The junior forward posted career highs with 30 points and 14 rebounds against the Irish, and followed with a game-high 24 points against the Cavaliers.

Boston College comes to town on Thursday for the Play4Kay pink game, while FSU comes into town on Sunday for senior day.

Diving (@ClemsonDiving)The women’s diving team competes at the ACC Championships beginning Thursday and concluding Saturday. It will be the second time competing at the event for the women’s-only program. Senior Emily Howard is coming off an ACC Female Diver-of-the-Week performance against Davidson and James Madison on February 8. She set the three-meter school record of 319.50 while taking second in the one-meter event with a score of 289.30. Chelsea Uranaka, Juliana Melchionda and Heather Britt also finished the season strong, each recording career-highs in one of the final two meets of the season.

Men’s Tennis (@ClemsonMTennis)Record: 10-1The 23rd-ranked men’s tennis team won its 10th match of the year as the Tigers defeated #24 Auburn 6-1 Sunday afternoon, the second top-25 victory this year. The Tigers are off to their best start since the 2010 team won its first 15 matches.

Clemson plays in the Blue-Gray Classic in Montgomery, Ala., beginning Friday.

Women’s Tennis (@ClemsonWTennis)Record: 7-2The 12th-ranked women’s tennis team won its third-consecutive match with a decisive 5-2 victory at #32 South Carolina Sunday. Clemson won the doubles point and claimed four straight-set wins in singles, downing the Gamecocks for the 11th time in the last 13 meetings.

Track and Field (@CUTrackandField)The men’s and women’s track and field teams took part in the eight-team Texas A&M Invitational. The Tiger women finished third in the event and the men placed fifth. Torian Ware earned a victory in the men’s high jump with a season-best clearance of 7’1.75″. Natalie Anthony was runner-up in the women’s 3K and fourth in the mile with a personal best. Mimi Land was the top female field event athlete, finishing third in both the long jump (19’8″) and triple jump (personal indoor best 41’4.25″). Lauren Terstappen also earned a third-place finish in the women’s pole vault at 13’2.25″. The teams rest this weekend and await the ACC Indoor Championships, set for Thursday, Feb. 27 through Saturday, March 1 at Clemson’s Indoor Track Complex.

Men’s Golf (@ClemsonMensGolf)The men’s golf team opens its spring season Sunday, Monday and Tuesday at the Puerto Rico Classic in San Juan. Clemson played the toughest schedule in the nation for the fall season according to the Golfweek Sagarin schedule rankings and playing in the Puerto Rico Classic will only enhance that ranking as a national field is set to play the Rio Mar Country Club River Course.

Cody Proveaux finished with an even par 216 score last year at this event and helped Clemson to an eighth place finish. Proveaux, Miller Capps and Stephen Behr are expected to lead the Tigers in this tournament.

Women’s Golf (@ClemsonWGolf)The women’s golf team had a strong showing in its first tournament of the spring with a second-place finish at the Florida State Match-Up in Tallahassee over the weekend.  The Tigers had the top team round in each of the last two rounds and finished just two shots out of first place for the 54 holes.

Ashlan Ramsey led the Tigers with a third place finish, her fifth top 10 in five tournaments this year. But, Ramsey had some help as Clemson had four of the top 16 individuals in the 11-team tournament. 

McKenzie Talbert (6th) and Lauren Salazar (7th) had their season best finishes and Sloan Shanahan finished 16th for her fifth-straight top 20 finish this year. Clemson and Virginia combined to win the Match-Up competition within the tournament by two shots over the team from South Carolina and Mississippi State.
