Clemson Team Preview

The Clemson Tigers come into this one looking to rebound from a 93-90 double OT loss to Georgia Tech last time out. PJ Hall leads the Tigers in scoring with 20.1 PPG and 7.1 RPG along with 1.7 APG while Joseph Girard III has 15.2 PPG with a team-high 3.4 APG to lead the Tigers in the assist department. Chase Hunter has 11.7 PPG with 2.5 RPG and 2.9 APG to round out the group of double-digit scorers for Clemson up to this point in the year.

As a team, Clemson is averaging 80.9 PPG on 48% shooting from the field, 35.8% from three and 76.5% from the foul line this season.

Florida State Team Preview

The Florida State Seminoles come into this one looking to build on a five-game win streak after an 84-75 win over Miami last time out. Jamir Watkins leads the Seminoles across the board with 13.1 PPG, 5.9 RPG and 3.2 APG while Darin Green Jr. also has 12.3 PPG with 3.1 RPG. Primo Spears has 11.3 PPG in 9 games to cap off the trio of double-digit scorers for FSU up to this point in the year. Cam Corhen has 9 PPG with 3.4 RPG and Baba Miller has 7.9 PPG and 5.4 RPG as well on the year.

Clemson vs. Florida State Prediction

I’m on Clemson here. I think the Tigers are in a must-win situation with Duke on deck after this game and a tough run of form has really put this team behind the 8-ball. Florida State’s solid and held a ton of value against Miami, but I don’t see them taking care of business here. Give me Clemson in this one.
