What Tony Vitello Said About Clemson

On what he knows about Clemson

“I’m glad you mentioned his name [Clemson coach Erik Bakich] – he’s about as organized and thorough of a guy as they come. I think his team kind of mirrored that this year, if you had the chance to follow them. We are all wrapped up in the non-conference games too, but our league play. We keep an eye on people and when you get the bracket, we look at all three teams. Lipscomb and Charlotte, maybe a little bit more familiar because of the guys. But when you look at them, they play organized and well-coached ball. They rarely make mistakes. Today, I know it was back and forth, but obviously there was some separation between the two clubs when we were hitting in the cages. We almost got hit with a ball.”
