CLEMSON, S.C.(AP) -- Jerai Grant tied a career best with 18 points on 8 of 9 shooting as Clemson beat Virginia 72-49 on Saturday.

The Tigers (19-7, 7-5 Atlantic Coast Conference) never trailed in this one, finishing a three-game homestand perfect to state their case for an NCAA bid and move back into the top half of the ACC.

Clemson shot 51.9 percent and made 12 of 13 free throws.

The freefall continues for Virginia (14-11, 5-7), who lost its fourth game in seven days and is 2-6 since first-year coach Tony Bennett opened with three ACC wins in a row.

The Cavaliers shot just 35 percent from the field, were 2 of 13 on 3-pointers and put up at least five airballs. It was the fourth straight game they've shot under 38 percent overall.
