you should know that we beat a really good Colgate team today. They are considered by some to be the best mid-major team in the country this year. They returned 4 of 5 starters off of last year's team, which won the Patriot League and gave #2 seed Tennessee all they could handle in the NCAA Tournament. They also have the returning conference player of the year (Rapolas Ivanauskas) as well as freshman of the year (Justin Richardson).

We didn't play perfectly, but a few things stand out:

1. We forced 18 turnovers.
2. We converted those 18 turnovers into 30 points.
3. Our bench outscored theirs 17-2.
4. We shot over 50% from the field.
5. We shot over 70% from the line.
6. We scored 46 points in the paint.

What is probably most encouraging, as nctigs mentioned earlier today, our starting backcourt of true freshmen Dawes and Hunter combined for 26 points (on 10-18 shooting), 5 assists, 4 rebounds, and only 2 turnovers.

We obviously have some things to improve upon, but today's win was a very good one against a very solid Colgate team.

They held together when Colgate started raining 3's and we weren't shooting them well. We used our quickness off the bounce to get in the lane and really disrupt them on defense.

Thought Mack and Simms, even Scott, led in effort and it was contagious. Really solid win.

Now, two games to hopefully iron out some kinks before a tourney we may have a shot to win in Vegas

Good points. But you should stop why you are ahead. Many fans will not give credit to the team until they win 8 or 9 straight games to make up for the Virginia Tech loss. The frustrating thing is if they had played as well as they did in that game as they did today they would have beat VT hands down. Got to win these games they are favored in because it's going to get tougher soon. My hope is that the Colgate win gives them a lot of confidence. If they were a little rusty after winning WGs over the summer, this win should hopefully bring the good vibes back. If we can win all our non conference games except for one maybe two at the most and get Bahre and Trapp back and contributing before the ACC season starts fully we might be in position to have a good season.

Wonderful to hear, JK! I had missed it.

Just goes to show (imo) that Coach Boeheim was right. Sure, everyone has the same disadvantage, but playing a conference game to open the season is a silly and unnecessary concession to the marketing dept.

Of course, the opposite could also be true: by playing a better level of competition first, the young players were forced to mature.

This team has loads of potential. One aspect of last year's team that was so discouraging was that they seemed to have maxed out their potential.


Defense looked better than I've seen in a while. Missed

It’s amazing how many people were here whining and complaining about our basketball team after the Virginia Tech game. Some of those people were still here after we beat Presbyterian, saying that we learned nothing from that game.

Well, we just beat a very good Colgate team, and none of those people are showing up to congratulate our team and discuss the win. It really shows their true colors.

and we completely took over to win by double digits. Nice to see that kind of effort in crunch time, with a good result to show for it.

The downside to pulling away as much as we did late is that it won’t show up as a “close win” that some here like to focus on. I prefer today’s result!

You’re just lying at this point though. Colgate is not a vaunted mid-major program. It is a complete fallacy. The Patriot conference, once a non-scholarship conference and bastion of amateurism, is now simply one of the 5 worst conferences in D1 basketball. Restricted by admission criteria and unable to compete with the economic need packages of the Ivy League they have been crippled. You don’t know and/or care about this because are simply a Brownell shill. But your OP is a fallacy designed solely to deflect from yet another disappointing start to another inevitably disappointing season.

will also tell you that Colgate is a good team and that today’s win was a good one. They will also tell you that Colgate is likely better than Virginia Tech this year. It’s not just me making this stuff up.

In addition, their results from last year, and the fact that they return 4 of 5 starters (including last year’s conference player of the year as well as their conference’s freshman of the year) are also true statements. You are welcome to look up that info since you don’t believe me.

It’s sad that you are so determined to undermine and criticize our basketball program, to the point that you can’t simply acknowledge a nice win today. There was a lot in today’s game to be pleased with, yet it seems that you can’t even enjoy it.

