-43.
      CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) -- Kenny Kadji scored 12 points, including the go-ahead 3-pointer with 36 seconds left to keep No. 3 Miami perfect in Atlantic Coast Conference play after a 45-43 victory at Clemson on Sunday night. The Hurricanes (21-3, 12-0) finished with their fewest points of the season, and their high-scoring guard duo of Durand Scott and Shane Larkin were a combined 3-of-16 shooting for 10 points. Still, Miami pulled it out on Kadji's wide-open 3. Clemson (13-12, 5-8) had three chances to answer back, but Rod Hall was called for an offensive foul on one trip and, after Trey McKinney Jones made a foul shot, Hall missed a layup and K.J. McDaniels failed on a tip. The Hurricanes hugged each other when the horn sounded, grateful to escape and continue the league's longest undefeated start since Duke went 16-0 in 1998-99.
