Clemson basketball has moved up once again in the polls and is on the verge of being in the top 10.

The Tigers are No. 11 in the AP poll and No. 12 in the coaches poll. A win over Florida State and Duke this week and Clemson should find its way in the top 10.

Clemson is just ahead of Duke, North Carolina, and Kansas in the AP poll. Another notable team in the top 10 is Ohio State at No. 8. The Tigers beat the Buckeyes by 14 on the road earlier in the season, which is now one of the biggest wins on any tournament resume.

Just like a week ago, this is the highest ranking for the Tigers since Brad Brownell took over as head coach. Clemson was No. 16 in the AP poll last Monday.

The Tigers are 20-4, 9-3 in the ACC and play at Florida State Wednesday at 7:00 PM.
