Oglesby done at Clemson

CLEMSON - Sources have confirmed Terrence Oglesby is done playing basketball at Clemson.

It appears as though sophomore guard Terrence Oglesby is done playing basketball at Clemson University.

According to sources close to his situation, Oglesby is signjng with an agent and will play professional basketball overseas within the coming months.

Oglesby was the third leading scorer on for Clemson last season, averaging 13.2 points per game, however he was also a source of tremendous controversy.

He was ejected in Clemson's NCAA Tournament game against Michigan after sending a forearm to opposing player.

"I did elbow him," Oglesby admitted afterwards. "I just blanked out and did it. I didn't really think that I was going to get him or anything, it was just selfish of me to loss my cool. I left the guys out to dry."

The play was symbolic of a career that started with so much promise but ended suddenly.

Oglesby burst on the scene as a freshman averaging 10.5 points per game, demonstrating unlimited range coming off the bench for a Clemson basketball team that earned its first NCAA Tournament berth in 10 years.

He moved into the starting lineup as a sophomore and was one of the most dominating players on the court, at times.

However it was that range that came into question throughout his tenure with the Tigers. Too many times Oglesby appeared to take shots out of the flow of Clemson's offense, even when he was on target.

Oglesby struggled down the stretch tas the Tigers were upset in the first-round of the ACC Tournament and in the NCAA Tournament.

The highlight of his Clemson career came in 2008 in College Park, Md. when Oglesby buried a 27-footer from the right wing to cap a 20-point comeback against Maryland.

The win helped carry the Tigers to their first NCAA Tournament berth since the Rick Barnes era in the late-1990's.

Now Oglesby will take his game to Europe where he will pursue a professional career.
