The Tigers look to avenge their loss to the Heels a few weeks ago, which they would have won if they hadn't shot 1-18 from the arc.

Tip is at 7:00 on ESPN, and I'll have live updates right here. Also, I will be doing my first live broadcast on the PSF (Pro Sports Fans) app! Download the app for free, and watch my broadcast on your phone or tablet while you have the game on TV!

Wow, what a half by the Tigers! I'm doing my live broadcast on the free PSF app, so I haven't been posting play by play here, but download the free PSF app to watch my live broadcast on your phone or tablet as you watch the game!

The Tigers lead 39-25 with 3 minutes left in the half. What a performance at both ends! Hall has a pair of 3's, and Girard has 2. They made just ONE 3 in that loss to the Heels a few weeks ago! If they had just as many as Hall's made tonight in the first half, they would have won that game!

Incredible they've held the Heels to just 25 points with 3 mins to go in the half! One of the best offenses in the nation. They scored 50 in the first half of their win over No.7 Duke the other night! The Tigers held the Heels to just 65 points a few weeks ago, which was 20 points less than their season average.

Let's hope the Tigers can keep this up and that the refs don't start cheating like they did in 2008 when the Tigers led by 18 in the 2nd half at Chapel Hill! The refs started calling fouls on the Tigers every 30 seconds that night and forced the game to go to overtime.

What a half! The Tigers led by 16 with just 2:30 left, but the Heels went on a bit of a run, scoring 9 points in the last couple minutes. Let's hope the Tigers can keep this up in the second half! Hall scored 14, shooting 3-5 from the arc, and Girard scored 12. Chase Hunter has 7. incredibly, RJ Davis, the leading candidate for ACC POY, scored just 6 in the half and was 2-10 from the field. Notre Dame transfer Cormac Ryan has yet to score. He was 0-6 from the field and 0-4 from the arc.

Ugh Heels start the half where they left off. They've outscored the Tigers 12-6 in the first 5 mins of the 2nd half, cutting the lead to 3. It was a 16-point lead with 2:30 left in the first half. RJ Davis just made his third 3 of the game, and Ryan, who was scoreless in the first half, just hit a jumper to get off the schnide.

TIGERS WIN 80-76!!!

I wore my lucky shirt for the first time ever during a Clemson game for my first live broadcast on PSF, and it worked! Lol I'm gonna have to wear this shirt for the rest of the season now. They would have won by 7, but RJ Davis banked a 3 at the buzzer. Lol what a game! Second win ever in Chapel Hill, and over the No.3 ranked team that just beat No.7 Duke comfortably 3 nights ago! Boy, the Tigers needed that after their last 3 gut-wrenching losses! This is a HUGE win that can turn the whole season around and hopefully be a spring board for a great run in the ACC and beyond. Their confidence has to be through the roof right now! Should have beaten the Heels TWICE, and would have won at Duke if the refs hadn't stolen it. I said preseason that this is a top 15 team if they stay healthy, and I never budged from that, even after all the ACC losses.

They've gotta play like this on Saturday at Cuse to keep it going, though! They haven't won consecutive games yet in ACC play. It's gonna be a homecoming for Girard in the dome!

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