What to watch:

Point guard Demontez Stitt will try to reach double figures for the fifth consecutive game, which would be a personal best. Generally an erratic jump shooter, Stitt has hit nine of 18 3-pointers the past four games. Clemson has won 26 in a row in the series; the Paladins' last win occurred in the 1977-78 season.

Bottom line

Even if the Tigers are rusty after exams, there is no reason they should not extend their winning streak in the series to 27.
