Illinois Stuns Clemson with Historic Comeback
CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) -- Mike Tisdale hit the go-ahead jumper with 41 seconds left then blocked David Potter's driving shot on No. 18 Clemson's next possession as Illinois rallied from 23 points down for a 76-74 victory Wednesday night.

The Illini (5-2) looked finished, down 51-28 early in the second half and with leading scorer Demetri McCamey saddled with three fouls and two points.

But Illinois finally got going with a 35-10 run to move in front in the school's biggest comeback ever.

Demontez Stitt missed a driving shot at the buzzer for Clemson (6-2).

Illinois broke a three-game losing streak in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge, which was won by the Big Ten 6-5.
