CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) - Clemson coach Brad Brownell believes he's finally got the depth needed for the Tigers to bounce back from their first losing season in nine years.
The Tigers lost 10 of their final 11 games last season to finish 13-18, which was Brownell's worst record in 10 seasons as a college head coach at UNC Wilmington, Wright State and the Tigers. Brownell says last year's team was hit by injuries to guard Devin Coleman and forwards K.J. McDaniels and Jaron Blossomgame and had to rely on a pair of seniors in Devin Booker and Milt Jennings to carry them much of the year - and that proved too much during Atlantic Coast Conference season.
Even without Booker and Jennings, Brownell sees more bodies to weather the storm in the supersized ACC.
