Young kept the Tigers in it throughout the period. He scored the first five points and added a second 3-pointer that put Clemson out front, 14-13.
Young had the chance to send Clemson into the break ahead, but he made just one of three free throws after getting fouled behind the arc. Young had a similar situation in the Tigers previous game at Littlejohn Coliseum, having three foul shots with 10 seconds left that would've tied things against Maryland. Then, too, Young made just one and Clemson lost 64-62.
Clemson offered discounted two-for ticket packages that drew a sellout crowd to Littlejohn. Then at halftime, one of the school's Rally Cat dancers, Nicole, said 'Yes" to a marriage proposal from her boyfriend, Tad, to the cheers of all attending.
Booker hopes there's Clemson cheering and celebrating at the Dean Dome on Saturday. He, like his brother, Trevor, and every other Tigers player past and present, wants to see that streak end.
"I think we can do it," Devin Booker said. "We're young, but our game is getting better."