Colgate is probably not at good as VT talent wise but they are certainly a top notch mid major and proved last year that they can play with the big boys. Have about 3 games that were 10 points or less against some major programs. It was a good win and great to see our starters play so well. TCU will most likely be a tougher matchup but this was not a team anywhere near the level of PC. They are a solid team and we played great in the last 3 minutes which is awesome to see!!

Even the link within the article is garbage. There are 32 D1 conferences. The term mid-major, while having no strict definition, has nearly always been used colloquially to mean the best conferences in D1 “middle” conferences below the Power 5 conferences. The poll you have found turns that notion on it’s head and leaves out the American Athletic, Mountain West, Atlantic 10, and Conference USA. If you had argued that Colgate was in the top 25 teams amongst the 23 worst conferences in basketball I might not have been so quick to disagree. It’s just pathetic to argue that there are any takeaways for an ACC program playing Colgate. This poll you conveniently found ranks “mid-major” teams while excluding the 4 best mid-major conferences. Your assertions continue to be disingenuous at best.

There are at least 4 mid-majors in the actual AP Top 25 (and I’m not counting the Big East). There are many more also receiving votes. Colgate has 0 votes. Not 1 voter thinks they are even the 25th best team in the country. If many voters think many mid major teams belong in the top 25 and zero voters think Colgate are ones of those teams, then it is a fallacy that Colgate is regarded as a top mid-major program this year.

to discount Colgate.

Even if you don't think they are a good mid-major, these facts are still true:

1. Colgate returns 4 starters from a team that won their conference last year and gave #2 seed Tennessee all they could handle in the NCAA Tournament.
2. Their roster includes last year's conference player of the year and conference freshman of the year.
3. We outplayed them in crunch time.
4. We shot over 50% from the field.
5. We shot over 70% from the line.
6. We got a lot of points in the paint.
7. Our bench outscored theirs.
8. We created a lot of turnovers.

These truths are still real, whether you think Colgate is a good win or not. I haven't seen any of your posts pointing out these positives or agreeing that there are some good takeaways from the game.

Have you been able to enjoy our win, or are you too concerned with negatives?

None of those truths make them a “top mid-major” which is your repeated, ridiculous assertion. If your OP said, “Colgate isn’t bad for a team from one of the five worst conferences in D1. At least we avoided disaster out there tonight. Looking forward to seeing if this team can continue to improve” then you wouldn’t have been so demonstrably wrong and called out for it. But you post with an agenda. And that is the promotion of Brad Brownell at all costs regardless of recent or historical success. You are willing to distort and misrepresent in furtherance of the goal. It deserves to be called out.

The point of my post was to point out many positives from our game against a team that is a very good mid-major. Obviously we are only two games into the season, so it remains to be seen how good anyone is (including us). The "fans" who showed up in droves after we lost to Virginia Tech were nowhere to be seen yesterday afternoon and evening, so I wanted to summarize our nice win for them whenever they felt it was safe to come back.

And I haven't been "called out" for anything. Two links in this thread illustrate that Colgate is well thought of (one was a mid-major top 25, and the other was a mid-major top 10). Those are obviously just two opinions. You clearly disagree with those assessments, which is fine. But it isn't wrong for me (and others) to consider Colgate a good team, and to view our double digit win over them as a good one.

Nothing in my post was a misrepresentation whatsoever. You're just trying to portray it as such because you will do anything to discredit our program, coaches, and players.

You’re digressing completely. “ we beat a really good Colgate team today. They are considered by some to be the best mid-major team in the country this year.” This is your opening salvo and you have still failed to admit it is untrue. None of the links provide really argue this and I’ve provide tangible evidence that they are in fact not considered to be the best mid major team. No ones thinks they are on par with Gonzaga, Butler, VCU, Utah State, or St. Mary’s. Yet you claimed “they are considered by some” to be better than these teams. You were letting all of us who take basketball so much less seriously than you know that Colgate was really for real. Because it Would be the only reason the stats you proceed repeatedly to brag would have any meaning. But they don’t, because Colgate really isn’t that good. And the fact the you feel any satisfaction in bragging about the inner workings of a win by a 10th year ACC head coach over a Patriot League team at home says more than I can continue to stomach about the state of our basketball program.

