Brownell recaps win over Wolfpack

CLEMSON - Head coach Brad Brownell talks about Saturday afternoon's 72-69 overtime win against N.C. State.


Overall thoughts:
"This was certainly a great win for our players and I couldn't be happier for Andre (Young) and Tanner (Smith). For those guys to make those plays - Tanner in regulation to draw those fouls and make the free throws and Andre to get that big three - those guys deserve that; they've given a lot to our team. This was a good confidence building win against a good team. NC State is hard to stop and hard to guard. Our guys had to play exceptionally well to win."

On Andre Young's last 3-point shot:
"That last shot, there was no thought to it. Sometimes in that situation you can be your own worst enemy especially if you're a good kid with a conscience like Andre is and there's only six seconds left on the shot clock you just have to shoot it and there's really no thought to it. He nailed it."

On team's karma:
"You hope the basketball gods are smiling on us all the time. Certainly, you hope that things even out a little bit. This is one win that Andre and Tanner deserve because of how hard they have worked and the kind of kids that they are. It was a great day for karma to go their way with a great crowd including former players."

On this Alumni weekend:
"This weekend was awesome. We had a great event last night with the alumni basketball game with a lot of players that came back. We had a terrific turnout with the crowd and we appreciate all those people that came out. I know the players had a great time watching those guys shoot the ball in Littlejohn. We had a really nice luncheon today to honor the top 25 players in Clemson history. To have them in the stands today to watch our guys compete and win in this environment was awesome. It was really just a great weekend for Clemson basketball." Top Stories
