Clemson Match Notes
CLEMSON, SC – The Clemson volleyball team (3-0) will travel to Florida for four matches beginning on Friday. The Tigers will compete in the Campus USA Credit Union Invite in Gainesville, FL, playing Jacksonville, Florida Atlantic, and the University of Florida. The team then heads down to Orlando for a Sunday showdown with No. 3 Southern California.
The Gators are ranked ninth nationally and host the tournament, which starts on Friday, Sept. 2 with Clemson’s 10:00 am match with Florida Atlantic. Clemson then returns later in the evening to take on Jacksonville at 5:30 pm. The Tigers and Gators play at 4:00 pm in the O’Connell Center on Saturday.
All three tournament matches will have live stats available through ClemsonTigers.com, and Clemson’s match with Florida is available to stream live at gatorzone.tv.
After the match with Florida, the Tigers will get on a bus to take on No. 3 Southern Cal on Sunday at noon at the Orlando Volleyball Academy. They will be in the state after participating in Florida Gulf Coast’s tournament.
It is the first time Clemson has played two top-ten programs in the span of 24 hours in program history.
Clemson and Southern Cal have never met in volleyball, while Clemson holds a 9-0 all-time advantage over Jacksonville, including the 2010 season-opener. Florida has taken both meetings in history over Clemson, both of which occurred in Gainesville. Clemson has defeated Florida Atlantic the only time the programs have met.
Clemson enters with a 3-0 mark after a nearly flawless Big Orange Bash, in which Clemson swept Loyola, Tennessee St., and South Carolina St. on the way to the title. Junior Sandra Adeleye was named MVP, while Mo Simmons and Alexa Rand were named to the All-Tournament team.
