Thoughts on the game:
"Pleased with the way we played tonight. The guys got better as the game
went on, which was a good thing to see. They did a good job finding their
rhythm offensively and they were able to force a lot of turnovers. Then
we came out in the second half with a tough mindset and were able to carry
it the rest of the game."
On concerns about playing Wofford:
"I was concerned about Wofford's unorthodox style of play, they make you
take the jump shots and if you are having trouble shooting then it can be
a close game."
On the confidence of Clemson's freshmen:
"Tanner and Andre did not play like freshmen at all during the tournament,
and Narcisse did a great job tonight when he got in. I am very pleased
with the poise and maturity these guys are showing."
On Clemson's fast-paced style:
"I think it sends a message, and it gets people excited because the fans,
players, and coaches all enjoy it."
On Andre Young's performance:
"Things started to open up for him towards the end of the game, and he is
a good shooter and was able to take advantage of those opportunities."
On Booker's ankle:
"It is good. He was doing well on it and it should be 100% by Saturday."
On the crowd:
"We want our fans to rock Littlejohn. It was a good crowd tonight and
that gives the team energy."
On the team's free throw shooting:
"They definitely help us win games because they can expand the lead. We
won two or three tournament games with the help of our free throws."