You criticized a fan for doing nothing but supporting Clemson basketball.
You then doubled down by criticizing the quality of our opponent.
Then you criticized the credibility of sources.
Then you belabored the correct terminology to use when describing the disparate levels comprising the 360+ D1 basketball programs.
Then you went back to criticizing ALL of the fans supporting Clemson basketball.

Maybe I got bored, but i never read your support of Clemson basketball in the entire thread.

The fact that this thread pulled you out of your ivory tower to comment made JK's entire argument: even when we win, you're more interested in criticism; therefore, we are free to disregard your criticism even when we lose, because she has just proven it to be a constant, invariable factor.

“ You then doubled down by criticizing the quality of our opponent.

All of this is fairly redundant but all of it goes to the heart of the OPs efforts to mislead.
“ Then you went back to criticizing ALL of the fans supporting Clemson basketball.”
Not aware of any statement I made that would make this remotely true.

As for the rest - I challenge you to find a single post in my entire history on Tigernet critical of a coach or player. You will find replies when I find other’s statements to be objectionable - usually based on outright fallacies.

Seems to me you simply share the OPs enthusiasm for the current state of basketball and won’t be swayed by, you know, facts or the meaning of words otherwise. You’re entitled.

The equivalent to the whining and negativity I see posted here about Clemson basketball (which includes complaining about virtually all aspects of the program, including coaches, players, and opponents, ad nauseum) would be if I complained about every Clemson tradition with zero positivity.

If I had been posting that I disliked running down the hill, the paw, the singing of the alma mater, Tiger Walk, etc., and I did it over and over, and my dislike of those things kept me from finding any positives about our traditions whatsoever, THAT would be equivalent to how many of you view our basketball program.

Surely you can see the difference.

finished better than .500. I guess someone, somewhere, can say they are good now but...

They have won their conference tournament 3 times, in their entire history.
They have won their regular season conference title 4 times, in their entire history.
They are 0-3 in the NCAA Tournament, all time.
They are 0-1 in the CBI, all time.

I'm not a CBB naysayer, but your claims are suspect.

I never claimed that Colgate is a powerhouse major program, but they are a good team and it was a good win for our program, especially after our disappointing loss to Virginia Tech.

I was highlighting our win (which was a good win over a very good mid-major team) for those "fans" who failed to show up on TigerNet. These are the same fans who posted a LOT after the loss to Virginia Tech talking about how awful we are. Some of these fans showed up after the PC win to say that we couldn't take anything away from that win. After the Colgate win, literally none of them were here.

My "argument" is that we had a nice win with a lot of positives. Are you able to focus on those positives yourself?

People didn’t “show up” here to complain about the VT loss. Most were here because of the CFP show. Just so happened the disappointing loss, in which we barely shot over 20 pct overall and 1 for 14 from the 3 in the second half, happened at the same time. Glad to see the team bouncing back, but I think most are waiting until we do something in the conference before getting too excited. We’ve just seen this movie too many times. Hopefully this year is different.

Good grief. This is just sad on so many levels. Continuing this line of thinking/logic simply negates everything that I stand for, and condones the annual failures that we have witnessed. I'm not sure how much pain the CLEMSON fan base must endure prior to action on the part of our administration (AD). These people are paid lots of money and not providing a good ROI. I think the judge is a good person and a great fan for his continued support, but maybe fails to simply see how business works in the real world. I wish the best for all, but have my doubts as the nonsense seems to have no end.

This has the potential to be a very good resume win in March. Colgate is far and away the favorite for the Patriot League, and wins over teams in the field are key for at-large purposes.

Solid win...hopefully we can string a few together.
