FSU at Clemson

When/where: 4; Littlejohn Coliseum, Clemson, S.C.

TV/radio: ESPN2; 1040-AM

Records: FSU 9-5; Clemson 8-6

Notable: This is the ACC opener for both schools. Last season, FSU won 75-69 at home to start conference play. "Stakes are higher once you start conference play," FSU coach Leonard Hamilton said. "Typical ACC road game against a team that you've got to be at your best in order to win."… FSU is coming off an 85-56 win over Auburn in which the usually defensive-minded Seminoles crashed the offensive glass. G Michael Snaer, who scored 22 against Auburn, is FSU's leading scorer at 13.6 per game. … The Tigers are 15-7 all time against FSU at home. PG Andre Young averages a team-best 12.9 points. Inside, F Devin Booker averages 11.1 points and 6.9 rebounds.
