Clemson senior forward Donte Grantham will miss the remainder of the season after tearing his ACL during Saturday’s game, the team announced.
Grantham suffered the injury in the second half of a 67-58 win over Notre Dame. His right knee buckled after he was fouled from behind.
I’m disappointed that Donte’s career at Clemson had to end this way, coach Brad Brownell said in a statement. He was putting together a terrific season statistically, but he really helps this team in so many ways.
I wasn’t really hitting shots, Knox said. Nothing from the 3-point line, so it was good to see I made a couple.
A brief moment of silence was held before tipoff to honor the victims and first responders of Tuesday’s fatal shooting at Marshall County High School in Benton, Kentucky. Two students died, 12 were wounded and five others injured in the shooting. Calipari, who has attended the Hoop Fest there, said news of the incident made him literally nauseous and he added, There’s nothing I can say, other than I’ll be praying for them tomorrow at Mass. I’ll take Communion for them, light a candle for them.
Coats Fulks called it unexpected and incredibly difficult news” for Robinson and her family, but added that our team will be fighting with her and supporting her and her family every step of the way.”
Robinson started six of the nine games she played this season, averaging 4.6 points and 3.9 rebounds for the Wildcats.
School officials say players and coaches will wear orange — the color of leukemia awareness — during pregame warm-ups to honor her.
Walton said in his experience, players have breakout offensive games when they’re not thinking about scoring.
To me, guys normally have nights like that when they stop thinking about offense, Walton said. You kind of get lost in doing other things when you’re as gifted as he is offensively. That’s when you have nights like that.
