Clemson's basketball team slipped in both polls this week, while Jack Leggett's baseball team debuted in the Top 15 of the first preseason poll of the year.

The hardwood Tigers fell to No. 21 in the Associated Press poll, and No. 20 in the Coaches Poll. The dip came after Clemson's loss to Ole Miss in the finals of the San Juan Shootout last week in Puerto Rico.

Meanwhile, the Collegiate Baseball preseason poll recently released has the Tigers at No. 13. Leggett's team finished last season 41-23.
