WHERE: Littlejohn Coliseum (10,000) - Clemson, S.C.
WHEN: Monday, Dec. 27 (7 p.m.)

series history on Monday, but it will be the first matchup
between the two schools since the 1986-87 season. Clemson
holds a 2-0 advantage in the series.
• The Tigers are coming off their first road win of the season,
a 66-59 triumph over the College of Charleston at Carolina
First Arena. It was Clemson's 13th road non-conference win
in its last 14 games.
• Clemson held College of Charleston to 59 points, a seasonlow
for the Cougars. In fact, it was CofC's lowest point
production since a 77-54 loss to Appalachian State in the
2010 Southern Conference Tournament.
• Monday's game will be the first versus a team from the
state of Delaware since the Tigers took on the University of
Delaware in the 1996-97 season in San Juan, Puerto Rico.
• Clemson is second in the ACC and one of the top 50 teams in
the nation in scoring defense, allowing just 60.8 points per

second straight double-double in the win over Charleston.

per game in two career meetings with Delaware State.
• Demontez Stitt returned to the lineup on Dec. 22 against
College of Charleston, just nine days removed from
arthroscopic knee surgery. Stitt had eight points, six

the stretch for the Tigers in the victory over the Cougars. He
took a charge with under four minutes to play, and then hit
a shot to put the Tigers ahead by five with 45 seconds left.
• Andre Young has made at least one three-point goal in 13
consecutive games and in 28 of Clemson's last 29 games
overall. Young ranks among the top five in the ACC in threepoint
goals, three-point accuracy, minutes per game, steals
per game and assist-to-turnover ratio.

coach at Delaware State. He played in 29 games for the
Tigers from 1978-81 and was a member of Clemson's Elite
Eight team in 1980.
