CLEMSON, SC – The Clemson women’s basketball team will play host to Boston College (7-7, 1-2 ACC) on Sunday at 1:00 pm in a game that will be televised on RSN (affiliates).

Additionally, the Orange Brigade will hold a meeting after the game on concourse level.
Boston College has won two in a row in the series and holds a 6-2 lead in the all-time series. The Tigers will make a return trip to Chestnut Hill in February, the first time that the two schools are scheduled to meet twice in the same season.
