Recap: Clemson vs. Miami-Florida

Clemson, SC (Sports Network) - Sometimes the shots just don't go down, but Kenny Kadji and Miami-Florida stuck with it, persevered and remained unbeaten in ACC play.

Kadji's go-ahead 3-pointer with 34.7 seconds to play lifted the third-ranked Hurricanes to a 45-43 win over Clemson.

Miami had just made two triples and Kadji had missed his first five from beyond the arc before his wide-open left wing trey made it 44-43.

The Hurricanes (21-3, 12-0 ACC) finished the contest 3-of-19 from 3-point range.

Rod Hall had a chance to tie it on the Tigers' final possession, but couldn't get his layup to drop and K.J. McDaniels' tip attempt was too strong.

Kadji netted 12 points to lead the Hurricanes, who have won 13 straight tilts since dropping back-to-back games to Arizona and Indiana State.

Jordan Roper tallied 19 points and four steals for Clemson (13-12, 5-8), which has dropped four its last five contests.

The Tigers began a putrid 1-of-17 from the floor, but found themselves down by only six as Miami had struggled to find points itself.

The Hurricanes were 0-of-5 from three before Shane Larkin's right wing triple gave the visitors an 8-2 spread midway through the opening half. Clemson, though, converted its next three field-goal attempts and took a 10-9 edge before Miami responded to take an 18-16 cushion into the break.

The Tigers netted the first seven points of the second period before Miami countered with the next six to put the visitors up 24-23 about five minutes into the second period. It remained a one-possession contest until Roper's layup put Clemson in front, 42-38, with 2:01 to go.

But Rion Brown's three-point play and Kadji's trey, sandwiched around a 1-of-2 effort from the foul line by McDaniels, gave Miami its one-point advantage.

Trey McKinney Jones drew a charge on Hall on Clemson's next trip down the floor and then split a pair with 8.6 ticks on the clock to give Miami a 45-43 spread.

At the other end, Hall drove past Durand Scott and had an open lane to the bucket, but missed his good look at a layup before McDaniels' tip-in didn't go to give Miami its country-leading 10th road win of the campaign. Arizona is second with six victories away from home.
