Clemson lost to UTEP, rebounded with an overtime win over Southern Illinois before falling to the host Warriors on Christmas Day. • The Buccaneers enter Sunday’s tilt with a 5-6 overall record and have not played since dropping a 66-63 game at Tennessee on Friday, Dec. 23. • This will be Clemson’s fourth game played on New Year’s Day. The Tigers won their most recent game played on the holiday, an 87-61 win at Alabama in 2008. • Brad Brownell and East Tennessee State Head Coach Murry Bartow faced one another when Brownell was the head coach at UNC Wilmington.
