Records: Clemson 14-3 (2-1 ACC); N.C. State 12-5 (1-2)

Player to watch: Scott Wood. After scoring 31 points on the road against Florida State, all eyes are on the freshman shooter to see what he does for an encore. Lost in all his scoring, he had seven rebounds, two steals and two assists against FSU for a complete performance.

Observations: How will Clemson handle success? It's coming off a 19-point win over UNC. It will be a test for Oliver Purnell to keep his team focused on the preseason pick for last place. ... Wolfpack coach Sidney Lowe is winless against only two ACC teams: Maryland (0-5) and Clemson (0-4).
