What to Know

The Clemson Tigers have the luxury of staying home another game and will welcome the Bellarmine Knights at 7 p.m. ET Nov. 18 at Littlejohn Coliseum. These two teams come into the matchup bolstered by wins in their previous games.

Clemson strolled past the South Carolina Upstate Spartans with points to spare on Tuesday, taking the game 81-70. The Tigers' success was the result of a balanced attack that saw several players step up, but guard Alex Hemenway led the charge as he had 18 points.

Meanwhile, everything came up roses for Bellarmine at home against the Campbellsville-Harrodsburg Pioneers on Monday as the team secured an 86-46 victory.

Clemson is the favorite in this one, with an expected 12-point margin of victory. But bettors beware: they are 0-3 against the spread when favored.

The wins brought both teams up to an identical 2-1. With back-to-back wins few and far between for both teams -- they're both 0-1 after winning this year -- a win will be a boon for either squad.
