BLACKSBURG, Va. – The Clemson Tigers women’s basketball (8-10, 1-5) team hits the road to take on the No. 14 Virginia Tech Hokies (13-4, 4-2).

The game tips off in Cassell Coliseum on Sunday, January 21 at 12:00 p.m. and can be seen on The CW. Kylen Mills and Kelley Deyo will be on the call on The CW, William Qualkinbush and Jim Davis can be heard locally on 105.5 The Roar or on the Clemson Tigers app.

Amari Robinson leads the Tigers this season in scoring (17.8 ppg) and rebounding (6.8 rpg). Not only is Robinson getting a ton of buckets, but she’s also doing it efficiently and ranks second in the ACC in field goal percentage (58.5%). 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.

Robinson currently ranks fourth in Tiger history with 1,683 career points. She needs 113 more to move up another rung on the ladder and move into third place. Her 866 career rebounds are good enough for fifth-most in Tigers history, and she needs nine rebounds to surpass Shandy Bryan for fourth-most.

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 seven games. The Detroit native is averaging 15 points per game, shooting 47% from the floor, 36% from beyond the arc, all while grabbing five rebounds and 1.7 steals per contest. Whitehorn’s points per game and shooting slash are all up from her freshman campaign.

Dayshanette Harris, a fifth-year student-athlete who played four years at Pitt, is having a career year. Harris is scoring 11.9 points per game and is shooting at the best clip of her career. She’s shooting career highs of 48% from the floor and 36% from three-point land.

With seven assists in Clemson’s last game against Louisville, Harris, a four-year starter at Pitt, set a new career high for most assists in a season. Her 25 points in that same game also set a new season high and were just two points shy of tying her career high that she set against Boston College in 2020.
