Tony Stockman, Clemson's leading returning scorer from last season will likely see limited action due to a bruised knee suffered in last night's 81-69 win over the LaSalle Explorers. Chey Christie will probably get significant minutes in place of Stockman.
The Hurricanes have an outstanding power forward in Darius Rice (a McDonald's All-American in high school). Rice is averaging 21 points a game and is a monster on the boards and figures to be defended by Chris Hobbs.
Miami defeated Eastern Michigan by 37 points in the opening round, and then defeated UAB by 2 last night. The Tigers advanced by taking care of business against Morris Brown and LaSalle.
The Hurricanes, led by former Tulane coach Perry Clark finished the 2000-01 campaign at 16-13.
6'0 Ed Scott..........6'2 Marcus Barnes
6'1 Chey Christie.....6'7 John Salmons
6'8 Ray Henderson.....6'9 Elton Tyler
6'5 Jamar McKnight....6'8 James Jones
6'7 Chris Hobbs.......6'10 Darius Rice
*The 'Canes will have a height advantage at almost every position.
*Tip off is set for 7:45 PM.
*Clemson owns a 5-0 lifetime mark against the Hurricanes on the basketball court.
