CLEMSON, S.C. – The women’s basketball team travels to St. Thomas, USVI this week to take on three foes at the EzyBonds Global Payments Paradise Jam. Clemson (3-1) will play Ohio State (2-2), FGCU (3-1) and Wichita State (2-1) on Thursday through Saturday, respectively.

Clemson plays the Buckeyes at 1:15 p.m. EST Thursday, FGCU at 3:30 p.m. EST Friday and Wichita State at 1:15 p.m. on Saturday before returning to the mainland on Sunday night.

The Tigers are coming off of a 79-69 win over Furman on Sunday when seniors Nikki Dixon and Chelsea Lindsay combined to score 41 points, including the final 21 for Clemson.

There is little history between Clemson and this weeks opponents, as the Tigers have never before met FGCU or Wichita State, and have just one meeting, a 73-67 win over Ohio State in 1983.
