• NC State holds the all-time lead in the series 97-48, but Clemson has held the upper hand in recent years. The Tigers have won two of the last three, and seven of the last nine meetings overall against the Wolfpack.
• Clemson has won two straight games in the ACC after an 0-2 start. The Tigers have held both of their last two opponents, Virginia and Wake Forest, to the same point total (44).
• NC State enters the game ranked 14th in the AP poll and 15th by the coaches, but the Wolfpack lost in their most recent game at Maryland on an Alex Len tip-in with 0.9 seconds left. NC State knocked off previously unbeaten and No. 1 ranked Duke in its most recent home game.
• Clemson's consecutive games holding ACC opponents to 45 points or less was a first in school history since the league formed in 1953.
• The Tigers held Wake Forest to 24.6 percent shooting, the second best field goal percentage defense by Clemson against an ACC school since Jan. 4, 1964, when the Tigers held the Demon Deacons to 20 percent on field goals.
