QUICK FACTS

Clemson and Boston College meet for the second time this season. The Eagles were victorious in the first meeting on Feb. 2 in Chestnut Hill, a 75-68 win for Boston College. The Eagles shot .578 for that contest, the highest percentage allowed by the Tigers all season.

Clemson leads the all-time series, 10-6, and is undefeated in five tries against BC at Littlejohn Coliseum. The Eagles last visited in Brad Brownell's first season, 2010-11, and Clemson won by a score of 77-69.

The Tigers are looking for a fifth ACC home win this season. It would give Clemson a winning record at Littlejohn Coliseum against ACC teams for a sixth consecutive season.

After a streak of 124 consecutive games with at least one blocked shot, Clemson has not recorded one in either of its last two games. That is the first time that has happened since the 2002-03 season.
