Clemson Tigers Tickets for Sale
The Clemson frontcourt seems to be set with a good amount of depth. Because of his size and ability to shoot, 6-6 Noel Johnson can play either spot on the wing for the Tigers. While Donte Hill does not have quite the size of Johnson, he does possess the toughness and rebounding ability to play small forward. Devin Booker is a talented power forward, but it is Milton Jennings, a McDonald's All-American, who is most likely to replace Sykes in the starting lineup.
Rivers and Oglesby were the only two players to connect on at least one three-pointer a game last season, so the question is who is going to fill in and shoot efficiently enough for Clemson's offense to continue to be dynamic? The answer could be outside shooter Tanner Smith, who is a good all-around player that could be starting if he can build upon his solid freshman performance. Until then, it might be up to Johnson to step up early and hit the three-pointer.
This team has enough talent and depth to be very good. With Stitt and Young handling the point, Booker becoming a household name by the end of the season, and all of options available to fill the gaps, CU should be headed to their third straight NCAA Tournament. With a fan base amongst the most loyal of any school across the nation, Littlejohn Coliseum in Clemson, South Carolina, will undoubtedly be orange from the floor to the rafters, so get your Clemson Tigers tickets now and be a part of the madness.
Coach Oliver Purnell and his Clemson Tigers have done great job over the years, but especially during the past two seasons. Despite the loss of three starters, Terrence Oglesby, K.C. Rivers, and Raymond Sykes, this is still a team which will compete with anybody in the Atlantic Coast Conference. Clemson's up-tempo style of play means Purnell would prefer to have at least a ten-man rotation, so with six players back who averaged at least 13 minutes per game and a very talented group of four newcomers, the Tigers will have the ten he is looking for.
Demontez Stitt spent much of his sophomore season dishing the ball to sharpshooters K.C. Rivers and Terrence Oglesby. However, Stitt still managed to score almost 9 points per game himself, and has the potential to score even more if needed. Unfortunately, Stitt is not much of a natural shooter, and also had some turnover problems late in the year, which opened the door for Andre Young to play a bigger role. Young may not be a dynamic playmaker like Stitt, but he did protect the ball much better and is a better outside shooter.
There is little debate over who the star of this Clemson team is – Trevor Booker racked up an impressive 15 points, 10 rebounds, 2 blocks and almost 2 steals per game. At 6-7, Booker may not be a typical big man, but he is a very tough rebounder who can even step out and hit an occasional three-pointer. David Potter is a quality option off the Tiger bench, as he can play either forward position and stretch out the defense with his outside shooting. However, it may be Jerai Grant who is ready to have a breakout year. Grant is a good athlete who fits perfectly into Purnell's scheme on both offense and defense; he will use his length to block shots and get the occasional steal, while at the other end of the court he is very good on the offensive boards with the added potential to emerge as a decent scorer.
