• 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.
