QUICK HITS

  • Last season at McCamish Pavilion, Clemson won 63-60 after Milton Jennings blocked the tying shot in the final seconds to preserve the win.
  • In the first meeting on Feb. 4, Clemson won 45-41 in an odd game. The team's top players, Clemson's K.J. McDaniels and Tech's Marcus Hunt, combined to shoot 4-of-27 from the field. Also, Georgia Tech was down regular contributors in Trae Golden and Robert Carter Jr. due to injuries.
  • Clemson's three-point percentage defense (.275) is on pace to establish a single-season school record. The previous best was .294 in 2009-10. The Tigers currently rank fourth among NCAA teams in defending the three.
  • K.J. McDaniels, coming off a six-block effort against NC State, is on pace for the best per game average (2.88) by a Tiger since Sharone Wright in 1993-94.
  • Rod Hall scored a career-high 20 points against NC State; he had the best perfect free throw shooting of his career vs. the ‘Pack (8-for-8 at the line).
  • Damarcus Harrison is coming off his best offensive output since November; he posted 14 in the win over NC State on Tuesday.
