The Clemson vs South Carolina basketball game will take place tonight. Here is all the info you need to know to watch, listen, or stream the game live.
The Clemson vs South Carolina basketball game will take place tonight and will give the Tigers a chance to pick up a marquee win in Greenville, which would go a long way in helping with the confidence of the team and such going forward. Let’s take a look at the match-up and what to expect from the Clemson vs South Carolina game.
The Gamecocks come into the game ranked #25 in the USA Today Coaches Poll and are just outside the AP Poll. They are undefeated to this point in the season and are looking like legitimate contenders to make the NCAA Tournament and go far in the SEC. To be honest, the only teams better than the Gamecocks in the SEC are most likely Kentucky and possibly Texas A&M. Frank Martin has done a great job coaching and building a program down in Columbia and this would be a great win for Clemson basketball Friday night.
Players to Watch:
We know what we have from a Clemson perspective, but here is what you can expect from the Gamecocks. South Carolina is led by senior forward Mindaugas Kacinas, who is averaging a team-high 13.3 points per game and 6.3 rebounds. You will also see Laimonas Chatkevicius, who is averaging right around 13 points, as well.

If Clemson basketball wants a shot at winning, they need to stop these two players from getting their points. That means that Donte Grantham and Jaron Blossomgame will be relied up heavily on both the offensive and defensive sides of the ball.
Keys to the Game:
- Play solid defense
- Don’t force it if it’s not there
- Shoot the three
To get the win Friday night, it’s pretty simple for Clemson basketball: Play good defense, don’t turn the ball over, and shoot well from three. The Tigers need to come out with their best defensive performance of the season. If they play solid defense and shoot well from three, I believe Clemson will have a chance to win this ballgame.
