Your “Looks Like We Made It” Finale at Clemson Open Thread

finish-line

Ah yes, there’s the finish line ahead…

finishlinecrash

Whooopsie.

Well, the end of the regular season has arroved as the Pack (15-15, 4-13 ACC) hits the road tonight to face the Tiggers of Clemson (14-14, 4-12 ACC).

And while the game may not have the importance of some other games going on as we approach the finish line, it does have the potential to have an effect on our seeding for the ACC Tourney;  and thus our opponent and game time for the Les Robinson round next Tuesday (yes Les has moved up in the world…he now has a whole round dedicated to him instead of just one game).

Like the Pack, Clemson has had a tough go of it of late. Coming into tonight’s game they’ve dropped three straight (FSU, @VT, @Miami) and six of their past seven.

TIGER TRACKS
Jaron Blossomgame needs three field goals to rank in the top 10 in Clemson history in points, rebounds, field goals, free throws, starts, minutes, 10-point games and 20-point games.
• Blossomgame has scored 20 points or better in eight ACC games this season, tied for fourth among all players in the conference.
Sidy Djitte needs just six offensive rebounds to reach 100; he will be the first Tiger to achieve the century mark on the offensive glass over the course of a season since Trevor Booker recorded 107 in 2008-09.
• Djitte is coming off his best ACC game of the year, posting 12 points and nine rebounds in 31 minutes off the bench against No. 19 Florida State.
Shelton Mitchell has scored double figures in eight of the last nine games, and is averaging 12.7 points per game over that stretch.
Elijah Thomas is shooting a team-best 60 percent on field goals this season. It is the highest accuracy by a first-year Clemson player since Trevor Booker shot 60.2 percent as a freshman in 2006-07.

    In order to avoid FCC violations of showing indecent programming, the ND/BC game is being shown in the ATL. That is pretty low. This ain’t the North. But I am making the best of it by having one eye on our game with the laptop while the other game monitors The Archies vs VCU on the TV. Good times

    I’m just happy the rain eased up and the satellite signal came back.
    Though perhaps that was God trying give me a hint to not watch, but he just f-cked up the timing. Meh, Dude’s got a lot going on.

    Gminski already up to his usual condescending self. He says our coach did well at the start but had “dipped” lately. More like he cratered.
