TLANTA (AP) - K.J. McDaniels scored 14 points and Milton Jennings blocked a potentially tying 3-pointer at the buzzer, preserving Clemson's 56-53 victory over Georgia Tech on Thursday night.

The Tigers (13-11, 5-7 Atlantic Coast Conference) extended their domination of the Yellow Jackets (13-10, 3-8), sweeping the season series and winning their seventh in a row overall.

Georgia Tech rallied from a 12-point deficit in the second half and had a couple of chances to force overtime. Chris Bolden missed badly on a drive with about 10 seconds to go, but the Yellow Jackets got another chance after Jennings made only 1 of 2 free throws. Mfon Udofia took off down the court, looking to get off a 3, and he appeared to have an open look when Daniel Miller delivered a pick to free up his teammate.

But Jennings came up from behind to strip it away, and the Tigers celebrated.
