PURNELL: Tigers Should Be Ranked

CLEMSON - Listen to head coach Oliver Purnell talk about his team's come-from-behind win over Liberty.

(8:26)

OVERALL THOUGHTS: Well that was a walk in the park. I have a lot of admiration for their team. They played yesterday and still had a lot of heart and energy. It was a struggle for us to win this game. We were not in sync defensively and we didn't wear them down. Their 3's got us on our heels. Give our guys credit, they hung in there. We guarded Liberty well and made plays and got the shot clock down.

ON FIRST THIRD OF THE SEASON: I'm very please with the season so far. I gave our team an 'A' for the first third of the season. We have played some outstanding teams. I think we should be ranked tomorrow, I think we are one of the top 25 teams in the nation.

ON K.C. RIVERS' 32 POINTS: All year long he has been about toughness. He refused to lose today, he kept scoring, rebounding and he was great defensively.

ON SETH CURRY: He scares you to death every time he shoots.
