SPORT UPDATES

Baseball (@ClemsonBaseball)
Record: 21-14, 10-7 ACC
Clemson lost four of five games last week, including two one-run losses at No. 2 Virginia over the weekend. The Tigers outscored the Cavaliers 9-5 and held Virginia to only 14 hits in the series, but fell short in two hard-fought games. Daniel Gossett tossed 7.0 stellar innings in Clemson's 7-1 win over the Cavaliers on Saturday and Tyler Slaton upped his active on-base streak to 19 games Sunday. The Tigers host Coastal Carolina on Tuesday night before traveling to Pittsburgh to face the Panthers in the first-ever meetings between the two schools.

Football (@ClemsonFB)
Senior quarterback Cole Stoudt threw for 158 yards and two scores and senior defensive end Tavaris Barnes recorded a Clemson Spring Game record five sacks to lead the White Squad to a 24-5 victory over the Orange Squad in the program's annual Spring Game.  The contest completed spring practice for Dabo Swinney's Tigers, who have ranked in the top 10 of the final USA Today poll each of the last two years. A Clemson Spring Game record crowd of 33,000 attended the game that was played in brilliant sunshine at Memorial Stadium.

Clemson returns to the course this weekend at the Wolfpack Spring  Open in Raleigh, N.C.  The tournament will be played at the Lonnie Poole Golf Course, one of the six NCAA Tournament regional sites.  It is a 36-hole event that will be played April 19-20.  This will be Clemson's final regular season tournament. Clemson enters the tournament ranked 27th in the latest Golf World Coaches poll, 30th in the Sagarin Golfweek computer ranking and 32nd by Golfstat. Clemson's schedule is ranked fourth in the nation by Golfweek.

Miller Capps will lead the Tigers into this week's event. The sophomore is ranked 91st nationally in the latest Sagarin ranking.  He will be joined in the Clemson lineup by Stephen Behr, Austin Langdale, Cody Proveaux and Carson Young.

J.T. Horton's ladies return to the course this week and begin postseason play at the ACC Tournament at historic Sedgefield Country Club in Greensboro, N.C.  The Tigers are ranked in the top 17 in the nation by the college golf rankings.  The 54-hole event will be played Thursday-Saturday, April 16-18 at the course that serves as the home of the Wyndham Championship on the PGA Tour. 

Clemson's all freshman team is led by Ashlan Ramsey, who is ranked 15th in the nation by Golfstat and 21st by Sagarin.  Sloan Shanahan is the number-two ranked player on the team with a #29 rating by Golfstat and #50 by Sagarin.
