CLEMSON - Head coach Oliver Purnell discusses the debut of Catalin Baciu and previews Tuesday's game against Savannah State.
: We are still kind of looking back at the Charlotte game and try to learn some lessons from that game. We were really pleased to get out of there with a win. As loud as an environment as I've been in in a long time. Charlotte played hard and played well and gave us everything they had but at the same time we had some semblance of control of the game the whole night. When Charlotte made its biggest push all night we came up with huge defensive stops and K.C. [Rivers] made some offensive plays.
ON SAVANNAH STATE
: We know they are up-tempo and we know they are athletic. They have a brand new coach and a brand new spirit. And they come in here 4-0 and present a different kind of challenge because they are going to get up and down. There style is reminiscent of our own. That's a different style than we've seen for a while.
ON CATALIN BACIU
: We'll read the game and see where we are. We'll give him a lot of work in practice. We are 5-0 so we certainly aren't going to abandon what we've been doing in order to work somebody in. Hopefully he'll get a chance to work in tomorrow (Tuesday) night.
