May 23, 2001

CLEMSON – After winning one of their three games last week in the ACC Tournament in Fort Mill, SC, the Clemson Tigers fell in all three polls released on Monday.

Clemson slipped to its lowest collective ranking of the season, falling four spots, from 15th to 19th in the Baseball America poll. The Tigers dipped three spots, from 17th to 20th, in the Baseball Weekly/ESPN coaches poll and fell just one spot, from 13th to 14th in the Collegiate Baseball poll.

Clemson lost the opening game of the tournament 7-3 to Virginia and then rebounded to eliminate North Carolina with a 7-6 win. On Friday, Florida State, the tournament’s top seed, bounced the Tigers from the tournament with a 5-4 decision.

The Tigers open play in the NCAA Regionals this Friday with a 7:00 PM game against William & Mary at Doug Kingsmore Stadium.
