The ACC is an absolute crapshoot right now and Notre Dame and Clemson simply cannot afford a loss when they meet on Monday.
Both teams currently sit at 7-4 in the conference, which is 2 games off the lead, but also in 5th and 6th place.
Notre Dame comes in off easily their biggest win of the season on Saturday night.
With the Tar Heels in town, the #2 team in the nation had a chance to jump to #1 after Oklahoma went down. The Fighting Irish quickly put themselves down 15, but battled back and never put themselves out of it as they eventually went on for a 4 point win.
All 5 starters scored in double figures, with 4 of them doing it alone in the 2nd half as this team got contributions from just about everyone.
Free throws played a solid part as well as the Irish continued to attack the bucket and draw foul after foul. They got to the stripe 24 times in the 2nd half and Demetrius Jackson hit all 9 of his throws.
Jackson finished with 19 points overall and continues to be the leader behind this Notre Dame team. His return from injury as sparked them into a position to really make a push at the ACC Title.
The Tigers have only gone as far as their defense has taken them.
Clemson has held 7 of the last 8 opponents to under 70 points. On the season, the Tigers have allowed just 63.0 points per game, which is top tier in the nation.
However, Clemson couldn’t figure out a way to get their offense going in a 60-57 loss to Virginia Tech on Saturday. With the exception of Landry Nnoko, the Tigers got no contributions. Nnoko finished with 17 points, 12 rebounds, and 8 blocks in the loss.
The rest of the team finished just 13 of 46 from the field.
Look for them to take a page out of the Irish playbook as Clemson is one of the best free throw shooting teams. The Tigers shoot a conference best 80% as a team from the line.

This has the potential to be a big letdown spot for Notre Dame.
After a huge win against UNC, going into Clemson here is a trap waiting to happen.
Clemson has been a solid home team this season and look for them to really attack the bucket and get to the free throw line as they get a huge home win here on Monday.
