CLEMSON, S.C. – The Clemson volleyball team is set to host Wake Forest and Duke for a pair of ACC matches on Friday and Sunday, respectively, in Jervey Gym. Friday’s contest against the Demon Deacons is scheduled for 7 p.m., while Sunday’s match against the Blue Devils is slated for 1 p.m., and will air on ACC Network Extra.

Clemson (6-16, 1-9 ACC) enters the weekend after picking up its first ACC victory in a sweep over Boston College (26-24, 25-16, 25-22) Friday in Jervey Gym. The Tigers hit .243 for the match, a mark they had not achieved during ACC play and best since their 3-0 win over Georgia Southern (.303) on Sept. 16. Clemson was led by Kaylin Korte, Kailey Harvell and Keely Hayes in the 3-0 triumph over the Eagles. Korte tallied 16 kills on the match, while hitting .324. Harvell tallied 15 kills and hit .355, while Hayes totaled her season high of 31 assists. Clemson fell 3-0 (20-25, 15-25, 20-25) to Syracuse on Sunday in Jervey Gym. The Tigers were out-hit by the Orange .417 to .122. Korte and Harvell posted 12 kills each, while Hayes notched her second straight 30-assist match, tallying all but one of the Tigers’ 31 assists.

Clemson will look to even the season series against Wake Forest (11-11, 3-7 ACC) Friday as the Deacs got the best of the Tigers in Winston-Salem, N.C., on Sept. 24. Wake Forest took the match in four sets (25-27, 24-26, 25-22, 27-25) in the closest match of the season for the Tigers in which all four sets were decided by exactly two points. As a team, Clemson posted as season-high 16.0 blocks and season-best 44 assists against an ACC opponent. All-time against the Deacs, the Tigers are 30-15 and 14-8 in Clemson, S.C.

Duke (13-8, 5-5 ACC) and Clemson will square off for the first and only time this season on Sunday. The two teams are set for the 63rd match in program history with the Blue Devils leading the series, 39-23, and own a 15-12 advantage at Clemson. Duke enters the weekend after snapping a four-match skid last weekend at Virginia (3-1) and Virginia Tech (3-2). The Blue Devils are led by senior libero Nicole Elattrache, who is averaging 4.04 digs per set this season.
