Purnell Comments on Prosser

Clemson coach Oliver Purnell released a statement Thursday on the death of Wake Forest head coach Skip Prosser.

"Skip Prosser was one of the best and brightest basketball coaches in the country. He was successful because of his work ethic, great personality and his personal integrity in every aspect of his life. He was a genuine person.

"We were fierce competitors for many years during my career at Clemson and Dayton (when Prosser coached at Xavier). But when that game or season ended he was my friend.

"This is a sad and tragic day for everyone associated with college basketball."
