Clemson Has Not Beaten UNC Since 2010

The Clemson Tigers opened the season 11-2 with a perfect 7-0 record at home, but if they want to prove they belong among the elite in the ACC, they need to prove they can hang with UNC. The Tigers have lost eight straight against the Tar Heels dating back to the beginning of 2010.

SHARK BITES
  • Clemson is 10-2 SU in its last 12 games at home against teams with winning records.
  • UNC is 9-0 SU in its last 9 games after losing as a favorite.
  • UNC is 6-1 ATS in its last 7 games against the ACC.

Though it hasn’t always been pretty, Clemson continues to find ways to get it done on the court, which includes going on a 15-0 game-ending run against Wake Forest in their last outing. Four different Clemson players are averaging double-digit points, but the ball goes through Jaron Blossomgame first and foremost, as the senior leads the team in scoring and shot attempts by a wide margin.

UNC is coming off an embarrassing loss to Georgia Tech that saw the Tar Heels shoot 33.3 percent from the floor and 19.2 from deep. The starting lineup of UNC was especially bad, going 16-for-50 from the floor and a terrible 2-for-20 from beyond the arc.
