The Clemson Tiger basketball team opened up conference play Saturday afternoon with a 71-66 loss to Florida State at Little John Coliseum.  Getting the conference record back to even will be a difficult task Tuesday night as the Tigers will hit the road and head to Durham, North Carolina, to take on the number 1 team in the nation, the Duke Blue Devils.

You have to go all the way back to November the last time the undefeated Blue Devils had somebody test them enough to get within ten points.  Then 4th ranked Ohio State went down to Duke 73-68 on November 28th.  The Devils opened up ACC play on Saturday as well, beating Wake Forrest 80-62 at home.

The Tigers and Blue Devils will tip-off at 7:00 at Cameron Indoor Stadium.  The game will be televised by ESPNU.
