Maryland 64 Clemson 62 Quoteboard

CLEMSON - The result of Tuesday night's 64-62 loss to Maryland has become an all too familiar feeling for Brad Brownell.

In five of their six ACC losses this season, the Tigers have lost by a combined total of 13 points. Tuesday night's game was the third time this season Clemson has lost to a conference opponent by two points.

"I guess déjà vu is about what comes to mind," Brownell said. "Certainly a very disheartening loss. This one probably hurts a little more, because it was at home."

After facing a 48-34 deficit with 11:48 left to play, the Tigers managed to claw their way back and get up a potential game-winner before the buzzer by Andre Young.

"Once I put it up there, I saw it kind of had a chance, like it was going to hit the rim," he said.

Young's free-throws with 10.7 seconds left…
"I felt comfortable. I thought I was going to make all three. The first one went in and out. The second one hit the front part of the rim. It felt good. Just didn't go down." - Young

"It hurts because you know how much he's put into it and how much he really wants to win. He wants to be in those situations. He's not going to be good tomorrow. He's not going to be good. You want guys like that, because that means he cares." - Brownell

35 percent from the field, 58 percent from the line…
"We just didn't make shots. At the end of the day, you've got to be able to score the basketball." - Brownell

"In the first half, we took a lot of bad shots. In the second half, I don't think we took as many bad shots. We just didn't finish some shots we didn't finish." - Brownell

Milton Jennings' return…
"Milt brought a lot of energy to the game, especially with some big, key shots at the end of the game. We still had a chance, but just couldn't pull it out." - Devin Booker

"He was OK in the first half. Obviously, he made some big shots late. I thought his energy level was really good. He played really well in the second half." - Brownell

Terrell Stoglin with 27 points…
"The kid had a great night. He gets 27 a lot, but he can't do it on 11 shots. It's got to be 18 to 20 shots. We didn't do a couple of things very well, in terms of trapping him out of some ball screens situations that I would have liked to have seen better." - Brownell Top Stories
