SPORT UPDATES

Baseball (@CUTigerBaseball)
The team continues preseason practice in preparation for its season-opener against Eastern Michigan on Feb. 14, when the Tigers will open the season ranked #13 in the Baseball America ranking. The team will hold its annual preseason banquet Sunday night.

Men's Basketball (@ClemsonMBB)
Record: 14-6, 5-3 ACC
The Tigers played just once last week, winning their third conference road game of the season, 53-49 over Florida State. It marked only the ninth time in 61 ACC seasons the Clemson program has achieved three road wins in league play. K.J. McDaniels was spectacular with 26 points, one shy of his career-high. He also had a team-best seven rebounds and three highlight-reel blocks to lead the stingy Tiger defense. Jaron Blossomgame added 10 points, all in the second half. Clemson plays Georgia Tech at home on Tuesday, an 8 p.m. tipoff from Littlejohn Coliseum.

Women's Basketball (@ClemsonWBB)
Record: 11-12, 3-6 ACC
The women's hoops team split a pair of games on the week, highlighted by an 80-79 overtime victory in Atlanta on Thursday. It was Clemson's first win over Georgia Tech in Atlanta since 2004. Nikki Dixon scored 23 points, including the 1000th of her career in the contest. The Tigers play No. 3 Duke this Thursday in Littlejohn Coliseum at 7 p.m.  

Diving (@ClemsonDiving)
The women's diving team had a record-setting performance Saturday in a 32-6 win over College of Charleston. Emily Howard set the school record in both the one-meter and three-meter events with scores of 295.40 and 312.30, respectively. Juliana Melchionda recorded NCAA Zones qualifying scores in both events to become the seventh Tiger to qualify in at least one event. Danielle Reitsma qualified for zones in the one and three-meter events for the time to become the first Tiger to qualify in all three events this year. Chelsea Uranaka qualified in the one-meter event for the first time. Five of the seven Tiger divers to qualify this season have now qualified in multiple events. Clemson will conclude the regular season on Saturday at noon as they host Davidson and James Madison on Senior Day.

Men's Tennis (@ClemsonMTennis)
Record: 8-1
Clemson went 4-0 over the weekend to improve its record to 8-1 overall this season.   On Friday, Clemson defeated the College of Charleston 4-0 and Wofford 7-0.  On Sunday, the Tigers defeated Winthrop 7-0 and Anderson 5-0.

The Tigers' Hunter Harrington is now 11-5 overall this season, while the doubles team of Harrington and Dom Maden is 10-2 on the season. The duo is 5-0 in dual matches.    

Ranked 24th nationally according to the latest ITA poll, the Tigers host UNC Wilmington at Clemson on Saturday, at 12:00 p.m in the Tigers' next action. 

Women's Tennis (@ClemsonWTennis)
Record: 4-1
The Clemson women's tennis team fell at #4 Georgia, 7-0, its first loss of the season, in Athens on Saturday. The Tigers, who have four players ranked, will play in the ITA Team National Indoor Championships in Charlottesville, Va., beginning Feb. 7. The Tigers are in the Round of 16, after advancing past the first two rounds two weekends ago. 

Track and Field (@CUTrackandField)
The men's and women's teams enjoyed a solid weekend at the Bob Pollock Classic, the second of Clemson's three home indoor meets. The women's triple jumpers swept the top three spots Saturday, led by Anasterasia Terrell at 41'1". On Friday, Lauren Terstappen cleared 13'1.5", a season-best, to tie for the win in the pole vault. Overall, Clemson won eight events at the two-day meet. The Tigers return to action Friday and Saturday this weekend at the Armory Collegiate Invitational in New York City.
