After flirting with defeat several times, the Tigers finally found it Tuesday at Boston College. They’ll find it again Saturday against Miami, as the helium starts to leave the orange balloon.

The ‘Canes are not a great defensive team, but they do run a coherent offense that results in good shots for the right players. Norchad Omier and Jordan Miller do their work inside, Nigel Pack is the primary deep threat and Isaiah Wong is an all-court problem. Miami also doesn’t foul much, which is important against a Clemson team that shoots 80 percent from the line.
