The Clemson basketball team is already battling the weather and tomorrow , weather permitting fo course, they will battle Virginia Tech in Blacksburg.
The team left a day early to beat the snowstorm that is pounding the Mid-Atlantic area this weekend. They made it to their hotel safely and have a practice scheduled for later this afternoon. Tigers coach Oliver Purnell told us during a conference call that he does not expect tomorrow’s game to be postponed or cancelled because both teams are in town and near the arena. The game is slated to tip at 4:00.

Purnell said point guard Demontez Stitt has been going through portions of practice and he is going to test his foot again during today’s workout. They are hopeful he will be able to play some tomorrow against the Hokies. Stitt has missed two straight games because of the foot sprain.
Virginia Tech is 17-4 and 4-3 in the ACC. They are coming off a home win against North Carolina last night. The Tigers are 16-6 and 4-4 in the conference.
