WHAT: Clemson vs. Maryland
WHERE: Littlejohn Coliseum (10,000) - Clemson, S.C.
WHEN: Tuesday, February 6 (7 p.m.)
SPREAD: Clemson -8
TV: ESPNU (Carter Blackburn, Jay Williams)
The two-game slide is the fourth-time Clemson has lost consecutive games
this season. A loss to Maryland at Littlejohn Coliseum on Tuesday night
would match the Tigers' longest losing streak of the season.
Clemson has lost five of its last seven, with four of the losses having
come by four points or less.
"We played really well at Virginia and lost in a close one. Didn't play as
well for part of the Virginia Tech game, rallied back and played well
late," Brownell said. "But you just have a bad taste in your mouth of not
winning a game. You want to feel what that's like again, to win. So I
think it's more important to do that."
Clemson (11-11, 3-5 ACC) will host a Maryland (13-9, 3-5 ACC) that's also
coming off of consecutive losses.
"It would definitely be a big win for us," said Bernard Sullivan, who
scored a career-high seven points against Virginia Tech on Saturday.
"Seeing where everyone is at, some of the teams are right in the same
situation that we are. It'd be real good to get that win, especially at
Maryland's leading scorer, Terrell Stoglin, is fifth in the country and
first in the ACC with 21.7 points per game.
"There will be a lot of guys try to guard him," Brownell said. "Bryan
Narcisse may guard him some. Tanner [Smith] may guard him some. Rod Hall
may guard him some. Andre [Young] could guard him some.
"We'll have to see who has success against him. The way the game is played
and match-ups will dictate some things. They're a little bigger than some
teams. We'll need a little more size. But I'm sure we'll probably have a
couple of different guys get a chance to guard him, and need a couple of
Clemson forward Milton Jennings has returned from suspension and will dress for
Tuesday's game. Jennings missed the last two games for academic reasons.
The Terrapins hold an 88-49 overall
advantage in the series, with Clemson leading 35-26 in games played at home.
This will be the first-ever meeting between Brad Brownell and Maryland's Mark Turgeon. Turgeon replaced legendary coach Gary Williams this season after Williams retired after the end the 2010-11 season.
