CLEMSON, S.C. – The Clemson women’s basketball will travel to Chestnut Hill, MA to take on Boston College on Thursday at 7:00 pm at the Silvio O. Conte Forum. The Lady Tigers (6-17, 2-10 ACC) are in search of a third ACC road win of the season when they take on the Eagles (6-19, 1-11 ACC), who are coming off their first conference win of the season over Virginia Tech. The game will be broadcast on the Clemson Tiger Sports Network, and is available on the web for a fee at The Lady Tigers have just four regular season games remaining before the ACC Tournament on Mar. 1, and this game will have major seeding implications for both Clemson and Boston College. The game will conclude a two-week stretch that will have sent the Lady Tigers on the road for four of the past five games and nearly 4,000 air miles with trips to Miami, FL, Blacksburg, VA, Charlottesville, VA, and now Chestnut Hill, MA.Clemson will play at home against Wake Forest (Feb. 19, 2:00 pm) and again in senior day against Florida State (Feb. 23, 7:00 pm) in a televised game. Clemson closes the regular season on Feb. 26 against Georgia Tech in Atlanta. Boston College holds a 5-2 advantage in the all-time series, including a 3-0 mark at home. Clemson last defeated the Eagles during the 2009-10 season, 68-65, in Littlejohn Coliserum behind then-sophomore Shaniqua Pauldo’s 24 points in 27 minutes. Lele Hardy had 18 points, 13 rebounds, and five steals in that game also. This season, Nikki Dixon leads the team and is second among all freshmen in scoring at 13.0 points per game, including a 15.2 per game average over the last eight games. During that time, she has claimed two ACC Rookie of the Week honors. Her 298 points so far is the most by a Clemson freshman since Hardy’s 349 in 2006-07, and her scoring average is the highest by a freshman since Cheron Wells’ 14.1 per game average in 1990-91.Another milestone watch is that of Lindsey Mason’s shot-blocking. The senior has already shot up to second in school history with 151 career blocked shots. She has 60 this season, which puts her just outside the school’s top-five single season list, and is the most in a season since the 1990-91 season, when Jackie Farmer also had 60. The school record is 84 by Peggy Caple in 1982-83.
