Let the Bobo era begin, Purnell goes for 100

Oliver Purnell will go for his 100th victory tonight against the Tigers of Savannah State.

The SS Tigers are 4-0 against the UNO Privateers, the Coastal Carolina Chanticleers, UNF Ospreys, and the Brewton Parker College Barons. However, all of their victories have come in Savannah. In these games, their point total has decreased about 10 points per game:
   DATE            OPPONENT                       W/L    SCORE  ATTEND
------------ -------------------- --- ----- ------
11/14/08 BREWTON PARKER COLLE W 83-45 1788
11/16/08 UNIV. OF NORTH FLORI W 75-60 743
11/18/08 COASTAL CAROLINA W 66-65 1155
11/22/08 UNIV. NEW ORLEANS W 54-44 644

The Tigers have two players averaging double-digits and two with 9.5ish ppg. It could be close early, but the Clemson Tigers will not let the boys from down south prevail in Littlejohn.

Also tonight, Romanian Tiger, Catalin 'Bobo' Baicu will make his collegiate debut. However, OP says,
"We're 5-0 and we're certainly not going to abandon the things that we've been doing in order to work somebody in, but hopefully he'll get the chance to get his feet wet," Purnell said. "Now he's a part of our team, and he'll have an opportunity to get in the mix." - from the Greenville News
Right now, the Tigers are spreading the offense around with Oglesby, 13.4 ppg, KC Rivers, 13.0 ppg, Booker, 11.2 ppg, Sykes, 9.4 ppg, Stitt, 9.8 ppg, Potter 8 ppg. Still, the Tigers need to take care of the ball, as they average 17.6 TO/game. Booker has controlled the boards for us, grabbing 26% of our total rebounds. He has to keep this up, but Sykes needs to take a bigger role on the glass. And still with the FT%?

Are we cursed: (Results 1 - 10 of about 11,600 for clemson free throw curse. (0.27 seconds)

The game will not be televised; however, tickets are still available.
