Brownell ready for the challenge at North Carolina

Head coach Brad Brownell was pleased with No. 17 Clemson’s 72-63 victory over No. 18 Miami Saturday afternoon in Littlejohn Coliseum. It was a refreshing win for the Tigers as they were coming off of a one-point loss at NC State last Thursday night.

“Fantastic win today,” Brownell said afterward. “I thought they showed a lot of heart, toughness and grit in this game. I thought we were battling a little bit of mental and physical fatigue at times. Miami is a very strong, athletic team that does a lot of things really well.”

The Tigers (15-2, 4-1 ACC) now have a new task at hand as they travel to Chapel Hill this Tuesday to take on North Carolina (13-4, 2-2 ACC).

Clemson will try to make history and win in Chapel Hill for the first time ever, breaking an 0-58 record there.

“Your guys have to be in those environments (road games) and you have to embrace it as a player,” Brownell said. “You can’t be worried about what’s going on outside of the lines. They are going to call you names when you’re in warmups, when you’re sitting on the bench.

“Our guys have competed and fought. We’ve battled and we just have to keep doing it. That’s what you have to do; you have to embrace it.”
