“It’s amazing, you always think you are maybe a little better, we are 3-0 with a couple of great wins,” said Clemson Head Coach Chuck McCuen. However, today’s match proved everybody is good and everybody is hungry. We are a team everyone wants to beat. It was great for Wesley, he was given a great test and he came through. It is definitely great to be tested earl, tough early challenges make you better.”
