This time of year it is all about trying to get into the Tournament. Virginia is in but Clemson needs something big to show they belong. This would qualify.
The Cavs are looking to finish the season strong to set up a top seed for themselves. There is a lot of competition at the top so they can’t afford a slip.
Clemson looked like they were definitely going to break through early but they have not been great over the last month of action.
The Cavs could be primed for a letdown after a big home win over UNC on the weekend. They won an uptempoish kind of game which is not their style.
The win was a nice show for top player Malcolm Brogdon. He scored 26 points and showed he can have “that kind” of game and lead the team to victory. They can’t always drag the scoring down where they want it.
In the contest they got next to nothing from their bench which is a dangerous trend if they are going to go deep in the ACC or NCAA Tournaments. And that was with Mike Tobey coming off the bench too.
Virginia has just a couple of games left in the regular season and they are a game out of first so they have a shot. Though it doesn’t look likely.
Even though they are second in the conference they are the highest ranked team in the ACC. It looks like they will finish the season that way.
The Tigers are having one of those “in any other conference” seasons. They are 9-7 in the ACC but at 16-12 overall they are not quite a lock for the Big Dance.
A win over Virginia would be huge and they should have some confidence heading into this one given that they lost by just 7 points in Charlottesville.
Clemson has one of the most underrated players in the game in Jaron Blossongame. Finally healthy he is delivering on his impressive skill set pacing the team in scoring and rebounding.
The key is always who else steps up in support. None of the perimeter players for the Tigers is having a good season so sometimes this group really struggles to score.
As a result this group has no choice but to be a strong defensive squad. Mission accomplished, they are giving up only 64ppg.

Free Virginia Cavaliers vs. Clemson Tigers CBB Prediction:
The Tigers hung with the Cavs on the road so the logic says they could close the gap at home. I am just not seeing it though.
Maybe they can catch Virginia coming off the high of their weekend win and napping early but I wouldn’t bank on it.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Cavaliers ATS
This one might be close early but Virginia will pull away. A halftime wager is looking pretty interesting too.
