Really tough loss but i really liked the fight in the team all the way to the end just wish one of our shots there would have gone in.

Tigers desperately need just one player who can hit three-pointers in his sleep.

If brown L could recruit, they would have that shooter***

ZERO contributions from Skara and Simms

No excuse for Simms not being a scoring option for the Tigers. He has way too much versatility to be an inside/outside threat, but tends to look to jack up 3's as his first option. Just another lack of coaching from Brownell to not utilize what skills his players have. I don't even see Skara being the "great" defensive shut down guy the media often refers to. The bench options are non-existent and if Brownell can't win with 4 and 5 year guys this year, the Tigers are looking at a loooooong '19-'20 season.


though disappointed

I’m very proud of this team. UL is a very good basketball team with way superior talent and we had a 3 ft shot to win at the end. Everyone wants to ##### and complain but these players fight and battle and never say die. How many thought down by 7 with just a few seconds to go we would have TWO shots inside the paint to win? I sure didn’t.

Unfortunately, this team can’t seem to get a break but yet, there is no quit in them. No one hates losing more than me but this is a good, not great, Clemson team that deserves some praise and support.

The problem is not the players' lack of effort, the problem is that we don't have a coach that knows how to win close games. This is loss #3 that could have, probably should have, been a win. It is way past time that Clemson got serious about fielding a basketball team and let Brownell go. I've been saying that for years. Last year was a his one good year among years of mediocrity. This year is just more of the same ole stuff. And as someone said, next year will be the pits. BTW, I guess we all know who is now leading Tennessee to be the #1 team in the nation.

It's time... players play and coaches recruit and should put his players in a chance to win... even the close ones. It's time.

1 - Incessant blame of coach BB for all our losses and lack of respect for him as a coach
2 - TNET’s virtually nonexistent coverage of MBB compared to football

I love watching this team and I love their fight every game. I believe coach BB has done a respectable job recruiting older players to try to build a team that can compete. He runs a program of integrity and coaches well with what he has to work with. If BB had 1 - 2 more three point shooters in the rotation that he could count on, our team would have won at least 4 - 5 more games already this season (Louisville, Miami, NC State, Nebraska and maybe Creighton). Brad can coach all day long, but he can’t make the shots drop for his kids. Example - Last year we had a legit three point shooter and look at the difference one guy made. If we had him (or someone similar) this year, we’d have won all the games mentioned above.

Keep fighting MBB - Go Tigers!!

"IF we had 3 point shooters..." If brown L could recruit, we'd have those shooters. That's the answer to your first bullet point.

The answer to the second bullet point is encapsulated in your profile icon.


Brownell is a good coach. Some people who post

Do I think BB is a good ?? coach. Yes .. I think he is. I believe the players play for him as there is NO QUIT in this team. However, where I feel we need to get better is discipline! I believe when we really need to make a play we look like a deer in headlights! There needs to be some more creativity in the offense as well. And we do need a consistent shooter from beyond the arc. Until we fix the above its gonna be a frustrating year!


brown L can't recruit at a level high enough***

Reed got away with pulling his guy down to make the steal.

the Lvl player, Nwora i think, made a great play on Reed's shot to get his hand on the ball just enough

wish Newman had taken more time. he had enough time to come down and go back up with a better shot

so close to an incredible comeback... almost scored 8 points in 9 seconds...


Brownell is 28-47 at Clemson in...

...games decided by 4 points or less and/or in OT. That is coaching folks. Not bad luck.
