Smith's buzzer beater lifts Tigers over Deacons

Josh Smith tipped in Rod Hall's miss as time expired and Clemson escaped with a 59-57 win over Wake Forest in Littlejohn Coliseum Saturday afternoon.

Danny Manning brings dangerous Wake Forest to town
Wake Forest is just 1-5 in the ACC and 9-10 overall, but the Demon Deacons are playing fast and loose under head coach Danny Manning. What have the Tigers worked on this week? What does Brownell say about about the Demon Deacons? Photo by Rob Kinnan / USATODAY

Players only meeting fuels win over Syracuse
Following a disappointing second half in a loss at Virginia last week, Clemson's players had a meeting to clear the air and set goals for the rest of the season. The meeting paid off in the win over the Orange Saturday. Photo by Joshua S. Kelly / USATODAY

Orange Crushed
A large number of Syracuse fans showed up at Clemson’s Littlejohn Coliseum Saturday, hoping to see the Orange start of the conference schedule with a perfect 5-0 record and notch an eighth consecutive win.

Fresh off of a rugged three game road stretch and a 1-3 start to the ACC schedule, head coach Brad Brownell isn’t questioning his team’s toughness or effort. What’s lacking, he says, is execution and that execution will be needed Saturday when the Tigers host Syracuse at Littlejohn Coliseum.

Can Clemson pull off the upset at No. 2 Virginia?
On the heels of the Tigers first ACC win and road win against the Pitt Panthers, the season doesn’t get any easier as Clemson (9-6 overall, 1-2 ACC) travels to Charlottesville for a Tuesday night tilt with Virginia (15-0, 3-0 ACC). Can the Tigers match up with the defensive-minded Cavs?
