CLEMSON, S.C. – The Clemson Tigers women’s basketball (8-11, 1-6) team returns home to take on the No. 7 North Carolina State Wolfpack (16-2, 4-2).

The game tips off in Littlejohn Coliseum on Thursday, January 25 at 7:00 p.m. and can be seen on ACCNX. Pete Yanity and Jim Davis will be on the call on ACCNX, William Qualkinbush and Sarah-Jo Lawrence can be heard locally on 105.5 The Roar or on the Clemson Tigers app.

Clemson is wrapping up one of the toughest scheduling stretches in the country. The Tigers are the only team in the nation to have a stretch where six of its last seven opponents – including North Carolina State – are teams that are currently ranked in the AP Top 25.

Amari Robinson leads the Tigers this season in scoring (17.8 ppg) and rebounding (6.9 rpg). Not only is Robinson getting a ton of buckets, but she’s also doing it efficiently and ranks second in the ACC, and 29th in the country in field goal percentage (57.1%). Against Georgia Tech, Robinson notched a double-double at Georgia Tech (19 points, 10 rebounds) and followed that up by scoring a career-high 37 points on 14-19 shooting in just 27 minutes. In Clemson’s most recent game against Virginia Tech, Robinson tallied 19 points and nine rebounds.

Robinson currently ranks fourth in Tiger history with 1,702 career points. She needs 94 more to move up another rung on the ladder and move into third place. Her 875 career rebounds are good enough for fourth-most in Tigers history, and she needs 58 rebounds to surpass Lele Hardy for third-most.

Dayshanette Harris, a fifth-year student-athlete who played four years at Pitt, is having a career year. Harris is scoring over 12 points per game and is shooting at the best clip of her career. She’s shooting career highs of 47% from the floor and 37% from three-point land.

With seven assists in Clemson’s game against Louisville, Harris, a four-year starter at Pitt, set a new career high for most assists in a season. Harris has scored a season-high 25 points in Clemson’s last two outings while shooting 50% from the floor and averaging 3.5 rebounds, 3.5 steals, and 7.5 assists over that same stretch.

Ruby Whitehorn has lived up to the potential that the Tigers saw last season and has competed at an All-ACC level in her last eight games. The Detroit native is averaging 14.1 points per game, shooting 46% from the floor, 35% from beyond the arc, all while grabbing 4.6 rebounds and 1.5 steals per contest. Whitehorn’s points per game and shooting slash are all up from her freshman campaign.
