Clemson men's basketball (9-5, 1-2 ACC) looks to bounce back on the road at NC State (8-7, 1-3) Saturday.

Tipoff in PNC Arena is set for 12:04 p.m. ET. Tom Werme and Mike Gminski will call the broadcast for RSN. Tim Bourret and Jim Davis will broadcast the game on the Clemson Athletic Network.

The Tigers had a four-game winning streak snapped on Tuesday at home in a 75-65 loss to Virginia, which came after a layoff going back to Dec. 22 due to a COVID postponement on Duke's part.
