Clemson comes into this game as a pretty heavy favorite to win, but they were lucky to get by UAB in their last game. Davidson beat a solid Maryland team on Friday and they have played excellent defense through two games this year. Clemson is only averaging 32.5 rebounds per game, while Davidson is grabbing 41 rebounds per game. I like how Davidson played against Maryland and I think they could keep this game close, especially given the fact Clemson only beat UAB by one point. Take Davidson and the points here.
