• Sunday’s game is the 15th meeting between Brad Brownell and Jim Larrañaga as head coaches, dating to their days leading UNC Wilmington and George Mason, respectively.

• Clemson’s “revenge” win over Florida State — a win over an ACC team that had previously beaten the Tigers at home — was only the eighth in school history, but second straight in Tallahassee.

• For the second straight season, Clemson earned its sixth ACC win on Feb. 4.

• Clemson’s four-game ACC winning streak is its longest since the 1996-97 season, Rick Barnes’ third season as head coach of the Tigers.

• The Tiger defense has held four straight ACC opponents below 40 percent shooting from the field — a first since Feb. 25 through March 5, 1964.

• In four games as a starter, Jordan Roper is averaging 16.8 points per game, up 12.6 from his average coming off the bench.

• Josh Smith set a career high with eight points at Florida State, while Austin Ajukwa matched his with seven — all in the opening half.
