Clemson’s Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde routine between its home and away games continued Saturday with a 75-68 loss at Boston College. The Tigers dug a 20 point hole, then rallied to within one late, but were unable to pull ahead as they lost their fourth straight conference road game. They are winless in road ACC games this season.
Senior forward Devin Booker reached the 1,000 career point milestone with a 20 point day. 12 of the 20 came on free throws. Milton Jennings scored 13 and Jordan Roper added 11. Adonis Flier finished with 10 points.
The loss drops the Tigers to 12-9 overall and 4-5 in the ACC. BC is 10-11 and 2-6 in conference play. Clemson will get another chance at a road win Thursday when they play at Virginia. The Tigers beat the Hoos earlier this season, 59-44. Of course that game was at Littlejohn Coliseum and we all know Clemson is a different team there.
