GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) - Damarcus Harrison scored six of his 12 points in the final minute of overtime to help Clemson beat Georgia Tech 69-65 in the second round of the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament Thursday night.

All-ACC guard K.J. McDaniels scored 18 points on 4-of-15 shooting to help the sixth-seeded Tigers (20-11) earn their second ACC tournament victory since 2008.

Clemson will play No. 7 Duke (24-7), the tournament's third seed, on Friday night in the quarterfinals.

Trae Golden scored 23 points and Robert Carter Jr. added 13 points for the 11th-seeded Yellow Jackets (16-17).

Daniel Miller sent Georgia Tech to overtime for a second-straight night by hitting a fadeaway jumper that tied it at 55 with 0.9 seconds left in regulation.

Harrison put Clemson ahead to stay when his full-court layup with 44.1 seconds left in OT made it 63-62.
