“This was a good win for us,” said Clemson Head Coach Trevor Adair. “With forwards Steven Rhyne and Dimelon Westfield hurt, we were glad to take the early lead. Our team showed a lot of character and played hard. We played a great defensive game to preserve the win. Wake Forest is as good of a team that we have played this year. This was not only a good conference win but a good region victory for us.”
