“We weren’t sharp tonight,” said Clemson Head Coach Trevor Adair. “I was hoping we would feed off the momentum from our win over N.C. State last Friday. You cannot have a mental letdown. Our finishing was not good tonight. However a 4-0 win was good. We will have to learn to break down the other team when they pack players back to defend. We will have to practice hard and get ready for the Clemson Invitational this weekend.”
