Saturday 7:30 PM: South Carolina at #4 Clemson
Clemson rebounded from a sloppy upset loss against Pittsburgh by manhandling Wake Forest on the road. Now a supremely talented 10-1, the Tigers continue to mix in uneven efforts alongside dominant performances and cannot afford a let down against their instate rivals this week. A loss to the Gamecocks would eliminate them from playoff consideration and close the books on the ACC's chances for representation in the final four. South Carolina is a capable 6-5 with wins over Tennessee and Missouri over the past four weeks. It's difficult to know which Clemson team will show up Saturday night, but fans in Death Valley would be forgiven for feeling very nervous.
