Bulldogs' size poses early test for Tigers in opener

After a long off-season, Clemson opens the regular season on Wednesday night, in the Space Coast Challenge in Melbourne, Fla. against Mississippi State.

Th Bulldogs boast three straight 20 win seasons but lost their top four scorers and are looking to continue their success with a fresh lineup. But the Tigers return an experienced lineup led by preseason first team All-ACC selection Aamir Simms.

Clemson head coach Brad Brownell knows Mississippi State has created a culture of success and brings a lengthy lineup to the court on Wednesday.

“Coach Howland does an unbelievable job over there and always has big, strong, talented teams,” Brownell said.
