    GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Nikki Dixon scored 22 points and grabbed a career-high 12 rebounds as thirteenth-seeded Clemson beat No. 12 seed Virginia Tech 69-56 Wednesday in the first game of the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament.

    It was Clemson's first conference tournament win since 2009 and it avenged a 74-48 defeat to Virginia Tech last Thursday.

    Nyliah Jamison-Myers scored a career-best 19 points for Clemson (13-18). It was Dixon's ninth 20-plus point game of the season and she recorded a double-double in the first half alone. Dixon hit 12 of 15 free throws and the Tigers made 21 of 28 as a team.

    Senior Uju Ugoka had 20 points and 10 rebounds for Virginia Tech (14-16). It was her 16th double-double of the year.

    Virginia Tech got within 55-46 with 6:46 left, but Dixon scored four consecutive points to put the Tigers up by double-digits for good.

    Clemson plays No. 5 Syracuse on Thursday.
