C.J. Spiller scored a touchdown Saturday in his final game at Death Valley and No. 18 Clemson beat Virginia, 34-21, on the day the Tigers clinched their first trip to the Atlantic Coast Conference title game. The Tigers (8-3, 6-2 ACC) won their sixth straight game but had the Atlantic Division wrapped up as they kicked off, thanks to North Carolina's 31-13 victory against Boston College. Clemson will face Coastal Division winner Georgia Tech in two weeks in Tampa, Fla. Spiller had a 4-yard touchdown run and set the ACC's single-season all-purpose yardage mark, surpassing the 2,059 of Virginia's Thomas Jones in 1999.

Sammy Watkins isn't the only Clemson wide receiver in heavy demand from NFL teams. Clemson junior wide receiver Martavis Bryant and Watkins both worked out for the St. Louis Rams on Friday on campus with coach Jeff Fisher, general manager Les Snead and offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer in attendance. Although the Ravens aren't among Bryant's 22 combined visits and private workouts, a source says they've maintained interest in him throughout the draft process and conducted a meeting with him at the NFL scouting combine.

Welcome back to Morning Shootaround, a regular feature this season the day after Maryland basketball games. While we can't bring you into the Terps' lockerroom after games - reporters haven't been allowed in there since the last couple of years under Gary Williams - we will recap what was said in the press conference afterward by Maryland coach Mark Turgeon and his players. We will give some of our own insight into what transpired on the court during the previous day's game and what the Terps will be working on at practice looking ahead to their next game.

CLEMSON, S.C. - Maryland had its recent spate of close losses prolonged Sunday at Littlejohn Coliseum. With chances to win at the end of regulation, the Terps went into one overtime, then another, before losing to Clemson, 77-73, as their season-long agony continued. The defeat was the sixth in nine games this season decided by four points or fewer, and the third in a stretch of four games that followed two-point defeats to both Duke and Syracuse. Despite taking the lead with the first basket in each overtime, and leading 71-70 on a jumper by sophomore guard Seth Allen with 1:32 left in the second overtime, the Terps couldn't stop the Tigers down the stretch.

It was a game of tipped passes and blocked shots and hard fouls and air balls and - most of all - turnovers. But made baskets? Those were precious and few as Clemson halted Maryland's impressive early run in Atlantic Coast Conference play with a 62-53 win Sunday night that was hardly aesthetically pleasing except for fans of rugged, full-court defense or missed layups. The Terrapins, whose four-game winning streak ended, entered the contest leading the ACC in the standings as well as in assist-to-turnover ratio and shooting percentage - a gaudy .487.

Despite a three-game losing streak and a seemingly never-ending string of depth-sapping injuries - the latest including the team's top offensive and defensive playmakers - Maryland enters the toughest stretch of its 2012 schedule with something it lacked a year ago: cohesion. Maryland (4-5, 2-3 in the Atlantic Coast Conference) was likely not going to beat No. 10 Clemson (8-1, 5-1) in Death Valley Saturday with either freshman wide receiver Stefon Diggs or senior linebacker Demetrius Hartsfield healthy and on the field at Memorial Stadium.

COLLEGE PARK -  One week earlier, the frenzied students at Comcast Center had yelled and stomped and flash-mobbed before finally rushing the court to celebrate a victory over Duke that represents the high point of Maryland's season so far. But on Saturday, the Terps and their fans - with Clemson in town and no Blue Devils to hate - seemed strangely subdued. With his team trailing early and the building's energy at the level of a campus library, Maryland coach Mark Turgeon asked his players to pressure Clemson full-court.

Welcome to a second season of Morning Shootaround. We will follow the Terps throughout the 2013-14 season, but this year in this space we will provide a look ahead rather than looking back. We will try to analyze Maryland's strengths and weaknesses, as well as those of its upcoming opponent. We also hope to provide quotes and anecdotes from practices to give some idea of what Mark Turgeon and his team are doing. Here are a few things to look for as the Terps get ready to play at Clemson Sunday.

By the time Devin Gray finished his junior year at Clemson, he was considered one of the best basketball players in the Atlantic Coast Conference. A 6-foot-6, 230-pound forward, Gray had a game that combined power and finesse, grit and grace. His left-handed shot was smooth and his baseline drives nearly unstoppable. “[Former Clemson star] Dale Davis and I used to say he had the best baseline game we had ever seen,” recalled James “Chubby” Wells, who played at Clemson in the late 1970s and would become Gray's agent and mentor.

