Clemson basketball faces PC on Tuesday

• Clemson looks to bounce back less than 48 hours after a tough one-point loss to Alabama. The Crimson Tide stole an inbounds pass and dunked the go-ahead basket with 25 seconds left Sunday.

• The Tigers last met Presbyterian College in the 2012-13 season. Clemson has won seven straight in the series, all since 1972-73.

• PC is one of Clemson’s oldest rivals, as the series dates to 1915-16, the fourth season in Tiger men’s basketball history.

SERIES HISTORY

CU Series W-L record: Clemson leads 56-18-1

TIGER TRACKS

• Presbyterian assistant coach Cassius Bosket was a manager for the Tigers from 2009-13.

• Clemson’s defense has held its last two opponents, Wofford and Alabama, to 51 points apiece. The two teams combined to shoot just 37-110 (33.6 percent) against the Tigers’ improving defense.

• The Tigers are coming off a season-high 10 blocks against Alabama, four by center Landry Nnoko. He also led Clemson in scoring for the first time this season with 15 points.

• Clemson was out-rebounded by 14 in the game against Alabama, the program’s most lopsided deficit on the boards since the ACC opener last season against North Carolina.

Avry Holmes continued his hot shooting with a 2-4 performance outside the arc Sunday; he now has multiple three-point goals in six straight games and is 16-31 over that stretch (.516).
