Brad Brownell joined us Thursday night to preview Friday’s matchup with USC.

Friday night Clemson and USC will renew their rivalry on the hardcourt, and both the Tiger and Gamecock programs are seemingly ascending as programs in their respective conferences, adding more intrigue into the rivalry than in years past.

Tuesday night Clemson head coach Brad Brownell joined us live on the program to talk about the matchup but, unfortunately he was out recruiting and strayed too far from the cell phone tower, so our conversation was abruptly cut short.

Thankfully coach was gracious enough to give us another crack at it.  His squad has already made the trip to the Capital City, so he joined us again tonight to break down tomorrow night’s matchup with us one more time.

The Tigers and Gamecocks will tip things off Friday at 7:00 at the Colonial Life Arena.

Later Tuesday night Clemson head coach Brad Brownell was kind enough to join us live on SportsTalk to provide his take on the rivalry game that is only becoming more prominent with the two squad’s rising relevancy within their respective conferences.  Unfortunately, Coach Brownell’s cell phone signal started to fade on the back roads of South Carolina, so our interview was cut short.
