Hope this finds you well. A few points, and we’ll start it up.
1. Guard Jason Morris will be a game-time decision. He warmed up with the team, but will test out his foot sprain just before the game starts. As I write, he’s come out for layups and is moving pretty well. If he can play, he’ll start. If not, coach Brian Gregory will have Mfon Udofia, Pierre Jordan and Nick Foreman as his guards. The double jeopardy of losing Morris is that he could give minutes at either forward spot.
2. Gregory said that his primary concern with a thin bench is defending Clemson’s transition. To start with, that means limiting turnovers.
3. Watch out for guard Andre Young from Albany and Deerfield-Winsdor School (alma mater of Tony Zenon). He is 25 for 39 on 3-pointers against Georgia Tech over his career, 64 percent.
Enjoy the game.
