Thoughts and pics from Clemson
This could be a long month. In a game that mirrored much of what happened in Chapel Hill, the team just couldn't capitalize on Clemson's off night shooting and had trouble with the Tiger's D. It all comes back to the inside. The rebounding was poor and no one is really able to create anything close to the basket. That leaves Rice and Sanders to make things happen on the perimeter and led to a few shot clock violations. The most encouraging part is seeing Southern continue to play and exert himself. We need someone inside who can rebound and get some scrappy points. We've given the older guys a shot, so we might as well see what Southern can do. Also, let me say that the four freshmen who play are all doing well. This will come together. I just hope it happens this season, not next.
Here are my pictures from the game. As always, the Clemson fans couldn't have been cooler.
