ATLANTA (AP) -Lewis Clinch set a career high with 32 points and last-place Georgia Tech pulled off the first big upset of the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament, beating No. 17 Clemson 86-81 on Thursday.
Clinch made five 3-pointers to carry the Yellow Jackets (12-18), who went 2-14 in the ACC during the regular season - including a pair of losses to the Tigers.
Clemson (23-8) is now 0-for-56 in winning the ACC tournament. The Tigers made it all the way to the championship game a year ago before losing to North Carolina, but they were one-and-done at the Georgia Dome.
Gani Lawal added 20 points and 14 rebounds for the Yellow Jackets, who advanced to meet No. 22 Florida State in the quarterfinals Friday.
Trevor Booker paced Clemson with 17 points.
