It’s been a few years, but Clemson returns to the NCAA Tournament tonight. A surprise season sees Clemson heading to San Diego as the #5 seed. Their opponent, the #12 seed New Mexico State Aggies.
Tip-Off: 9:57 pm EST (May be delayed depending on the previous game)
TV Channel: TruTV (Good luck finding the channel on your cable provider)
As we all know it is trendy to pick the 12 seed to upset the 5 seed, and it seems like almost every pundit in college basketball is picking New Mexico State to win this one. I’m ok with that, it gives Clemson a chip on their shoulder and reminds them that they can’t just show up and expect to win. As we saw last night with Buffalo walloping Arizona, the little guy can win if you aren’t prepared.
If Clemson wins this one they’ll play the winner of Auburn - Charleston on Sunday evening, likely as the late game once again. As always join us below in the comments as Clemson looks to get out of the first round for the first time in 7 games.
