Minnesota has faced Clemson twice in the Big Ten / ACC Challenge. Both games were at home in Williams Arena with Clemson defeating the Gophers in 2006 and Minnesota winning in 2015. Overall the Gophers are 3-2-1 against the Tigers.
Last year’s Clemson squad made it to the NIT where they won their first game before losing to Wichita State. Like the Gophers they lose their top 2 leading scorers and their leading rebounder. So both teams will be looking for replaced production and should be figuring themselves out early in the season.
