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.

Trevor Booker paced Clemson with 17 points.
