McDaniels' 30 leads Clemson to 78-66 NIT win

CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) Clemson's K.J. McDaniels was ready for the postseason, even it wasn't the tournament he had hoped for last Sunday.

McDaniels matched his career high with 30 points and the Tigers put aside their disappointment at missing the NCAAs to win their 10th straight NIT game at home with a 78-66 win over Sun Belt Conference champs Georgia State.

The Tigers, like long-shot bubble teams around the country, watched the NCAA brackets announced last weekend and prayed they'd make the field of 68. When they didn't, McDaniels says Clemson's players quickly refocused and set their sights on advancing as far as they could in the NIT.
