The Last Meeting

Demon Deacons Fall 78-58 to Tigers
Wake Forest hung around through the half, but an early second half run and some hot-shooting ultimately doomed the Demon Deacons in a 78-58 loss to Clemson on Saturday, February 11 at the Lawrence Joel Coliseum.
Clemson (9-6, 1-2 ACC) is coming off a 59-44 win over Virginia on Saturday at Littlejohn Coliseum. The Tigers broke open a close game by shooting a torrid 76.9 percent from the field in the second half.
Wake Forest leads the all-time series with Clemson 98-55. The Tigers have won three straight in the series, including two wins last season.
The Deacons have still won 10 of the past 15 meetings and 17 of the last 23, dating back to the 1998-99 season.
Wake Forest is 19-23 at Littlejohn Coliseum since the venue opened in 1968. The Deacons have won seven of their last 12 games at the arena.
Wake Forest will play at Virginia Tech on Saturday, Jan. 19, at 2 p.m. The Hokies are 10-6 overall and 1-2 in the ACC. The Hokies, who snapped a four-game losing streak with Saturday's defeat of Georgia Tech, are idle during the mid-week before hosting the Deacons.
The Deacons will then return home to host in-state rival NC State (14-2, 3-0 ACC) on Tuesday, Jan. 22, at 7 p.m.
