Will Clemson find the magic next year?

The Clemson basketball team finished the 2014-2015 season with a 16-15 record (8-10 ACC) but to the dismay of fans and the team, outside of any postseason play.

The Tigers' defense was still stingy as they finished the regular season third in the ACC in overall scoring defense (61.7), fourth in blocks per game (4.8) and fifth in field goal percentage defense (.398).

However, a lack of consistent outside shooting without a go-to scorer hurt the Tigers as the team would go scoreless for several minutes during critical stretches during the season.

The defensive-minded team showed potential as they did have big wins against Arkansas, N.C. State, LSU, Syracuse and Pittsburgh.

A new season awaits the Tigers as PG Rod Hall, SG DeMarcus Harrison, SG Patrick Rooks move on but new point guard Avry Holmes takes a leadership role at the point guard position. He transferred to Clemson after two seasons at San Francisco where he averaged 12.5 per game last season.

Front-court players Blossomgame (leading scorer and rebounder for Tigers), Grantham and Nnoko are back and could possibly progress to become arguably one of the better front-courts in the ACC. Grantham was Clemson's first freshman to have at least 40 three's, 40 assists, 20 blocks and 20 steals.

The Bovada betting service is giving the Clemson basketball team a 500/1 odds to win the 2015-2016 national championship. Seventy-four teams have a better chance to win the title than the Tigers.

Clemson is tied with 17 teams with a 500/1 chance to win it all including Boston College, Virginia Tech and Wake Forest.
