, a freshman.

- Devin Booker has worked on a lot of things like playing with his back to the basket and also facing up and driving to the basket. Booker is a good free throw shooter and the coaches want him to get to the line more.

- Tigers have 6 returning players and 6 new players so everyone has taken someone under their wing. The Tigers signed 5 players and also added Carson Fields, a preferred walk-on who was added to the roster in the fall.

is a great athlete and has a lot of potential. Bernard [Sullivan] can step out and do some inside and outside things.”



Narcisse said he expects big things from K.J. McDaniels this year and also tipped us off to a dunk contest between himself and McDaniels at Rock the ‘John. He said McDaniels is really making him step up his game for the dunk contest.








Clemson head basketball coach Brad Brownell will be holding his annual media golf tournament on Wednesday. We will have comments from Brownell on the upcoming season on Wednesday afternoon.
