TIGER TRACKS

• Clemson enters Saturday’s tilt on a three-game skid, with all three games decided by seven points or less. The Tigers fell 64-57 against No. 4 Virginia last time out.

• A win Saturday would be the Tigers’ third in an ACC road game this season, which would be a third straight season with three or more. That has not happened since 2006-07 through 2008-09.

• As a team, the Tigers have 219 three-point goals this season, most since the 2008-09 season and eighth-most in Clemson history.

• Jaron Blossomgame is coming off his third 30-point game of the season, most by a Tiger since Will Solomon in 2000-01.

• Blossomgame’s 31 points against Virginia were the most by any player against the Cavaliers all season.

• Landry Nnoko needs one blocked shot to pass Dale Davis for fifth in Clemson’s career record book. The two are tied with 210 apiece.

• Gabe DeVoe is coming off a career-high six assists against Virginia.
