Time: 12:00 noon

Date: January 12, 2013
Place: Littlejohn Coliseum
TV: ACC Network, ESPN3
Radio: Virginia Sports Radio Network

Spread: Clemson -1; Pomeroy: UVA 52-50 (60%)
Last Meeting: Winning 65-61 in Charlottesville, Losing 60-48 at Clemson

Both teams are looking to break a streak today. The Hoos have lost three straight at Clemson. Clemson is looking to avoid an 0-3 ACC start.

Expect a low, low scoring game today, as Clemson's pace has slowed pretty significantly in recent years. First one to 50 will likely earn the victory. Expect Clemson to bring the heat on defense, hands swatting at the ball at all times. For Virginia on defense, the pack-line defense will play a big role. If the Hoos can force Clemson to take long shots and keep them from getting inside the paint, Virginia will be sitting in a good position.
