CLEMSON -- Clemson's men's basketball team falls to 9-5 after losing at home to the Yale Bulldogs (8-6).


The Tigers had the ball and trailed 67-65 with 13 seconds to go, but Ed Scott turned the ball over on a drive to the basket, and the Bulldogs
went on to defeat the Tigers by a 68-65 score in the teams' second ever meeting. The series now stands at 1-1.


The Tigers were led in scoring by Tony Stockman with 22 points. Point guard Ed Scott had a double-double with 10 boards and 11 assists. The Bulldogs were led by Edwin Draughan and Matt Minoff. Both players had 16 points.


The Tigers will next face ACC foe Georgia Tech in Atlanta on January 5 at 12:00 PM EST.


Yale Head Coach James Jones:


"I told my guys after the game tonight that in a week's time we have gone from being as low as you can go
to being as high as you can go."


"We did not play up to our potential in the last couple of games but I was really proud of how we responded
tonight. We were able to get back to the basics and play like we are capable of playing. We beat a good
team tonight and I amjust happy that we were able to tuna things around."


Clemson Head Coach Larry Shyatt:


"This was a disappointing loss. If we could have won we would have had a good streak heading
into ACC play.


"Give Yale credit, they made shots the last five minutes of the game. They hit timely three-point
goals, especially Vitelli down the stretch.


"Our problems on defense down the stretch were more glaring because we struggled on offense
tonight."


"We rebounded well, we bad 22 offensive rebounds, a sign of hustle, but we have to convert those
second shots. We did not do that tonight and it cost us."


"I thought both teams played hard. It was an ugly game offensively for the first 35 minutes. I am
most disappointed in the final score. We had good hustle stats, but we needed to find a way to win. "


"Sometimes a sign of a young team is they play better on the road. I don't know why we have not
played well at home. We have four wing away from home and five at home."


"We need to come back on Saturday. We will be the underdog in the next 15 games. We have had
underdog teams defeat us at home, now we need to beat favored teams in conference play.
