The Deacs travel south for a pre-Super Bowl game against a team that they haven’t beaten since Danny Manning was hired as head coach. The player to watch from Clemson is senior guard Marcquise Reed, who is averaging 19.6 points per game this season. He has a habit of playing well against the Deacs—in his 3 career games against Wake Forest, Reed is averaging a little over 21 points per game. Noon starts can be rough (looking at you, NC State), so hopefully the Deacs will be awake and ready when the game tips off.
After the game, you can check out the women’s team on ACC Network Extra as they take on #24 Florida State at 2:00pm.
