OFFICIAL BASKETBALL THREAD: CLEMSON at NC State

CUTrevor 2023-02-25 10:57:57


Critical game in the ACC standings! The Tigers have a one-game lead on State for the coveted 4th spot in the standings and double-bye in the tournament, and the Tigers still have to play at UVA next, so they almost have to win this game. It would also give the Tigers' NCAA Tournament resume a huge boost. The Tigers won the first meeting by 14 points in Littlejohn, but Raleigh is always a tough place to play, and the Pack is hot. Their guards are tremendous, and Burns is a load to handle in the paint. If the Tigers play like they have at home the last two games, they'll have a shot, but we'll see if they're able to perform on the road.

Tip is at noon on ACCNX, and I'll have live updates right here!

TIGERS LEAD 54-29 AT THE HALF.



WOW!!! That was one of their best halves of the season and by far their best on the road! The Tigers shot a ridiculous 8-14 from 3. Galloway scored 20 points, and Hall had 16! What has gotten into Galloway?? Let's see if they can score 100 for the second time this season! They almost did it in their last couple home games.

Middlebrooks hits a jumper with 11 seconds left!



TIGERS WIN 96-71!!!



What a statement win! In my opinion, they are in the NCAA Tournament, assuming they take care of business at home against Notre Dame. It will be a bonus if they win at UVA on Tuesday. As long as they split those games, though, they will be no worse than 4th in the final ACC standings and get a double-bye in the tournament!

I'll have post-game interviews and highlights shortly!
