Demontez Stitt scored a game-high 20 points in Saturday’s 79-77 loss to Maryland at the Comcast Center.

BOX SCORE: Maryland 79 Clemson 77

The senior’s half-court desperation runner as time expired nearly gave first-year coach Brad Brownell his first ACC road win at Clemson.

Maryland-native Jerai Grant scored 15 points and grabbed seven rebounds, bouncing back from a 1-of-12 shooting performance against North Carolina.

Devin Booker recorded a double-double with 11 points and 11 rebounds.

Andre Young, who hit 4-of-11 3-pointers, scored 14.

Bryan Narcisse, who started in place of Tanner Smith, scored four points.

Milton Jennings and Cory Stanton each chipped in with six points off the bench.

DeAndre Hopkins appeared off the bench for the first significant minutes of his basketball career with a few minutes on the floor at the end of the first half.

Clemson shot 47percent from the field and 36 percent from behind the arc.

Maryland hit at a 50 and 57 percent clip.

The Tigers won the battle on the glass 35-30.

After leading by five, Clemson trailed by much as 13 in the first half.

Clemson dropped to 13-6 (2-3 ACC). Maryland improved to 12-7 (2-3 ACC). The loss is the Tigers' second in a row after winning eight straight.
