TV: ESPN Full Court
The Clemson Tigers travel to Wake Forest to play the Demon Deacons on Tuesday night.
The Clemson Tigers improved to 17-9, 8-6 ACC after beating Georgia Tech on the road 63-55 on Saturday. On the season, K.J. Daniels leads the Tigers in scoring and rebounding, averaging 17.1 points and 7.2 rebounds per game. Daniels is a highlight waiting to happen on any play and he is a legit playmaker for this Clemson squad. Rod Hall is averaging a second-best 9.2 points per game while averaging a team-high 3.7 assists per game. The Tigers are averaging only 62.5 points per game while shooting only 41.4% from the field as a team this season. Clemson is one of the better rebounding teams in the ACC, but they are terrible at distributing the basketball on the offensive end of the floor. After losing three straight games, Clemson bounced back against the Wolfpack at home on Tuesday and now grabbed another win on Saturday. Clemson will hit the road where they have lost four of their last five games in conference play.

Wake Forest has played awful basketball in conference play, but they have been competitive at home. Clemson is trying to earn a spot in the NCAA tournament and I think they get the job done on Tuesday night. I’m backing the Tigers in this one.
