No. 15 Tigers Set for Key ACC Weekend

Release:  04/03/2014
CLEMSON, SC - After a month away from home, 15th-ranked Clemson (16-3, 8-0 ACC) returns to the Hoke Sloan Tennis Center to face a nationally ranked Florida State team on Friday before going back on the road to face a top-10 Virginia squad on Sunday. The Tigers and No. 38 Seminoles (11-7, 4-4 ACC) will square off at 3 p.m. while the match with the No. 9 Cavaliers (13-4, 7-1 ACC) will begin at noon.

The Tigers are currently in the midst of a nine-match winning streak, including an 8-0 start to ACC play. That conference start matches a school record for most wins to begin conference play with the 2004 team that went 8-0 in ACC play, and captured the ACC Tournament title before eventually going on to the Final Four. In their past five matches, the Tigers have claimed 33 of a possible 35 match points, cruising to easy victories. Clemson is 6-1 at home on the season.

Historically, Clemson owns a 22-9 all-time record against the Seminoles. Last season, the Tigers defeated the Seminoles 5-2 in Tallahassee but fell 4-3 in the ACC Quarterfinals. The Tigers have had similar success against the Cavaliers, winning 35 of 41 all-time meetings including a 4-3 victory in Clemson a season ago.

Live stats will be available for both matches and other statistical updates can be found by following the Tigers on Twitter, @ClemsonWTennis.
