TALLAHASSEE -

Trevor Booker scored 19 points and grabbed 11 rebounds Sunday as Clemson rebounded from an early 13-point deficit to defeat Florida State 53-50, sweeping its season series with the Seminoles.

Booker hit four straight free throws in the final 11 seconds and blocked a 3-point shot by the Seminoles' Deividas Dulkys with 5 seconds left that could have tied it.

But it was the outside sniping of sophomore guard Andre Young, that made the difference. His 3-point basket gave the Tigers a 49-47 lead with 30 seconds left.

Young finished with 12 points for Clemson (20-8, 8-6 ACC), which won despite shooting just 33.3 percent (17 of 51).

Florida State (20-8, 8-6) didn't have a player in double figures. Ryan Reid, Derwin Kitchen and Michael Snaer each had eight points.

Florida State had a chance to tie the game with 14 seconds left, but Solomon Alabi missed a free throw after making his first to get the Seminoles with 49-48, setting up Booker's game-clinching free throws.
