Daum, a senior, was only 19 points away from 3,000 in his career heading into Saturday's game against rival South Dakota at SDSU's Frost Arena in Brookings.
The 6-foot-9 power forward hit the mark with 1 minute, 2 seconds left to play in the second half, draining a floater in traffic that gave the Jackrabbits an 86-85 lead.
South Dakota State went on to win 94-89, and Daum finished with 25 points and seven rebounds.
Both Daum and Clemons rank in the top 10 on the NCAA career scoring list. Daum now sits at 3,006 career points, just two behind Hersey Hawkins.
Clemons is up to 3,074 career points, passing Harry Kelly of Texas Southern, after scoring 41 in Campbell's victory Saturday over Longwood. He's now 76 points behind Doug McDermott for fifth all time.
