Clemson playing hoops already

Bahamas trip helps Clemson's basketball Tigers, new point guard Stitt bond

Clemson was also allowed to practice for 10 days before the trip, which might have been more valuable than the trip itself. It allowed Stitt to mesh with his new teammates and learn their tendencies before practice begins in mid-October.

“The trip is going to help us from that standpoint,” Purnell said. “There’s no question that if Demontez is going to play a great deal at the point guard position, just as he has to get used to those players, they need to get used to him. I thought the trip started us down that road.”
