Tigers discuss Michigan

KANSAS CITY - Terrence Oglesby, K.C. Rivers and Trevor Booker discuss Clemson's first-round matchup.


TERRENCE OGLESBY: "It's exciting just to be able to get back on the horse and give this another shot. Last year was disappointing as far as losing the first game. Hopefully we can rebound and do a good job of playing together and advancing. ... We've had an abundance of team meetings and I think we've really come together a lot more as a team and we've been more focused on our goal- which is advanced. We feel like one way we can rebound is to focus more."

K.C. RIVERS: "They play a lot of guards and they make you play at least 30 seconds of the shot clock. So we have to be sound defensively. Defense is going to be our main purpose in this game. That's what we have to do and we have to have a conscious effort on the defensive end of the court if we are going to win."

TREVOR BOOKER: "I think we were a little down on ourselves after the Georgia Tech loss but we've had a lot of meetings and had a lot of fun in practice the last couple of days. We're going to rebound well. We lost four out of five games so we were limping into the ACC Tournament but we can't let that get in our minds again. We have to play Clemson basketball. We are looking forward to tomorrow."
