The Clemson men’s basketball team righted the ship a bit on Saturday, snapping a three-game losing streak with a 75-48 blowout of Pittsburgh at Littlejohn Coliseum. The Tigers knocked down twelve three pointers against the Panthers, while dishing out nineteen assists in the win.
On Monday, Brad Brownell jumped on the ACC Media Zoom call to recap the victory and to look ahead to Clemson’s road game at Duke on Tuesday night. Brownell said he was pleased with his team’s ball movement against Pittsburgh’s zone, while also noting his concerns regarding Duke’s physicality and inside presence. The head boss of the Tigers also took a moment to reflect on the career of Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski. This will be Brownell’s last opportunity to face “Coach K” at Cameron Indoor Stadium before Krzyzewski retires at the end of the season. Tipoff is set for 7pm on ESPN2. The two teams will make up their postponed game from December on Thursday, February 10th at Clemson.
