Clemson Head Coach Brad Brownell statement on Sunday's news that the
Atlantic Coast Conference extended formal invitations for membership to
Pittsburgh and Syracuse:


“This certainly strengthens our league, and reaffirms the ACC as the best
basketball league in the country. We’ve added two of the better programs
in the Big East and brought a great deal of attention to our league right
now.

“Jim Boeheim is a Hall of Fame coach and has won a national championship.
Jamie Dixon has done an unbelievable job at Pittsburgh; they’ve been one
of the top programs in the Big East ever since he took over.

“The move certainly gives our conference more of a presence in the
Northeast. That should help everyone in terms of recruiting in that area.
At the same time, our league will be exposed to television markets it has
not been in the past.”
