AUBURN, Ala. (AP) - Chris Denson scored 19 points and Auburn hit 4 of 6 free throws over the final 43 seconds to preserve a 66-64 win over Clemson Thursday night.

Denson hit 1 of 2 free throws with 43 seconds left to give Auburn (5-3) a 63-62 lead. Then Asauhn Dixon-Tatum blocked Rod Hall's jumper. Tahj Shamsid-Deen grabbed the rebound and he and KT Harrell pushed the ball across midcourt and milked 10 seconds off the clock before Clemson managed to foul. Harrell hit both free throws with 14 seconds left.

Clemson (8-3) called timeout with 4.5 seconds left but Auburn fouled Jordan Roper before he could get a shot off. He missed both foul shots, and the ball went out of bounds to Clemson, and Landry Nnoka hit a quick layup off an inbounds pass.

Allen Payne hit one of two free throws with 1 second left.
