Clemson (15-5, 9-5 ACC) wraps its ACC road slate Wednesday at Syracuse (14-8, 8-7) in a makeup matchup for an earlier postponed game.

Tipoff in the Carrier Dome is set for 5:01 p.m. ET. Wes Durham and Chris Spatola will call the broadcast for ACCN. Don Munson and Tim Bourret will broadcast the game on the Clemson Tigers Network.

Tigers guard Al-Amir Dawes turned in a season-high 19 points on 7-of-9 shooting in a 66-58 win over Miami Saturday. Dawes was perfect from three-point range (4-for-4).

Syracuse topped UNC 72-70 on Monday in the Carrier Dome and are 12-1 at home this season. The Orange rank 59th on KenPom with the 32nd-best offense and 94th-best defense, while Clemson is 38th overall a top-15 defense (11) and offense rated just into the triple-digits (108).

Clemson-Syracuse series notes

• Clemson leads the all-time series with Syracuse 7-4, including winning the last three matchups in the series.

• The Tigers took the first meeting of the season on Feb. 6, by a 78-61 final score. The 17-point margin of victory is the largest for either team in series history.

• The lone contest between the Tigers and Orange in the 2019-20 season came down to the final seconds. Khavon Moore grabbed a live ball rebound and pushed the ball up court, crossing over near the free throw line and finding a back-cutting Clyde Trapp who scored the game-winning basket in a 71-70 win. Trapp scored a career-high 17 points and grabbed a then-career-high nine rebounds.
