The Tigers have a better record inside the ACC (9-5) than outside (7-5). At No. 96 in the RPI, Clemson still has a lot of work to do to get into the NCAA field. The problem for Clemson is three of its next four games will be against Tuesday play-in teams in the ACC tournament. Amazingly, the Tigers could go 12-6 in the ACC and not have enough good wins to make the NCAA tournament.
