Position: Head Coach

Tyus Battle 's 3-pointer from the corner as time expired handed the Tigers a heartbreaking 82-81 loss to Syracuse on Tuesday night in Littlejohn Coliseum. Clemson head coach Brad Brownell said a mixup caused Battle to get such a wide open look for the game winner.

"We had a mix up on the last play. I don't know if it was the scorer's table or my staff made a mistake but obviously, it is my responsibility but we thought (Tyler) Roberson was still in the game for them," Brownell said. "He is their best offensive rebounder so we had Sidy (Djitte) in there to make sure he didn't tip one in. Then you look out and he is not in the game and we are in trouble because he isn't used to guarding perimeter players that often. He leaves a shooter and we lose on a last second shot. Unfortunate. I feel awful for my players."
