Welcome to the Monday Morning Reset, where we catch you up on what happened over the weekend and what's coming up this week in Clemson athletics.

It was a successful weekend for the Tigers in various sports. 

Brad Brownell and the men's basketball team earned their second top-5 win of the season with an upset of Louisville at Littlejohn Coliseum on Saturday. They get the week off and return to action Saturday at Boston College. 

The Clemson softball team went 5-1 in its first week of home games in program history, including 4-0 in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge. Now they hit the road all week.

Monte Lee and the baseball team got off to a perfect start with a three-game sweep of Liberty at Doug Kingsmore Stadium. The Tigers gave up five runs (four earned) to a Flames team that won 43 games a year ago. Clemson pitchers had 37 strikeouts while the hitters struck out 15 times. 

Clemson baseball has a busy week with five upcoming games, starting with Tuesday's home tilt against The Citadel. 

Spring football practice begins a week from Wednesday, so we'll get you ready for a return to the field for Dabo Swinney's squad with five impact players and Inside the Numbers. 

We'll also take an early look at Clemson's 2020 opponents, five reasons the Tigers will win the national title and five reasons they won't. 

And our recruiting column continues to track Clemson's wants and needs with the 2021 class.
