Despite playing without its starting power forward and center — Hunter Tyson and PJ Hall, respectively — Clemson went 2-0 last week. During the wins over Wake Forest and Boston College, head coach Brad Brownell received massive contributions from veteran guard Chase Hunter.
Brownell gave a brief update on the status for both Tyson and Hall during the weekly coaches teleconferences. The Tigers have two games scheduled for this week, the last of the regular season — both at home: Georgia Tech (Wed.) and Virginia Tech (Sat.).
Currently, Hall’s status remains up in the air. Hall has battled a foot injury for large stretches of the season. Tyson, however, will take part in 5-on-5 drills at practice today. The 6-foot-8 senior forward (broken clavicle) may be able to give it a go vs. Georgia Tech.
Clemson MBB HC Brad Brownell is still unsure about PJ Hall, but Hunter Tyson will go through 5-on-5 drills today. There's a chance he can play Wednesday, but "it's not guaranteed at all," Brownell said. Chances are higher he plays this weekend.
