Buying clams tonight to cook tomorrow

I'm thinking of buying some littlenecks tonight to make linguine with clams tomorrow for dinner. My plan is to rinse and scrub them tonight and then store them in the fridge overnight and during the day tomorrow on top of a bowl of ice and with a wet towel over them. Any thoughts about whether this method will kill the clams or sufficiently rid them of grit?
