The Tigers had four players in double figures. Chase Hunter had a team high 17, Hunter Tyson had 15 points and 10 boards for his 5th double-double in conference play this season. Two Upstate natives combined for 24 in the game. Seneca product Brevin Galloway had 12 and Dorman alum P.J. Hall added a dozen, as well.

The Tigers are 5-0 in ACC games, marking the program's best conference start since the 1996-97 season. Clemson is back in action and will be at home for the first time in the new year, as they host Louisville Wednesday night for a 9 Pm tipoff and look to move to 6-0 in the ACC and maintain sole possession of 1st place.
