TIGER TRACKS
• Clemson is ranked for the fifth consecutive week in the AP Top 25 poll (No. 20). Clemson is also ranked in the USA Today Coaches Poll at No. 20
• Clemson’s RPI checks in at fifth nationally.
• With a win over North Carolina on Jan. 30, the Tigers have now begun ACC play 7-3.
• Clemson tied the school record for most threes made by the home team in Littlejohn Coliseum with that performance against UNC
• It is the seventh time in Clemson history (in 64 ACC seasons) that a Tiger team has started league play with at least a 7-3 record through 10 games.
• Clemson guard Marcquise Reed led Clemson in scoring, rebounding and assists in the win over North Carolina. We refer to that accomplishment as a “Triple Leadership”, a rare occurrence. It marked the first time in almost exactly 10 years that a Clemson player had a “Triple Leadership” at home.
