Streaks and Notes *Saturday’s game will be the first time two winners of the ACC’s Weaver-James-Corrigan Award have competed on the basketball court. Clemson’s Tom Wideman and Duke’s Trajan Langdon were named recipients of the scholarship this past week. It is the first time two men’s basketball players have been so honored in the same year.

*Clemson has a 1-22 lifetime record against the nation’s number-one ranked team. The school’s only win in history over the number-one team was against Duke on 1-9-80 at Littlejohn Coliseum. Clemson is 1-7 lifetime against a #1 ranked Duke team, but four of the losses are by five points or less.

*Clemson’s current seniors have faced the #1 team twice, a 73-70 loss to North Carolina at Clemson and a 66-64 loss to Duke in the ACC Tournament last year.

*Clemson’s Terrell McIntyre and Duke’s Trajan Langdon and William Avery are all ranked in the top 10 in the ACC in field goal percentage, free throw percentage and three-point percentage. Only six ACC players in history have finished a season in the top 10 in all three shooting areas.

*Clemson last won at Duke in 1994-95, Rick Barnes first year, by a 75-70 score. Duke entered the game ranked #9 in the nation. The Tigers have just four wins at Duke in history, but they have beaten Duke on the Blue Devils Senior Night. Bill Foster’s Tigers defeated Duke on Senior Night at Cameron Indoor Stadium on 2-29-84, 77-76. Duke was ranked 15th in the nation entering the game and Clemson had lost 11 consecutive ACC games entering that contest.

*Clemson has won two consecutive ACC games for the first time this year. Clemson has won the games by 33 and 23 points margins over Florida State and Virginia, respectively. Clemson is +41 in rebounding for the two games combined and has held the opposition to 39-113 field goal shooting, .345.

*Duke enters this game with a 35-game home winning streak, second longest in the nation. Only four times in those 35 games has the opposition come within seven points of Duke, twice by North Carolina and twice by Clemson. In fact, Clemson came the closest to beating Duke during the streak. Last year, Terrell McIntyre and Iker Iturbe had shots to win the game within the last four seconds. Duke won 81-80.

*Harold Jamison has had consecutive double-doubles, including 15 points and 12 rebounds against Virginia in the most recent game. He is shooting .702 from the field for the season and would be the national leader if he had three more made field goals through 26 games.

*Tom Wideman and Harold Jamison will be playing in their 121st consecutive game when the Tigers meet Duke on Saturday. That ties for the second longest streak in Clemson history. Greg Buckner played 122 in a row.

*Terrell McIntyre ranks second the ACC in scoring with a 17.54 average. He is averaging 21.8 points per game over the last five contests. He is trying to become the first Tiger to lead the ACC in scoring since Horace Grant in 1986-87. He now has 11 games of at least 20 points this year, eight in ACC play.

*Terrell McIntyre is now fifth in Clemson history in scoring with 1668 points. He needs 429 to go ahead of Horace Grant into fourth place. Harold Jamison needs 5 rebounds to move into 5th place on Clemson’s career rebound list. He has 832, Elden Campbell had 836.
