What to watch for

Today's game will be a matchup of the ACC's leader in 3-point attempts (Miami) and the league's best 3-point defense (Clemson). The Tigers have held their past nine opponents under .333 shooting on 3-pointers. Clemson could help its case by repeating the 8-for-20, 3-point shooting night it had in Wednesday's victory against Florida State.

Bottom line

Clemson got 33 points from its bench in the victory against FSU as Devin Booker came off the bench to outscore brother Trevor, 14-13. That was the most points from Clemson's bench since December's win against College of Charleston. Another big night from the bench would go a long way toward helping the Tigers beat Miami.
