The Clemson Tigers improved to 14-6, 5-3 ACC after beating Florida State 53-49 on Saturday. On the season, K.J. McDaniels is averaging a team-high 16.7 points per game and 7.1 rebounds per contest. Rod Hall is averaging 9.2 points per game and team-high 3.7 assists per game. The Tigers are averaging 64 points per game while shooting 42.2% from the field as a team this season. Clemson is a good rebounding team, averaging 37.7 boards per game. The Tigers bounced back Saturday after two straight loses in conference play. Clemson will now come back home after three straight road games; the Tigers have only lost one game at home this season.
Georgia Tech has been up and down all season and this would be a big win for them on Tuesday if they could pull it off. However, Clemson is solid at home and they have a tough defense that many teams have struggled against. I think the Tigers win this game by double-digits.
