SG Gabe DeVoe Profile
What he saw wasn't very pretty.
"That game, they couldn't find a rhythm and couldn't get anything going. They had a lot of turnovers. Today, they came out and protected the ball a lot better, didn't turn the ball over a bunch," DeVoe told CUTigers during an interview on Saturday night.
Two days after that loss to the Seminoles, DeVoe returned to Littlejohn Coliseum for the Duke game.
"It was fun," he said. "There was a lot of energy in the crowd. The student section really made a difference in the game, the environment, got the players going."
So far this season, DeVoe has been impressed by his future teammates.
"I've been keeping up with them a lot, watching a lot of games," he said. "Defensively, they're playing great, holding teams down to not a lot of points. Offensively, I've seen some games where they've struggled to shoot the ball.
"Overall, I think they're having a good season so far."
DeVoe isn't doing too badly either. The 52-point outburst is just one of many big nights he's had during his senior season at Shelby High School [N.C.].
"At the time, I knew I had made a lot, but I didn't realize how many I had until the student section was telling me I had 49," DeVoe said. "I hit that last 3. I just felt like the basket was really big and I couldn't miss."
By this time next year, he'll be one of two freshmen on the Clemson basketball team. Brad Bronwell and his staff looks forward to welcoming him to town with Donte Grantham.
"In terms of basketball, they're just looking forward to me being able to play. They're also telling me to enjoy my senior year, and we'll worry about everything else in the spring," DeVoe said.
