Clemson is the new top-ranked team in the country, slipping past last week’s BR-1 Wake Forest. As the Tigers get ready to compete in the ACC semifinals today, here’s everything you need to know about the Tigers.
Clemson has a cache of talented athletes on its roster this season and on any given day, anyone can put the ball in the back of the net. T.J. Casner leads the offensive unit with 8 goals and 3 assists on the year for a total of 19 points. He’s taken 35 shots with 17 of them landing on goal and has notched 5 game-winners. Right behind him on the ledger is Kyle Murphy, who has 7 goals and 4 assists, and Austen Burnikel, who has 7 goals and 2 assists. Diego Campos leads the team in shots with 63 — 25 of which have landed on goal — though he has scored just 3 times and has dished off 4 assists. Other scorers include Oliver Shannon (5 goals, 3 assists), Iman Mafi (3 goals, 5 assists), Thales Moreno (3 goals, 1 assist), Paul Clowes (2 goals, 1 assist), Saul Chinchilla (1 goal 4 assists), Michael Melvin (2 goals) and Kyle Fisher (1 goal, 1 assist).
