What to Know

The Clemson Tigers will take on the South Carolina Upstate Spartans at 7 p.m. ET Tuesday at Littlejohn Coliseum. Neither of those teams managed to put together many points in their previous contests, so their meeting could be a low-scoring affair.

Clemson lost 60-58 to the South Carolina Gamecocks this past Friday on a last-minute half-court bomb from USC's guard Chico Carter Jr. with 0:01 left to play. The contest was as close as the oddsmakers predicted, but the Tigers had been the slight favorite coming in. They got double-digit scores from four players: PJ Hall (15), guard Chase Hunter (13), guard Brevin Galloway (13), and forward Hunter Tyson (10).

Meanwhile, South Carolina Upstate took a serious blow against the Duke Blue Devils this past Friday, falling 84-38. Trae Broadnax wasn't much of a difference maker for South Carolina Upstate; Broadnax played for 29 minutes but put up just eight points.

This next game looks promising for Clemson, who are favored by a full 21.5 points. They may be expected to win, but bettors beware: they are 0-2 against the spread when favored.

Both of these teams will be looking to put their recent losses behind them and walk away with a win. We'll see which team satisfies their hunger and which team leaves with an empty stomach.
