Can the Tigers upset Duke tomorrow?

[4]
Jan 24, 2022, 8:27 AM

their starting guard Keels is still hurt and didn't play in win over Syracuse Saturday. How well the Tigers shoot 3s will be a big factor. Hopefully Tyson is back close to 100 percent will also be a factor. Defense needs to continue to play well. Last season they got blown out with no fans in Cameron. How much better will they play with all the Crazies back?

Go Tigers!

I think they can make it a game possibly, but nah, I see us losing by 10.

this link says that Duke struggles against 3...

so maybe if the Tigers get hot they have a chance. Duke has won 10 straight at home vs Clemson. I thought it was more than that?

The crowd is all muzzled, so may not be much of a factor.***

gotta shoot 45+ % from 3 and make the few ft's we get...

I do think we can compete with them. Dawes and Honor have to protect the ball. And we have to find a way to rebound. Their size may give us trouble

I think hall gets 2 fouls in first 5 minutes and game over by halftime essentially. We will make a run in 2nd half, then end up losing by 15-20.....

2011 lost 70-59
2013 lost 68-40
2015 lost 78-56
2016 lost 64-62
2019 lost 87-68
2021 lost 79-53

looks like only twice really competitive especially in 2016.

Last two times with pretty good teams got blown out.

Hmm, pretty depressing, however never give up

Yeah, on the road with any opponent is not going to be good. Heck, except last year, looking at a "good" Duke team they only drop one home game per season - yikes. So nearly every team will have a similar record going back 10 years or so. Heck, they were ranked 1st, 4th, 11th, 4th,and 1st, and 4th. (I think I got the years right). I think last year was the first time since 2011 that they lost multiple games at home. Heck only the most elite teams can win consistently on the road and - even duke falters when traveling.

Since that same time, we are 3-2 at home with them,

12 #8 73–66 Duke
14 #16 59–72 Clemson
16 #9 63–68 Clemson
18 #12 66–57 Duke (that one hurt, we were ranked 11th)
20 #3 72–79 Clemson

But then on you point, we have a chance. However, they already dropped one at home to a surprisingly good miami team.

I actually attended that 2013 game...


Jan 24, 2022, 11:40 AM

where Clemson scored just 10 (that right...TEN !!!!!) first half points. That was the fewest by a Clemson team since scoring 9 against Wake Forest in 2001.

Clemson's shooting percentage was something like 12% in the first half and 28% for the entire game.

Class of ‘71. Went through “rat season” and glad I did.

If we can lose to BC at home then certainly Duke could lose to us at home. Isn't that how the Brown L Wheel of Destiny works?

Brad usually does not do well on the road. In my opinion, he does not supply the backbone his players need to see to have the confidence they need on the road. Usually translates into poor shooting. However I’m hoping we defeat rat face in his own barn. We owe him one for buying off Zion.

It'd be great to see Brad pull out a personal side around that and show some animation and fire in this one. Those kids feed on that kinda thing.

We probably have 2 chances...slim and none!! :)***


Jan 24, 2022, 9:13 PM

But seriously...we'll need to shoot the three like we did Saturday, to have a chance.
