The senior point guard from Albany, Ga., Clemson's only player to reach
double-figures during the 64-62 January win at Littlejohn Coliseum,
knocked down 9 of 12 shots from the field and went 7 of 9 from behind the
On Tuesday night, Georgia Tech will host Clemson at Phillips Arena.
"The last two days, I'm sure they've watched clips of Andre Young making
3's," said head coach Brad Brownell, who has the Tigers at 13-13
"Georgia Tech is a good team, really talented, just like every other team
in the ACC," Young said. "They play with a lot of energy, so it's
important that we come in with a defensive mindset and try to take care of
business at their place. It's not going to be easy."
With leading scorer Glen Rice, Jr. suspended indefinitely, it could be a
little easier for Clemson. But that isn't necessarily a given.
"I thought they moved the ball well [without Rice against Virginia Tech],"
Brownell said. "I thought they got the ball inside a little bit more,
maybe. Guys seemed very confident. They played with good poise.
"I just think that he's certainly a guy who can step up and make big
shots, like he did in our game here. That probably means guys are going to
get more opportunities."
In two weeks, Clemson will be back at Phillips Arena for the ACC
"It's like most places, you go somewhere and have a good experience, and
you don't feel as bad
as if it doesn't work out. You're probably a little more cautious,"
Brownell said. "Hopefully, we play well and guys make shots, and feel good
Clemson is seeking its second straight regular season sweep of Georgia Tech. The Tigers have not accomplished the feat versus the Yellow Jackets since the 1979-82 era when Clemson won six straight over Georgia Tech when they first entered the ACC.
