The OP Stat of the Game: 7-5, in the ACC, 17: first half points.
Apparently, the Tigers are not meant to win in the state of Florida. Or, anytime we have a chance to do something special, out of the ordinary, or positive.
Dear basketball god(s),
I know you are not supposed to show preference to teams, but it would be nice if you did- especially if one of the teams you preferred was the Tigers. Just look at this:
Our three point shooting was abysmal.
Our free throw shooting was abysmal.
Our first half intensity was abysmal
Our defense against their guards was abysmal.
Mays' shooting was abysmal.
Oglesby's shooting was abysmal.
Rivers' 3 pt shooting was abysmal.
Our ability to get their players to foul and get them foul out was nearly non-existent.
The Tigers were out-classed, out-played, and left whatever they needed back in SC.
And the stats.
FG; FSU = 20-41, Clemson = 20-65
3FG; FSU = 2-10, Clemson = 3-27
FT; FSU = 22-33, Clemson = 12-23
Thanks for your objective consideration of the Tigers.
We have no time to get even more disparaged. We have to avoid Clemson-ing this one up again.
Maybe this isn't the best time to post this, but here is a nice, if not circuitous, article my dad sent me from the State.
