scored a then career-high of 21 points and made 5-of-8 from three-point range, while adding 11 rebounds for his first 20 & 10 game of the 2012-13 season.
• Clemson shot 77 percent in the second half of the game against Virginia on Jan. 12, the second-best shooting percentage in a half in 86 games under Head Coach Brad Brownell. The only higher percentage was .850 in 2010-11 at home against Georgia Tech in the second half.
• Clemson will attempt to make it a home-and-home sweep of Virginia in the regular season, a feat the program has not accomplished since the 2002-03 season under Larry Shyatt.
• Virginia has won the last two over Clemson in Charlottesville by a combined six points. Clemson lost 49-47 in Brownell's first season despite trailing by 16 at halftime, and 65-61 last season after leading by four at the break.
• Thursday's game will mark the five-year anniversary to the day of Clemson's lone win at John Paul Jones Arena. On Feb. 7, 2008, Clemson made 16-of-26 from three-point range and defeated UVA by a score of 82-51. The 31-point margin of victory is Clemson's largest in an ACC road win.
• The Tigers are 4-5 in the ACC and fell short in their last outing at Boston College, 75-68. BC shot 57.8 percent, the highest any Tiger opponent has shot from the field this season.
