Clemson’s women’s basketball team will play host to Pittsburgh on Saturday at Littlejohn Coliseum. The 4:00 game will serve as the first of a doubleheader, as the Clemson men play at 7:00 against Charleston Southern.

The Lady Tigers are 3-4 on the season, but have won two straight. Clemson won an 87-79 overtime thriller over South Carolina in Columbia last Friday, before cruising to a 72-48 win over Morehead State at home on Sunday.

Clemson is among the conference leaders in rebounding (+5.7) and blocked shots (5.0 per game). The Lady Tigers also lead the ACC in offensive rebounds per game.

Clemson has been led recently by Reggie Maddox, a junior guard from Dyersburg, TN. Maddox had a double-double with 17 points and 11 rebounds against South Carolina. Over the last two games, she has 10 assists against just two turnovers. She leads the team in scoring at 10.4 points per game and is actually third in rebounding at 6.3 per game.

Julie Talley have increased their production over the last couple of games. White had a season-high 17 points to go along with seven rebounds in the win over Morehead State, while Talley has hit nine of her last 20 three-point shots. She leads the team and is 10th in the ACC at 36.1 percent from the outside.

Pittsburgh enters Saturday’s game with a 6-2 record. The Panthers took in-state foe Penn State to overtime on Thursday night, but the Nittany Lions prevailed 84-79. The Panthers also lost earlier this week to Duquesne.

The Panthers had four double-figure scorers in the game against Penn State, led by 18 from Vika Sholokhova. Pittsburgh outscored Penn State 22-6 in terms of second chance points, thanks in large part to 22 offensive rebounds and a +6 advantage on the boards.

Pittsburgh has four players averaging double figures in scoring, led by Katie Histed’s 13.8 per game average. Cheron Taylor, Marcedes Walker, and Amy Kunich also average double figures for Pitt. The Panthers have been strong in rebounding this season, as evidenced by the team’s +7.1 per game figure.
