Clemson Team Preview

The Clemson Tigers come into this game fresh off of their win over New Mexico by a final score of 77-56. Before that win, Clemson lost to Wake Forest and Boston College. PJ Hall leads the Tigers in scoring with 18.7 PPG and 6.5 RPG along with 1.5 APG while Joseph Girard III has 15.4 PPG and 2.8 APG. Chase Hunter has 12.5 PPG with 2.4 RPG and 3 APG to round out the group of double-digit scorers for Clemson up to this point in the year. Ian Schieffelin also has 9.8 PPG with a team-high 9.6 RPG to lead Clemson on the glass this season. As a team, Clemson is averaging 77.4 PPG on 46.8% shooting from the field, 35.4% from three and 79% from the foul line this season.

Baylor Team Preview

The Baylor Bears come into this one looking to add to a 92-67 win over Colgate in their last game. Baylor finished 4th in the Big 12 standings, where Houston was 1st. Ja’Kobe Walter leads the Bears in scoring with 14.7 PPG along with 4.5 RPG while Jalen Bridges has 11.6 PPG with 5.4 RPG. RayJ Dennis has 13.5 PPG with a team-high 6.7 APG to lead the Bears in the assist department as well as logging 3.8 RPG while Langston Love has 11 PPG. Yves Missi has 10.9 PPG with 5.6 RPG to lead the Bears on the glass while Jayden Nunn has 10.8 PPG as well, rounding out the group of double-digit scorers for Baylor up to this point in the year. As a team, Baylor is averaging 81.5 PPG on 48.9% shooting from the field, 39.8% from three and 73.5% from the foul line this season.

Clemson vs. Baylor Prediction

I’m on Baylor here. I just think Baylor’s the better team and while Clemson got by New Mexico despite off nights from Hall and Girard III, you’re not going to get away with that every night and I don’t imagine Baylor leads Clemson get by here. I think the Bears have the edge on both ends of the floor, and I think Baylor gets it done in this one.
