this article. 


Men’s basketball:

What has happened: Clemson’s four-game winning streak was snapped this past Wednesday with an overtime loss on the road against Florida State. Shelton Mitchell suffered a concussion in the loss, and his status moving forward has still not been determined. The Tigers hosted Duke this past Sunday in Littlejohn Coliseum. Clemson was ranked No. 11 in the AP poll as of last week. If the Tigers can wrap up ACC play in good shape, they can secure a double-bye in the upcoming ACC Tournament beginning on March 6.