COLLEGE PARK - The No. 10 Maryland women's basketball team never gave Clemson a chance Sunday afternoon, leaning on senior forward Alyssa Thomas, considerable bench contributions and multiple double-digit runs to pull away for a 95-43 victory in front of 6,471 at Comcast Center. Thomas finished with a game-high 22 points on 10-for-16 shooting, seven rebounds and four assists without a turnover. Her performance helped push the Terps ' winning streak to three games in advance of a demanding stretch that will go a long way toward determining seeding in the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament in less than a month.

McDonogh junior Danielle Edwards wasn't in a rush to decide where to play college basketball, but the players and coaches at Clemson changed her mind. "I didn't really want to make my decision quite yet, but it came down to Dayton and Clemson, and I just knew that the environment when I visited was just so overwhelming," Edwards said. "I loved it. The team was great, the coaches, they were very welcoming and heartwarming. "I didn't want to make my decision ... my whole future thing kind of scares me. But I knew in my heart that it was where I wanted to be. " The 5-foot-6 point guard verbally commited to play basketball for the Tigers on Sunday, choosing Clemson over N.C. State, Boston College, Fordham, George Washington and others.

Michael Sauers (Archbishop Curley) scored with just 13 seconds left in the first overtime period to lift the top-seeded and fourth-ranked Maryland men's soccer team (12-3-5) to a 1-0 victory over Clemson (11-6-2) in the Atlantic Coast Conference soccer semifinals Friday night in Boyds. The winning score followed a corner kick by Tsubasa Endoh  that players from both sides attempted the control. The ball caromed off the foot of Patrick Mullins, and Sauers punched his third career goal into the right side of the net to give Maryland the win. “Mikey Ambrose had a back-post cross off a clear and went to Dan Metzger, who brought it down nicely.

COLLEGE PARK - Injury-depleted, overmatched Maryland donned its bright red, “Pride 2.0” uniforms for its homecoming game Saturday, then tried to preserve some vestige of that same pride against No. 9 Clemson. Aided by three takeaways, Maryland remained within a touchdown of the heavily favored Tigers until a critical fourth-quarter miscue. Clemson pulled away for a 40-27 victory in front of an announced 48,134, the largest home crowd of the season, on a sunny, chilly day at Byrd Stadium.

The Orlando Magic organization is supposed to be run like any other professional sports franchise. The GM makes decisions regarding personnel. He gives the team assembled to a coach, who does his best to put a winning product out on the court. The owner pays for it all. But the Magic aren't like most other franchises, because they have a superstar who thinks he is bigger than the game.  Dwight Howard has been the coach, general manager and star player in Orlando for about two years now . He has been holding the entire organization hostage as it tries to appease a flip-flopping All-World center who can't seem to make up his mind. This is just another chapter in a growing narrative of selfish, me-first NBA players who just refuse to play with the cards they're dealt.

As midnight approached, C.J. Brown sat slumped in a chair inside Maryland's football complex after Maryland's 56-45 loss to Clemson on Saturday. A reporter asked Brown how he felt. "I'm tired," Maryland's new starting quarterback replied. And why not? Brown had just rushed for 162 yards. It was easily the most by a quarterback in school history, besting the 139 yards by Dennis O'Hara against Wake Forest in 1969. Brown had rushed for 124 yards a week earlier in a loss to Georgia Tech.

All was not lost for the Maryland football team, not on a night when it received its first commitment for the Class of 2015. Hours after the Terps fell to No. 9 Clemson, 40-27, Linganore offensive lineman E.J. Donahue announced Saturday night on Twitter that he had orally committed to the Terps: "I will be staying home and playing for my home state. I'm committing to University of Maryland!!! #GoTerps " At a listed 6 feet 5, 330 pounds, Donahue is a big get. There's been something of a bumper crop locally for offensive linemen, with Class of 2014 commits Jared Cohen, Derwin Gray, Larry Mazyck and targets Damian Prince and Brock Ruble all hailing from the DMV, and Donahue, a 247sports.com four-star prospect, seems to fit that mold.

COLLEGE PARK - Cole Farrand knows how Maryland's defense is supposed to look. He has an image in his mind as a perpetual reminder. The junior said he can still visualize fellow linebacker L.A. Goree "ripping the ball" from the grasp of a West Virginia ball carrier, one of six takeaways forced by the Terps in their 37-0 victory at M&T Bank Stadium. That was five weeks ago, but it feels like the distant past for the Terps (5-2, 1-2 Atlantic Coast Conference), who have lost two out of three heading into Saturday's homecoming game against Clemson (6-1, 4-1 ACC)
