GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) — Demontez Stitt scored 20 points to lead Clemson past Boston College 70-47 on Friday in the quarterfinals of the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament.

Jerai Grant added 12 points and Milton Jennings had 10 for the fourth-seeded Tigers (21-10). They shot 45 percent on 23-of-51 shooting and clamped down on one of the ACC’s best 3-point shooting teams to win a game both teams desperately needed to polish their NCAA tournament profiles and possibly move themselves off the bubble.
