CLEMSON, S.C.  The Clemson Tigers women’s basketball team (11-16, 4-11) hosts the Miami Hurricanes (16-10, 6-9) on Sunday afternoon.

The game tips off in Littlejohn Coliseum on Sunday, February 25 at 2:00 p.m. and can be seen on ACCNX. Fred Cunningham and Jim Davis will be on the call for ACCNX, William Qualkinbush and Tori Niemann can be heard locally on 105.5 The Roar and the Clemson Tigers app.

Sunday’s game is the Tigers’ senior day and the team will be holding a ceremony immediately following the game. The team will be celebrating the careers of Amani Freeman, Dayshanette Harris, Danielle Rauch, and Amari Robinson.

Clemson is also holding its alumni game and will be celebrating the 25thanniversary of the 1998-99 Tigers who won the ACC Championship and advanced to the Sweet Sixteen in the NCAA tournament.

Amari Robinson is playing in her final home game as a Tiger and has cemented her legacy as a Littlejohn Legend this season. She leads the Tigers this season in scoring (17.3 ppg) and rebounding (6.7 rpg) and is one of the most efficient scorers in the country. Amari is the ACC leader in true shooting percentage (.632) and effective field goal percentage (.584).

In Clemson’s last game, Robinson made her 662nd field goal to surpass Shandy Bryan for fourth-most field goals in Tiger history. She currently has 664. Robinson now has 1,829 career points and ranks third in the Clemson record books for most points in a career. Her 923 career rebounds are good enough for fourth-most in Tigers history, and she needs 10 rebounds to surpass Lele Hardy for third-most. Her 420 made free throws are the second most out of any Tiger player.

Dayshanette Harris, a fifth-year student-athlete who played four years at Pitt, is having the best season of her career. Harris is scoring 13.6 points per game and is shooting at the best clip of her career. She’s shooting a career-high of 46% from the floor, 32% from three-point range, and is ranked fourth in the nation in assist percentage (45%). She’s one of just six players in the ACC to be averaging five or more assists per game.

During Clemson’s eight-game stretch prior to this week, Harris leads the tigers with 18.5 points per game, 5.6 assists per game, 2.1 steals per game, and has scored 20 points on five different occasions (25 vs. Louisville, 25 vs. Virginia Tech, 23 vs. Virginia, 22 vs. Miami, and 24 vs. Georgia Tech).

Over Clemson’s last seven outings, Ruby Whitehorn has become one of the best rebounders in the ACC. She set a new career high with 10 rebounds against Notre Dame – recording her first career double-double and tied her previous career high in rebounding three times (nine against Wake Forest, Virginia, and Georgia Tech). Whitehorn is averaging 8.4 rebounds per game during that stretch. For the season, she’s nabbing over five rebounds per game. Whitehorn has led the Tigers on the boards in each of the last seven games.

Her prowess isn’t limited to the glass, however. The super-sophomore is putting up 13 points per outing over those same seven games, highlighted by a 19-point effort against Boston College and an additional 17 points against 19th-ranked Notre Dame.
