The offense lost a couple of efficient starters after last season, though neither one--Andre Young, Tanner Smith--was a major difference-maker. This year they've gotten more efficient play from Devin Booker and Milton Jennings, which has essentially allowed them to tread water. The Tigers have been an average three-point shooting team this season, and they don't take a ton of them. So we at least probably don't have to worry about this team going bombs away on us. But anything can happen in a single game, obviously. It's a solid-shooting team inside the arc (49.2% from two), but again that's not a particularly scary figure. Like State, the Tigers are having a rough go of it at the free throw line, and their turnover rate is way up in conference games. More from BackingThePack.com Clemson has played three ranked opponents this season — competing hard, but coming up empty in the "W" category each time. They led at halftime against No. 17 Gonzaga at the Old Spice Classic on Thanksgiving Day. Early December, the Tigers had the edge as late as eight minutes left on No. 8 Arizona in Littlejohn Coliseum. And against No. 1 Duke, their last lead came much, much earlier in the game, but Clemson (10-6, 2-2 ACC) held one of the nation’s more prolific offenses to 25 points at the half.
