CLEMSON, S.C. – The Clemson Tigers women’s basketball team (8-12, 1-7) continues its three-game home stretch and takes on the Wake Forest Demon Deacons (4-15, 0-7).

The game tips off in Littlejohn Coliseum on Sunday, January 28 at 6:00 p.m. and can be seen on ACC Network. Jenn Hildreth and Debbie Antonelli will be on the call for ACC Network, William Qualkinbush and Tori Niemann 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 are teams that are currently ranked in the AP Top 25.

Amari Robinson leads the Tigers this season in scoring (17.5 ppg) and rebounding (7.1 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 game against Virginia Tech, Robinson tallied 19 points and nine rebounds.

Robinson currently ranks fourth in Tiger history with 1,712 career points. She needs 84 more to move into third place. Her 884 career rebounds are good enough for fourth-most in Tigers history, and she needs 49 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 46% from the floor and 35% 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 games against No. 13 Louisville and No. 14 Virginia Tech, all while shooting 50% from the floor and averaging 3.5 rebounds, 3.5 steals, and 7.5 assists over that same stretch.

Ruby Whitehorn’s defense really came to life in Clemson’s game against No. 7 North Carolina State. The star sophomore had two big-time swats while tying her career high by nabbing four steals.
