The Tigers also expect to have a couple of offensive-minded players next year. Patrick Rooks missed last year because of hip surgery after looking as if he could be the team’s most reliable long-range shooter, Brownell said.

Clemson athletic director Dan Radakovich has reached out to Brownell about a contract extension, the coach said.

“I’m very proud of what we got done this season,” he said. “We’d certainly love to take the next step.”
