Streak: Duke has won the last two meetings


• The win over Louisville gave the Clemson program a win over a school coached by a member of the Naismith Memorial Hall of Fame for a third straight season. The Tigers previously beat Mike Krzyzewski’s Duke in 2014 and Jim Boeheim’s Syracuse team in 2015.

• Clemson is in search of a second straight win over a top-25 team, a feat that has not been achieved by the program since March 1 and 4, 1989. That season, the Tigers beat No. 9 Duke and No. 25 Georgia Tech in back to back games to conclude the ACC regular season.

• The Tigers made 32 free throws in the win over Louisville, most by a Brad Brownell coached team in 179 games.
