“This is a low point in our season,” said Clemson Head Coach Trevor Adair. “The effort was good for the first 15 minutes and we had chances, but we could not finish. We made some mistakes and we paid for them. That has been the story of the season. Because of injuries, we moved people around. We can’t catch a break. North Carolina was the better team today. I am disappointed not in the lack of effort but the development of the team this season.”
