March 2, 2008
Morganne Campbell grabbed the offensive board and put up a shot as time expired to give the Lady Tigers a 72-70 victory over Florida State on Saturday night at the Donald L. Tucker Center.
The basket culminated a second-half comeback for Clemson in which it erased a 14-point deficit and shot 47.2-percent from the field. It also gave the Lady Tigers a win in their final regular season game of the year and momentum heading into the upcoming ACC Tournament.
Campbell had stolen a Seminole pass with 1:33 remaining and hit a pair of crucial free throws on the other end to tie the game at 68-68. Shante Williams knocked down a jumper to give Florida State the lead at the one-minute mark, while Christy Brown drove to the basket for a lay-up on Clemson's next possession.
Williams finished with 22 points on her Senior Night and Mara Freshour led all scorers with 23 for the Seminoles (17-12, 7-7 ACC).
