PJ Hall (Center) vs. Ja’Kobe Walter (Guard)

PJ Hall is undoubtedly the number one factor making a difference for the Clemson Tigers in the current season. He has played in 32 games so far, averaging 18.8 points per game. His offensive prowess does not end only with the higher scoring (6.7 per game), he also gives out significant rebounds (1.6 per game), which makes him a force to reckon with both offensively and defensively. Nonetheless, consistency in crucial moments and maintaining his three-point shot percentage are a must for this matchup to be successful.

On the contrary, the Baylor Bears have Ja’Kobe Walter as the most perfect guard in the group, playing all positions and being a shooter. Walter emerges as the scorer of the team with 14.2 points per game and 34% accuracy from the three. Therefore, his long-range shooting opens up the game and challenges defenses on Baylor’s offense. He will also bring a defensive presence, where he averages 1.1 steals per game, to Clemson’s constant ball penetration.

The duel between these two main actors in the game is not only about the score an individual makes but also on how they can push the game forward in relation to the pacing of the game and how the momentum of the game shifts. Hall being an effective post player surrounding Walter who is a good outside shot taker will be an intriguing storyline that could influence the pace of play and tactics of the teams.
