Clemson is led by 6'10 All-America candidate P.J. Hall who is averaging 20.5 points per game, 6.5 rebounds and 2.3 assists. Syracuse transfer Joe Girard is averaging 15.6 PPG, 3.8 RPG, 3.7 APG and shoots 45.8 percent on threes, making 3.2 per game. Chase Hunter is the third double figure scorer for Clemson averaging 11.0 PPG.

Clemson is a huge test for Miami when healthy. North Carolina is the only team in the ACC ranked higher than Clemson. Without Pack and potentially Poplar, Miami is going to need big games from Matthew Cleveland and Norchad Omier. George has the potential for a big game.
