The Virginia Cavaliers are averaging 68.2 points on 45 percent shooting and allowing 60.5 points on 41.9 percent shooting. Armaan Franklin is averaging 12.6 points and 4.1 rebounds, while Jayden Gardner is averaging 11.9 points and 5.6 rebounds.

The Tigers are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 Friday games and 4-0-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Cavaliers are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 neutral site games and 3-8 ATS in their last 11 Friday games. The over is 7-2 in Tigers last 9 overall. The under is 5-2 in Cavaliers last 7 overall. The underdog is 3-1-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings.

The Clemson Tigers have the defensive effort to steal another game, but they're likely going to have tired legs, and that's not ideal when going up against this Virginia defense. Should be a low pace, low scoring game, but Virginia does what Virginia does and grinds out a victory to advance to the ACC Final.
