The Nebraska basketball team will play Clemson next season as part of the Big Ten/ACC Challenge. The November 30th game at Clemson’s Littlejohn Coliseum will be the first ever meeting between the schools.
Clemson finished 17-14 overall and tied for seventh in the ACC with a 10-8 record for Coach Brad Brownell. The Tigers tied a school record with 10 ACC wins and had three consecutive wins over ranked teams (Louisville, Duke and Miami). The Tigers could have three starters returning in 2016-17, including first-team All-ACC forward Jaron Blossomgale (18.7 ppg, 6.7 rpg), as he has not made a decision after declaring for the NBA Draft. Blossomgale is potentially one of three returning double-figure scorers for the Tigers, as Donte Grantham (10.2 ppg; 4.1 apg) and Avry Holmes (10.0 ppg; 2.8 rpg) are also back for the Tigers.
The Huskers have played well in the Big Ten/ACC Challenge under Miles, going 3-1 in four previous appearances, including road wins at Wake Forest (2012) and at Florida State (2014). The Huskers are one of three current Big Ten programs with winning records in the Big Ten/ACC Challenge.
