• Clemson and LSU engage in a battle of ACC & SEC Tigers on Monday in the consolation side of the Paradise Jam.
• This is the first matchup between the two schools since Dec. 20, 1969, when “Pistol” Pete Maravich posted 49 points in a 111-103 win for LSU. Maravich, of course, grew up in Clemson when his father Press was coaching the Tigers from 1956-62.
• With LSU’s addition to the schedule, Clemson now faces four SEC teams in 2014-15, most SEC teams faced since 2007-08.

• Both teams have faced Gardner-Webb this season. Clemson fell to the Bulldogs, 72-70, while LSU won at home 93-82 after trailing at halftime.
• Clemson would move to 2-1 for a third consecutive in regular season tournament play with a win Monday. The Tigers were 2-1 in the 2012 Old Spice Classic and 2013 Charleston Classic.
