Louisville's Mitchell drains buzzer-beating three at half

Midway through the first half of their matchup with No. 12 Louisville, Clemson looked poised to hand the Cardinals their fourth loss of the year.

Just over seven minutes into the game, Clemson’s Jaron Blossomgame drained a three-pointer to push the Tigers’ lead to 8 points. Four minutes later, a Gabe DeVoe layup put Clemson ahead 21-12.

Playing without starting point guard Quentin Snider — who is averaging 12 points and four assists in 30.2 minutes per game this year — Louisville went on a 15-3 run to capture the lead. The Tigers would tie the game up a couple times, but the Cardinals would finish the half on a 29-10 tear.

Mitchell leads all scorers with 18 points at the half.
