Clemson Head Coach Brad Brownell Quotes

Overall Thoughts:

“Overall, I was pleased with our guys’ effort tonight. We got off to a
great start. I thought our starters played well. We would have liked to
see Demontez (Stitt) get a few more minutes but we were ready to play and
I thought Western Carolina was ready to play. They have kids that were in
this building before and were excited to be here and our guys did a good
job of keeping them from getting into their sets offensively. We did a
good job of finding a way to get the ball inside to take advantage of our
side.”



On handling Western Carolina’s ability:

“There are ebbs and flows of basketball. I thought us getting off to a
good start really helped. There was a little spot in the middle where they
made a run but I was pleased with our guys’ ability to get stops.”



On being ready to play:

“I think the biggest thing that I was impressed with was that we were
ready to play. Our guys came in energized and excited and really got after
it.”



On offensive production:

“It was okay. We struggled getting into the flow but we scored a lot of
points and didn’t turn the ball over much.”



Western Carolina Head Coach Larry Hunter



Overall thoughts on the game:

“I was impressed with the energy level of Clemson, especially in the first
half. They played very well together. I thought they worked well
inside-out and you could tell they really worked on reversing the
basketball. They really hurt us and got the early lead with some offensive
rebounding. They’re just a very fundamentally sound basketball team. They
played well that first half with a lot of energy and it was very
impressive. They shot very well. When you get good shots, you shoot a good
percentage and they got good shots.”



On Clemson forward Devin Booker:

“I liked him last year as a player. I watched him on TV a couple of times
and watched him develop as a player. He’s a little different than his
brother, but he’s talented. He’s very good offensively and just a very
good player.”



On what can be taken from this game:

“We’re just a very young team. We’re evolving and getting better. This was
a tall order for us to start with. We graduated five seniors and we’re
just re-tooling.. I’m not really pleased, but I’m not too discouraged.”
