Despite a historic season, the Tigers stumbled to the finish line, losing four of their last six games. The Tigers will face No. 12 New Mexico State in the first round on Friday in San Diego.

The selection ends the third-longest active NCAA Tournament drought among major conference teams behind Rutgers (since 1991) and TCU (since 1998). Fans will be notified by 5 p.m. if their order will be fulfilled. That's when USC will find out if its 17-16 season will be extended. He leads the team in blocks with 71 (2.2 per game).

The last time Clemson was in the big dance, the program also advanced to the ACC Tournament semifinals. First off, they have to worry about a talented Aggies team. He missed nine of 10 tries from 3-point range against the most suffocating defense in the country. The Tigers won three tournament games under head coach Bill Foster and reached the Elite Eight of the tournament before losing to UCLA. Zach Lofton (19.7) is the man to watch for NMSU. "They're relentless the way they play, and that's the way we have to play to be good". We have to hit the reset button and play how we can, and we shouldn't have a problem at all.

"He's just all heart, and he'll do whatever you ask", Bennett said.

"I think a risky team on this board is New Mexico State", Davis daid. "We have a lot confidence, our bodies are pretty healthy and I think our mental fatigue is pretty good".

Senior Gabe DeVoe is third in scoring this season with a 13.2 average. "We are going to come out there, compete and give it all that we got". I'll continue to say it: "Whoever beats this team, they're going to have to knock them out because this team has developed a toughness about them".

The first Clemson Tiger from the state of Texas, junior Elijah Thomas, is almost averaging a double-double with 10.8 points and 7.9 rebounds per game.

Auburn was one of a record eight SEC teams to make the field, along with Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Missouri, Texas A&M, regular-season co-champion Tennessee and conference tournament champion Kentucky.

They haven't been able to solve Virginia, though. No. 5 Clemson (23-9). We like the Tigers to win this game. Like Auburn (who is without center Anfernee McLemore), Clemson will be without a key frontcourt player in Donte Grantham, who tore his ACL 14 games into the season.

"I'm definitely looking forward to it", junior guard Bryce Brown said. "I think we're playing as well as we have all year long, which is, obviously, what any coach in America shoots for". That's all I got.

The Aggies clinched the NCAA Tournament berth, their 21st in program history, with a 72-58 win over Grand Canyon in the Western Athletic Conference Tournament championship Saturday night in Las Vegas, Nev.
