Clemson looks to snap streak versus BC Saturday

Clemson (15-11, 5-8 ACC) looks to snap a three-game losing streak at home on Saturday versus Boston College (13-12, 4-9).

The Tigers and Eagles will tip at noon on RSN (Fox Sports South locally).

Clemson enters Saturday in the 'first four out' of the NCAA Tournament field according to ESPN.

The Eagles had a two-game winning streak snapped on Wednesday with an 89-80 overtime loss at NC State.

Heavy rain conditions in Clemson this week have affected gameday parking operations for this weekend's home athletics events. Portions of grass area lots near the McFadden and Jervey buildings, Jervey Meadows and East Beach will be closed and fans will need to find spots in paved parking lots. All normal basketball placard parking as well as baseball ADA parking will be held beginning at 9 a.m.
