KEY GAME INFORMATION
CLEMSON: Last season: 17-16, sixth straight season without an NCAA Tournament appearance.
Who's gone: G Jaron Blossomgame (senior), G Avry Holmes (senior), F-C Sidy Djitte (senior).
Who's back: F Donte Grantham. The senior struggled some last year and hopes to rebound after his scoring average dropped from double digits as a sophomore to seven points. F Elijah Thomas. The Texas A&M transfer played the second half of the season after sitting out and averaged seven points and four rebounds. G Shelton Mitchell, a Vanderbilt transfer who is the team's top returning scorer at more than 10 points a game, but bothered by a knee problem. G Marcquise Reed is a Robert Morris transfer who averaged 10 points a game in his first season at Clemson.
Who's new: F David Skara. A junior who transferred from Valparaiso and has won praise from Brownell as Clemson's best defender. F Mark Donnal. A Michigan graduate transfer, Donnal helped the Wolverines to the NCAA Tournament the past two seasons. F Aamir Simms. A freshman from Palmyra, Virginia is 6-7 expected to give the Tigers a reliable dual-threat inside and out.
The Skinny: Brad Brownell has held on to his job because he's a strong ambassador for the program and instrumental in the refurbished Littlejohn Coliseum that opened last year. He knows the pressure to make the NCAAs is there and needs to have a healthy Mitchell at point guard to make that happen.
VIRGINIA TECH: Last season: 22-11, lost to Wisconsin in first round of NCAA Tournament.
Who's gone: F Zach LeDay, G Seth Allen, G Ty Outlaw, Khadim Sy
Who's back: G/F Chris Clarke, eventually. The Hokies' most athletic player sustained a torn ACL last season and, depending on who you talk to, could be ready for the start of the season, or not at all. He averaged 11.4 points and 7.3 rebounds and provides boundless energy. G Ahmed Hill. He also averaged 11.4 points and was second on the team with 59 3-pointers, which have always been a big part of the offense for what always seems to be a undersized team, and is again.
Who's new: True freshmen Wabissa Bede, Nickeil Alexander-Walker and P.J. Horne and redshirt freshman Tyrie Jackson are all being counted on to boost the Hokies' outside shooting and provide depth to a team that has only six returnees with experience in the rigors of ACC play.
The Skinny: Virginia Tech basically outscored people last season, but is less likely to be able to do that this year. Williams has pledged an increased emphasis on defense, and while his players seem on board, the absence of experienced depth or proven defensive stoppers will make last year's success hard to replicate.
PREVIEW
No. 15 Clemson looks to rebound vs. Virginia Tech
 

When Clemson travels to Blacksburg, Va., on Wednesday, the team will be without its starting point guard.

Shelton Mitchell has been in the concussion protocol since getting hit in the head in the final minutes of last week's 81-79 loss to Florida State.

"He's not ready," Clemson coach Brad Brownell said Tuesday afternoon, according to the Greenville (S.C.) News. "We're hopeful that he'll be fine by the weekend, but he needs to be able to do some more things so we're going to leave him back here I think and just let him have a couple more days, which I think is a good decision. We'll just have to push forward without him."

The No. 15 Tigers (20-6, 9-5 ACC), who are coming off consecutive losses for the first time this season, will face a Virginia Tech team that has won three of its past four games, including a 61-60 victory over No. 1 Virginia.

Mitchell missed Sunday's 66-57 loss to Duke.

"Our guys just want to go play well," Brownell said. "We've been playing extremely hard. I told our team yesterday that last week was one of those weeks where sometimes you work hard in life and it doesn't always pay off in wins. That's the hard thing about sports.

"I thought our guys had great preparation in our practices all last week. We competed extremely hard in both games, but had a lot of basketball errors and that cost us opportunities for two wins, but I'm proud of the way our guys have stayed focused."

The 3-1 stretch for the Hokies (19-8, 8-6) began with point guard Devin Wilson's return to the starting lineup.

Wilson, who started for Virginia Tech in his first two years, had spent most of this season as a backup.

"The way my career has gone has allowed me to see the darkness and the light of college basketball and college athletics in general," Wilson told The Roanoke (Va.) Times. "I'm thankful for that, to be honest. Things have switched around. I'm playing a lot more now.

"I try to be that defensive presence and that leadership presence that we might need."

Wilson, then playing for coach James Johnson, made the ACC's all-freshman team after the 2013-14 season.

But when Buzz Williams replaced Johnson in March 2014, player and coach didn't see eye to eye.

"I've never went from disliking a player as much as I did when I first got here to the respect that I have for him," Williams told the Times.

Wilson saw his points per game drop from 9.2 as a freshman to 6.5 as a sophomore and then to 2.1 as a reserve junior. He is averaging 3.1 points this season.

"He blatantly told me ... he didn't like me," Wilson said. "I kind of looked at him like, 'Okay, well, I'm not going anywhere, so you're going to either like me or you're just going to hate me for the rest of my career.'

"That's what's special about our bond. There's not much words said. We don't really text that much or call each other on the phone every night like he might with other players, but we have a great mutual respect."

Perhaps the two are just too similar.

"My game kind of fits his style -- get to the rim, get fouled, play hard all the time. So, it must have been my personality," Wilson said. "I'm very much like him. I'm bull-headed. I'm very honest with how I feel about things. If I think you're wrong, I'm going to tell you.

"He didn't not like me for long. ... He told me, actually, when we were in training camp of my sophomore year, 'I'm starting to like you, Dev.'"
