AUDIO: Clemson 79 Miami 72

CLEMSON - Listen to post-game interviews with head coach Brad Brownell and Andre Young.


"I was really proud of how spirited they were. We played with more confidence, which is certainly not only necessary, but a major positive step for us to feel comfortable. We needed to be able to battle through a lot of adversity at times. I talked to our guys about that before the game because we haven't had a lot of that over the past few games."

ON TOUGHNESS IN THE WIN: "We had to continue to make shots and execute offensively and score. We couldn't get enough stops to get the game put away with our defense. So it put more pressure on us offensively. It was good for our team to have to win a game like that. I prefer to win on defense, but this was good for us to win it a different way."

ON ZAVIER ANDERSON: "He's just a tough kid, and he plays with pretty good poise. He's farther along with poise than Cory (Stanton), and he should be because he's four years older. Even though he hasn't played a lot, he's practiced against these guys and he's sat on the bench and watched these kinds of games. I said early on in the preseason that we would see Zay in ACC games. I thought people would think I was crazy, and that was when we had a full roster of 11, and now we're down to nine (scholarship players) and he's started some and is playing in the second half of an ACC game."

ON FIRST ACC WIN: "I haven't really thought about it. But certainly, I guess it's a significant moment in terms of getting to this level and getting to coach at a school like Clemson. You win this game, and then put it behind you because you realize that if you want to stay around here, you'd better win a lot more."
