Clemson's Brad Brownell holds season wrap-up news conference, expects significant improvment next year after team finished 13-18.
Clemson, SC -
Clemson basketball coach Brad Brownell said Wednesday that he expects his nine returning players to step up their games next season both physically and mentally after the Tigers finished 13-18, losing 10 of their last 11.
It was Brownell's first losing season in 11 years as a head coach and the first time Clemson ended up with more losses than wins since the '03-'04 campaign.
Brownell indicates he hopes to confirm soon whether sophomore swingman Damarcus Harrison will return next season or opt to take his two year Mormon mission. He expects to meet soon with the Greenwood native.
The coach notes he has one scholarship left for this year's recruiting class and his goal remains to land a big man, possibly from the junior college ranks, to ease the departure of inside players Devin Booker and Milton Jennings.
