Clemson head coach Monte Lee addressed the media ahead of his team’s practice from the Durham Athletic Park as he prepares his team for their final ACC contest this season.

As he did after yesterday’s 7-5 loss to Boston College, ending the Tigers’ chances of advancing out of Pool A, Lee took responsibility for his team’s recent struggles, “the buck stops with me … certainly, the second half of this season, I haven’t come up with the answers.”

Lee anticipated a high intensity practice that will go “live,” meaning full speed baserunning, defense and live batters. The workout was scheduled for 90 minutes with tomorrow’s game against Louisville set for 11 am.

Louisville squares off with Boston College today at 11 am, so the Cardinals will know whether or not they will be advancing to the weekend in Durham before their game with Clemson. While the Clemson-Louisville game may not carry meaning within the context of the ACC Tournament, it could play a role in determining Clemson’s NCAA Tournament fortunes. Most NCAA Tournament projections have the Tigers firmly on the bubble, and a win over the Cardinals, no. 7 RPI entering Wednesday’s game, could carry weight with the committee.

MONTE LEE LAYING OUT TODAY’S PRIORITIES:

Grayson Byrd, one of the nation’s hottest hitters as the Tigers closed out the regular season, also addressed the media after going hitless yesterday. Byrd, an All-ACC selection, had homered in 10 of his last 13 games before going 0 for 6 against Boston College.
