CLEMSON, S.C. – The Clemson Tigers women’s basketball team (11-13, 4-8) returns home to the friendly confines of Littlejohn Coliseum where it will face off against its longtime ACC rival, the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets (14-11, 5-8).

The Tigers are winners of three of their last four outings, holding their opponents to less than 70 points in each of those three wins.

Clemson enters the game shorthanded with three rotation players unavailable to play. Maddi Cluse had season-ending knee surgery, Mackenzie Kramer is out with an illness and no timetable on her return, and Danielle Rauch is recovering from a banged up elbow. Despite the injuries, the Tigers still nearly won on the road in Miami and took the Hurricanes all the way to overtime, falling by just three points.

Amari Robinson is cementing her legacy as a Tiger legend with the best season of her storied career. She leads the Tigers this season in scoring (17.6 ppg) and rebounding (6.8 rpg) and is one of the most efficient scorers in the country. Amari is the ACC leader in true shooting percentage (.639) and effective field goal percentage (.591).

Robinson currently ranks fourth in Tiger history with 1,785 career points. She needs 11 more to move into third place. Her 905 career rebounds are good enough for fourth-most in Tigers history, and she needs 28 rebounds to surpass Lele Hardy for third-most.

With 648 career field goals, Robinson has scored the sixth-most field goals in program history. With four more buckets, Robinson will move past Mary Anne Cubelic for fifth place. Her 412 made free throws are the third most out of any Tiger player. With four more conversions from the charity stripe, Robinson will surpass Barbara Kennedy Dixon for second place.

Dayshanette Harris, a fifth-year student-athlete who played four years at Pitt, is having a career year. Harris is scoring 13 points per game and is shooting at the best clip of her career. She’s shooting a career-highs of 46% from the floor, 35% from three-point range, and is ranked fourth in the nation in assist percentage (42.7).

Harris had one of the best games of her career in Clemson’s win against Virginia. She nearly recorded a triple-double as she racked up 23 points, nine assists, eight rebounds, and drew an astounding 15 fouls. She also made a career-high 11 free throws.

Over Clemson’s last seven games, Harris has taken her game to another level and is leading the Tigers in points per game (17.7), assists per game (5.4), steals per game (2.3), and has scored at least 20 points in four of those outings.
