ACC basketball capsules: Miami vs. Clemson
Wednesday, Jan. 18
Clemson (9-8, 1-2) at Miami (9-6, 0-2)
When: 7 p.m.
Where: Coral Gables, FL, BankUnited Center (7,000)
Fast break: This matchup pits a pair of former CAA coaches going head to head for the first time since 2006. Clemson doesn’t have the talent or quality depth to keep up with the Hurricanes if Miami plays focused and intense hoops. Johnson and Kadji inside present real problems for the Tigers, who can only overcome it by draining more 3-pointers than they usually do. Key game for Miami if it’s to make a push for an NCAA bid.
Forecast: Miami, 71-62.
Andrew Jones’ record: 141-34
