Clemson hopes stingy defense travels with Tigers to Omaha

In as thorough a beating as this March’s NCAA Tournament has seen to date, Clemson moved on to the Sweet 16 in the Midwest, in large part, by stymying Auburn’s offense at an alarming rate. The ACC’s Tigers advanced to a regional semifinal versus Kansas with a 31-point victory over the SEC’s regular-season co-champion in San Diego, on Sunday. During the drubbing, Clemson (25-9) limited Auburn to 19 first-half points and 25.8-percent shooting for the game. By Benton Smtih
