Keys to the Iowa game


Some keys to the Iowa game for Clemson:

Improved inside play. Milton needs to step it up in this one. He was really pumped up after his 22 points and 14 rebounds against Furman, but his point total was more a result of the opponent than of his stellar play. I will admit, however, that It was nice to see him actually attacking the rim and his performance at the line (8-11) was also encouraging. Millton has had confidence problems throughout his career here. Hopefully his performance against Furman will have him playing confidently against the Hawkeyes. And maybe his success will rub off on Devin, who has looked lazy all year long.

Limit the turnovers. I'm talking to you Tanner. He had five against Gardner-Webb. He thankfully hasn't had that many since, but he is still making poor decisions with the basketball. One point in the first half of the Coastal game really sticks out in my mind. Tanner had terrible passes on back to back possessions, with the first one resulting in a turnover (Tanner got bailed out by a Coastal foul on the second one.).

Cut down on the garbage shots. I don't want to see any of the frontcourt players taking any 3s. One of the reasons Clemson was able to beat Furman was the fact that not a single 3 was attempted by Milton, Devin, or B-Nice. I'd love to see that trend continue. The three have combined to go 3-14 from beyond the arc this year, with Devin (1-5) and B-Nice (0-4) looking especially atrocious.

Clemson has looked pretty bad thus far this year, but Iowa is not a very talented team. If Clemson can attack the basket, cut down on turnovers, and not take any stupid 3s, they have a good chance at winning this game.
