Clemson Grit: Brad Brownell says Demontez Stitt was the embodiment of grit

Clemson Grit. Those two words were a driving force behind Clemson’s thrilling run to the Sweet 16 this past season, a mantra that took a life of its own. It didn’t start this season, however, not in the mind of head coach Brad Brownell.

Clemson missed a 3-point shot with 79 seconds left, and its deficit never got any closer than the final score of 80-76 in a loss to Kansas as its breakthrough season ended at 25-10 and with its first Sweet 16 appearance in 21 years.

Gabe DeVoe saved the best for last. Clemson’s senior guard almost single-handedly brought Clemson back from a 20-point second half deficit, scoring a career-high 31 points on 10-for-17 shooting in his final game as a Tiger. Clemson lost to Kansas, 80-76, in the NCAA Tournament Friday night, but the Tigers made a brilliant rally in a Sweet 16 game, and DeVoe played maybe his best game with the nation tuned in.
