The Clemson women’s basketball is set to face off against Charleston Southern in its second game of the season at Littlejohn Coliseum on Friday night.

Clemson (1-0) is coming into the game with a boost of confidence after a resounding 71-41 victory against Winthrop University earlier this week. The Tigers’ win showcased their strengths on the court, displaying great teamwork and offensive prowess as they look to carry that momentum into this matchup.

Leading the charge for Clemson in the last game was forward Amari Robinson, who scored 22 points. Closely following Robinson was Maddi Cluse, an aggressive presence in the paint, who scored 14 points and grabbed seven rebounds last game.

The Buccaneers will also need to keep an eye on standout forward MaKayla Elmore, who had seven rebounds and two assists in Monday’s win over Winthrop. Their contributions will be pivotal to Clemson’s success on the court in the game.

On the other side of the court, Charleston Southern (0-1) is eager to grab its first win after its recent 99-63 loss to No. 18 Florida State. Clemson will need to pay attention to players like Alba Garcia, a dominant guard who scored a career-high 19 points last game and shot 5 of 7 from beyond the arc.

Madison Adamson is another name to know, a playmaking guard who recorded eight rebounds against the Seminoles. Forward Kennedi Jackson, who scored 11 points last game, and senior guard Jordan Berry, who had five assists in the Buccaneers’ previous contest, will also give the Tigers’ defense much to cover.

The Tigers will need to ensure they remain in possession of the ball, as mistakes led to 15 turnovers against Winthrop. Charleston Southern turned the ball over 30 times against Florida State, meaning improvement in ball handling will be pivotal in the upcoming game for both teams.

Both teams will look to make a statement and utilize their key players in the matchup, with tipoff set for Friday at 7 p.m.
