CLEMSON, S.C. - Kenny Kadji scored 12 points, including the go-ahead 3-pointer with 36 seconds left to keep No. 3 Miami perfect in Atlantic Coast Conference play after a 45-43 victory over Clemson on Sunday night.
The Hurricanes (21-3, 12-0) finished with their fewest points of the season, but still pulled out their 13th straight victory on Kadji's wide-open 3.
Clemson (13-12, 5-8) had three chances to answer, but Rod Hall was called for an offensive foul on one trip and after Trey McKinney Jones made a foul shot, Hall missed a layup and K.J. McDaniels failed on a tip.
