QUICK HITS

  • Clemson's last win over Miami came in 2010-11; his Tigers swept the Hurricanes that season, winning 79-72 at home and 63-59 in Coral Gables.
  • The Tigers are playing their second game in a two-day span, the third time this ACC regular season Clemson has played on one day's preparation.
  • The two head coaches, Brownell and Miami's Jim Larrañaga, are old rivals from their days in the Colonial Athletic Association. Brownell coached UNC Wilmington to a pair of CAA titles, while Larrañaga is well known for taking his 2006 George Mason team to the Final Four.
  • Clemson is in search of its 10th ACC win Tuesday, a feat that has been accomplished only three times in 61 seasons by the Tiger program.
  • K.J. McDaniels posted his fifth "20 & 10" game of the season against Maryland, most by an ACC player this season and most by a Tiger since Sharrod Ford also had five as a senior in 2004-05.
  • McDaniels needs 21 to become the 14th player in Clemson history to score at least 500 in a single season. K.C. Rivers (2007-08) was the last to do it.
