The Tigers are coming off their first conference loss at Miami, but have a chance to rebound in a big way today! Hemenway and Clark are still out, but the Tigers are favored by 3 points.

Tip is at noon on ESPN2, and I'll have live coverage from Littlejohn right here!

We're underway here at Littlejohn! Just about a full house here despite the early, rainy start. Hall made a pair of free throws to start the game, but the Tigers trail 13-9 after a jumper by Girard.

Ugh Tigers lose by 10. They were just 1-18 from 3! Would have won easily if they shot close to their normal average. Scored just 22 points in the 2nd half. They fall to 11-3 overall and 1-2 in the ACC.

TIGERS LOSE 65-55.

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