Stitt giving the Tigers what they have been lacking

CLEMSON â€" Demontez Stitt glides down the court with his head up, always looking to make a play. When the sophomore point guard reaches the top of the key, there's one player standing between him and the basket. With a subtle head fake and a wicked crossover dribble, Stitt gets to the basket in two smooth strides, leaving the baffled defender in his wake. The next time down the floor, Stitt penetrates into the lane, but instead of taking the short jump shot, he shuffles the ball out to a wide-open Terrence Oglesby, who hits the easy 3-pointer.

Davidson helping ticket sales

Last season, Davidson's run to the Elite Eight of the NCAA Tournament raised the visibility of the Southern Conference. This season, the Wildcats and their All-America guard Stephen Curry are helping raise SoCon ticket sales. The College of Charleston reports that its Dec. 29 home game against No. 22 Davidson is already a sellout in the Cougars' new 5,100-seat Carolina First Arena.

Bucs no match for Seminoles

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. â€" Facing its second major-conference opponent this week, the Charleston Southern men's basketball team was no match for the Florida State Seminoles. Florida State (11-1) never trailed en route to an easy 71-48 victory over the Buccaneers on Thursday night. Soloman Alabi scored 16 points and pulled down 14 rebounds to pace the Seminoles, who shot 45 percent from the field and outrebounded CSU, 44-37.

Boyd's Epiphany

CHARLOTTE â€" In isolation, and in a city and state he didn't know very well, Cory Boyd ran up against one of those turning-point moments a couple of months ago. Those moments aren't uncommon among us. But Boyd's life has been anything but common.

The madness all started with Frankie

Bobby Cremins, fresh from his 500th victory, goes for No. 501 tonight at "The House John Kresse Built" â€" Cremins' pet name for Carolina First Arena â€" against a UNC Wilmington team from the town Michael Jordan made famous. Seems like sweet coincidence that Cremins, Kresse and MJ all have ties to Frankie McGuire, who died at age 57 Sunday night in Columbia. But the College of Charleston's current head coach, the Cougars' legendary former head coach and the star of "Space Jam" are just three of thousands of basketball lives significantly influenced by Frank McGuire's beloved son, who was jolly and loyal and intensely interested in friends and sports.
