Twitter reacts: Clemson's 2017-18 campaign wraps in Sweet 16
|Friday, March 23, 2018, 10:23 PM-|
Clemson rallied from down as much as 20 points in the second half to push the Kansas Jayhawks to the wire in an 80-76 loss Friday night in Omaha.
The Tigers finished their surprising run from being picked 13th in the ACC preseason to a Sweet 16 appearance at 25-10 overall. Senior Gabe DeVoe went out in-style with a career-high 31 points, as one in a unit drawing praise on social media Friday after their fight to the finish to wrap the 2017-18 campaign.

Gabe DeVoe sets a Clemson record for points in an NCAA Tournament game with 31. (Dale Davis prev. had 26 vs. LaSalle in 1990). He is also the first Clemson player to post three consecutive 20-point games in an NCAA Tournament.#BobbyBuckets#ClemsonGRIT pic.twitter.com/zKkuEQHSNj— Clemson Men's Basketball (@ClemsonMBB) March 24, 2018

Plenty for the Clemson Tigers to hold their heads high about- that was one heck of a comeback in Omaha. Here is Sports4 video of their final walk off the court, followed off by Magic Johnson. pic.twitter.com/Vh4Eohk2jt— Scott Eisberg (@SEisbergWCIV) March 24, 2018
Unbelievably proud of @GabeDeVoe10 ! You will be severely missed brother.— Eric Mac Lain (@Mr_Clemson) March 24, 2018
Quite a final game for Gabe DeVoe with 31 points. Most points by Clemson player in his final game as a Tiger since Larry Nance had 34 vs. Temple in Nit game on March 12 1981— Tim Bourret (@TimBourret) March 24, 2018
DeVoe first Clemson guard with at least 30 points and 9 rebounds in same game since Will Solomon had 43 and 9 vs. Virginia on 1 15 2000.— Tim Bourret (@TimBourret) March 24, 2018
