Clemson is playing with a lot of confidence since ACC play

The latest AP Top 25 Basketball poll was released on Monday afternoon and Clemson received the second most votes (53) outside of the Top 25.

The last time Clemson was ranked in the AP Poll was 1/18/2010 and the last time the school was ranked by any basketball poll was 1/25/2010 (#21, USA today) therefore this is the closest the team has been ranked near the Top 25 in the Brad Brownell era.

The Clemson basketball team has big-time victories over #15 Miami, #17 Louisville and #20 Duke with losses to #2 North Carolina and #24 South Carolina.

The Tigers defeated three ranked opponents in a row for the first time in school history. Clemson was also the 1st ACC basketball team to beat an AP Top 25 team in three consecutive games since Wake Forest did it the week of Feb. 15-22, 2003 according to the Clemson SID.

Clemson will face #13 Virginia (13-4) on the road on Tuesday, 1/19 at 8 pm on the ACC Network and then have a home game with Pittsburgh on Wednesday, 1/27 at 7 pm on RSN.
