Tigers move up in AP Poll

After getting wins over North Carolina and Wake Fores last week, Clemson moved up four spots to No. 16 in the latest Associated Press basketball poll which was released on Monday.

This is the sixth straight week the Clemson men have been ranked in the AP Poll after going nearly eight years without being ranked.

The Tigers beat then No. 19 UNC at home last Tuesday to snap a 10-game losing streak to the Tar Heels. They followed that up with an eight-point win at Wake Forest on Saturday.

Clemson (19-4, 8-3 ACC) is off to its best start in the ACC since the 1996-’97 season. The Tigers currently sit second in the ACC standings behind No. 2 Virginia.
