5 Questions with Terrence Oglesby

CLEMSON - CUTigers catches up with Clemson's ace shooter after Sunday's win over Liberty.


What was the key there in the last stretch to kind of wear them down and pick up the win?
Oglesby: I think it was our energy because we came out just as lethargic as they did, and they played last night, so we had no right to do that. Coach was good to us yesterday, as far as going easy because he knew we would have an advantage as far as them being fatigued from the night before. But we finally picked up the energy towards the end.

They threw the five guards at you, what was that like to play against?
Oglesby: Yeah, they had some good players. You know, you can't take anything away from them. They had five guys who could put it in the hole and they had a solid point guard, No. 25, and he did a good job as far as initiating and getting everyone involved in their offense and stuff like that. They had a good team and they're going to surprise lot of people this year.

What did you think of Liberty's guard, Seth Curry [younger brother of Stephon]?
Oglesby: He's a good player. I think he's better off the dribble than his brother is, but his brother is a little better at reading screens. They both have their pros and cons. I give the kid credit for how he played tonight. He's a good player and anybody in that Curry family can shoot. He's a good player and he's going to be just as good if not better than his brother.

You had a couple of big three-pointers right there when it was a six- or seven-point game, how did it feel to bring the score closer to even?
Oglesby: That just came with the energy that we all started to show. It was contagious; once one of us got going, all of us got going. Then the crowd got into it. We were happy just to pick it back up.

What was your dialog with K.C. Rivers, there in the second half?
Oglesby: Well that was just one thing leading to another. He said something, I said something back—it's going to happen with teammates and to be honest with you I'm glad it happened because it picked our energy up. You know, substantially, that's his responsibility as a captain and that brought some fight into the whole team after it happened. If that's what we have to do to pick up the energy, I think that's fine with me. I have no hard feelings and he has none towards me, that's just part of the game. We both love each other.
