CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) — Andre Young scored 12 points, including the go-ahead 3-pointer with 11.5 seconds left, to help Clemson beat North Carolina State 72-69 in overtime on Saturday.

Young is the Atlantic Coast Conference's fourth best three-point shooter, but did not have a basket from behind the arc until he made a straightaway three to tie the game at 69-all with 1:13 left in overtime. Young's next shot was even better, a catch-and-shoot three from the left corner to put the Tigers (15-13, 7-7 ACC) out front to stay.

C.J. Leslie was off the mark on a 3-point try on North Carolina State's attempt to force a second overtime on the final possession. Lorenzo Brown and Leslie had 18 points each to lead the Wolfpack (18-11, 7-7), who lost their fourth straight.
