That's how Clemson is faring in conference play through 10 games. The Tigers have done a decent job of rebounding the ball at both ends, as well as drawing fouls at the offensive end, and their interior defense has been fine from both a shooting percentage and block-rate perspective.

NC State made just 43.6% of its twos against the Tigers in the first meeting, and that's something that will need to change today (#analysis #education). Fortunately Scott Wood and Rodney Purvis combined to hit five of 10 three-point attempts in that game, which was crucial in the whole avoiding-a-bad-loss thing.

The slide has to end now, regardless of injuries. Clemson is a scary place, as we saw last year, and as we've seen plenty of times in the past. But we need to get past this recent stretch in a definitive way or else I'm going to start actually worrying and I don't want to worry about stuff so let's not go there.
