  • Clemson has not lost to Presbyterian since the 1954-55 season in which they lost at home 81-75 and on the road 92-56.

  • Brad Brownell started an all-freshmen backcourt (Al-Amir Dawes & Chase Hunter) for the first time in his Clemson career vs Virginia Tech. The last time two freshmen started a game at Clemson was back in 2004-05. Brownell hasn‘t started a freshman since Donte Grantham in 2014.

  • Dawes and Hunter combined for 18 points in their collegiate debut.

  • Brownell (169-128) is going for his 170th victory at Clemson which would get him within seven victories of tying the Clemson record held by Cliff Ellis (177-128).
