Purnell Postgame Press Conference

CLEMSON - Listen to head coach Oliver Purnell after Tuesday's win over N.C. State.


OPENING COMMENTS: I thought that the game went really well, we did a good job being patient and putting the pressure on them. The interior defense was great. They paid attention to the post really well, which was a big part of our game plan. Offensively we shared the ball, and that made scoring much easier.

NEXT GAME AT DUKE: We have been playing well in the league and I hope that carries over to this weekend. A lot of our players are going to need to be on their game because Duke is a very deep team and is always tough.

ON N.C. STATE: It is tough to lose your point guard, and they are trying to find an answer, but it is never easy to not have direction at the point.

ON SHOOTING THREE-POINTERS: They really opened things up. I think that we have a good balance with our inside and outside shooting too.

ON TREVOR BOOKER: I can't say that I am surprised at the way he is performing. I expect him to get better and better each year.
