Jan. 16, 2027: Boston College Eagles (11-4, 3-3) vs #6-ranked Clemson Tigers (14-3, 3-3) at Littlejohn Coliseum in Clemson, SC
1st Assistant Coach David Woodruff
Losing at home to North Carolina State last week was a real downer. Both games this week are on the road starting with tonight’s game against the 6th ranked Clemson. The Tigers ACC record is just 3-3, but all 3 losses were close games. They’re led by freshman C Williams Yeaton. Yeaton is living up to the hype (he was the 6th ranked recruit nationally last year). He’s averaging 25.9 ppg, 10.6 rpg, 4.3 apg, 2.7 bpg, and 3.9 spg. He’s scored 20+ points in 12 ga mes and over 30 points in 6 of those 12 games. Fellow freshman SG Lou Robinson is averaging 15.1 ppg. Clemson is averaging 87.1 ppg. The Tigers are going to score…so we need our offense to catch fire and not fizzle out.
One thing about the ACC is that there are several teams that have a great player, like Clemson does with Williams Yeaton, who can carry a team. You’re not going to stop them, you just have to try to limit the amount of damage they inflict upon you. Williams is an intimidator offensively, defensively and on the boards. We will try to deny the ball to him, but in doing so I have the feeling we’re going to pick up a lot of fouls. Since we need Courtland Reese on the court (and not riding the bench due to foul trouble), we’ll have to use our PF’s to do a lot of the guarding of Yeaton in a way we can spread the expected fouls to several of our interior guys.
And so the game began: After 4 minutes we trailed 14-4 and PF Marvin Reese had picked up 2 fouls. Clemson kept pouring in points while we made too many turnovers. At the midpoint of the half we were down by a 27-14 score and Yeaton already had scored 11 points. The Tigers outshot us 62% to 32% and also forced us to turn the ball over 14 times in the half. We were far behind at 51-30 at the end of the half. Yeaton scored 18 points in the half.
Clemson continued to rip the net in the 2nd half and blow by us. Midway through the half we were behind 76-47. We were unable to sustain a challenge and got whomped by the Tigers 84-57. We were simply outclassed by the talented Tigers.
PG Josh McFadgon scored 13, SF Sam Dickens had 11 points, and C Courtland Reese scored 9 while pulling down 10 rebounds. Clemson’s C Williams Yeaton finished with 22 points and 6 rebounds.
