Clemson Downs Delaware State

I'm not going to sit here and pretend like Delaware State is a juggernaut.  But Clemson did take care of business in impressive fashion.  Clemson built a 21 point halftime lead and never let up on their way to a 76-41 win.  And although Delaware State isn't a very good team, it is the same team that NC State needed a last second shot to beat last week.  Jerai Grant led another balanced scoring attack with 15 points.  Four other players scored in double digits.

 

Clemson finished with 20 assists on 30 made field goals, while only committing 10 turnovers.  As a team, an assist to turnover ratio of 2:1 is very good.  With approximately 7 minutes left and the starters still in the game, Clemson had 16 assists on 23 made field goals with just 5 turnovers.  These stats show that Clemson is starting to play disciplined, team-oriented basketball on the offensive end.  The players are beginning to understand what Brownell is asking of them and they are getting used to running his new offense.  It was bound to take a little time and that was evident in some games earlier in the season.   That's what the out of conference schedule is for.  I don't believe that Clemson's offense is a well oiled machine yet, but there are definite improvements from what we saw earlier in the year.
