ALBANY, GA (WALB) - After serving as Clemson's sixth man for the past two seasons, former Deerfield-Windsor star Andre Young is enjoying his role as the Tigers starting point guard this year.
Young got a chance to play in front of family, friends and his former high school coach in Sunday's game at Florida State. The Seminoles always bring out the best in Andre who had 11 points all in the first half. Unfortunately for Young and the Tigers, FSU rallied in the second half to win the ACC opener for both teams.
11 points is about what Andre Young has been averaging through his first nine games this season. He says it's easier to get into his shooting rhythm when he is starting but the most important thing to him is being on the court at the end of the game.
Young said "It is definitely nice. Just got to go out there and play hard no matter what. Whether you are starting or not. The big thing is who is finishing. I am out there towards the end of the game. I want to continue that role."
Clemson basketball teams hosts Savannah State on Friday.
The Tigers will play Georgia Tech in Atlanta on February 5th.
