Eagles beat Clemson, avoids winless ACC schedule
This isn't the same as beating a No. 1 North Carolina, but tonight's win over Clemson is an important step. I am glad the team avoided a winless ACC season. I trust Donahue and a 0-16 ACC season would have created a ton of baggage. With that out of the way, let's get another two or three. Here are my thoughts:
-- Lonnie Jackson hitting 3s. If the other team gives him a little space and a little time, he is dangerous from out there.
-- Defensive rebounding. One of the reasons Clemson could score for stretches were due to our defensive rebounding.
-- Dennis Clifford close to the basket. He looked good down on the block. You can see how he might blossum as he gets used to the speed of the ACC.
-- Not converting on Free Throws. With a team full of shooters, we need to get to at least .500 from the line.
-- Humphrey's turnovers. Humphrey had another good game but was too sloppy at times with the ball.
-- Heckmann's minutes. I know our other wing players got hot, but Heckmann needs to play more than 12 minutes.
