Before Friday's win over Savannah State, wins were at a premium for the Tigers, which had lost three-straight before the 61-40 win against the Tigers.

"We played well enough in large spurts of the game against Florida State to win," Brownell said. "We just haven't figured out how to win. We played well enough in parts against South Carolina, but we also played well enough to lose both games."

Clemson (6-4) hosts UNC Greensboro (0-9) at Littlejohn Coliseum before a nationally televised audience.

"In three of the four losses, we've been right there," Brownell said. "We just haven't been good enough to finish games off, or do the things necessary that good teams do to win. Our team needs to find those things out."

The Tigers had the winning formula in last season's meeting when the Spartans were bounced 89-67 at the Greensboro Coliseum.

Clemson won the only other meeting between the two schools, an 88-62 win in December of 1992.

This year, Clemson is second in the ACC in scoring defense, giving up an average of 61 points per game. The Tigers are also fourth in the conference with an average of 7.6 steals.

Andre Young is among the top 10 leaders in the ACC in five different statistical categories: 3-point goals per game, 3-point percentage, steals per game, assist-to-turnover ratio and minutes per game.

UNC Greensboro is already very familiar with the ACC, with games against Florida State, Maryland, Virginia Tech and Wake Forest.

Kyle Randall leads the Spartans with 12.6 points per game. Aloysius Henry and Brandon Evans average 11.8 and 10.1 points, respectively.

Mike Dement is in his 10th season at UNC Greensboro, where he's amassed a 115-158 record.
