Lipscomb Bisons at Clemson Tigers

  • Spread: Clemson -7
  • Over/Under: 150
  • Time: 3 p.m. ET
  • TV channel: ESPN3

After getting scorched by Mississippi State a few weeks ago, the Tigers (3-9 against the spread) have won three in a row with leading-scorer Marcquise Reed (19.4 points per game) back in the rotation following a knee injury.

The trigger for Clemson’s surge has been enforcing its size. Despite its lesser-tier competition of late, Brad Brownell’s bunch has outrebounded each of its past three opponents while notching six blocks per game. Overall, it ranks No. 27 in the nation in Defensive Rebounding Rate while amassing the 54th-highest Block Rate.
