What to Know
The Clemson Tigers and the Morehead State Eagles are set to clash at 7 p.m. ET March 15 at Littlejohn Coliseum in the first round of the NIT. Neither of these teams found much success offensively their last time out, scoring well below their season averages.
Clemson has to be hurting after a devastating 76-56 loss at the hands of the Virginia Cavaliers last week. Forward Hunter Tyson (15 points) and center PJ Hall (13 points) were the top scorers for the Tigers.
Meanwhile, the Eagles came up short against the SE Missouri State Redhawks two weeks ago, falling 65-58. Guard Mark Freeman put forth a good effort for the losing side as he had 21 points.
Clemson is expected to win this handily, but they should have beaten the Louisville Cardinals Feb. 18 easily too and instead slipped up with an 83-73. In other words, don't count Morehead State out just yet.
