THE SERIES: Georgia Tech at Clemson
•Georgia Tech has a 56-53 lead in the

games series in 2005-06, the first time since
1996-97 that Clemson won the season series
from Georgia Tech with a sweep. Clemson has
won three of the last four, but Georgia Tech won
the last meeting at Tech in February of last season.
Clemson won the meeting at Clemson last
year on a near buzzer shot by James Mays.

time the Yellow Jackets had swept the Tigers
since 1985-86. Tech swept Clemson three of
the first five years Hewitt has been at Tech and
the Yellow Jacket mentor is 9-5 against Clemson.

played at Clemson and a 27-8 margin in games
in Littlejohn Coliseum. Clemson has won 16
of the last 22 between the two teams played at
Clemson. Clemson has more wins in Littlejohn
Coliseum against Georgia Tech than any other
ACC school. Overall, Tech and Furman have
the most losses at Littlejohn with 27.
•The two teams played a road-win
split series in 2001-02. But this has been a
home-team series, perhaps the most home-
team-dominated series in the ACC the last 20
years. The home team has won 32 of the last 42
•Clemson has just five wins at Georgia
Tech in the last 23 years. That includes the
victory in 2005-06 under Oliver Purnell. The
55-53 win in 1996-97, the 83-80 win in 1992-93

and Clemson has a 30-28 lead in those 58
contests. Clemson won the first six games in
the series when Tech joined the ACC. Tech is
the only team Clemson has beaten in the first
•Clemson won 14 in a row in the series
from 1971-72 to 1981-82. Tech began play
in the ACC in 1979-80, so some of those games

game series winning streak that was ended last
year was the longest for the Tigers since the
1971-72 to 1981-82 era.
•The series dates to the 1912-13
season, the second year in Clemson basketball
history. That year Clemson won at Tech, 26-22,
but lost at Clemson 29-13. That was the first
home loss in Clemson history after four straight
home wins. Those games were played on
consecutive days, February 7-8 of 1913, and
were just the 13th and 14th games in Clemson
•The two teams played a wild 111-108
game in 2000-01 at Clemson, Paul Hewitt's
first year as Tech head coach. Will Solomon
scored 41 points for the Tigers, but it was not
enough, as Tech made a then school record 17
three-point goals in 31 attempts, including 13
made three-point goals in the first half alone.
That is the most points by a Clemson player
against Georgia Tech.
•Clemson and Georgia Tech played
four consecutive games decided by two points
