November 16, 2012 in Division I
Lansing Sexton‘s Anthony Clemmons seems to have figured out the key to getting minutes as a young player at the Division I level. The freshman point guard at Iowa had a strong defensive performance off the bench for the Hawkeyes in a season-opening win over Central Michigan. From the Telegraph Herald in Iowa:
Clemmons, known for his defensive prowess, had a big role in Iowa’s stand. The freshman logged 15 minutes in the second half — more than he played in the entire season opener on Friday — to help eliminate Central Michigan’s penetration and outside shooting.
“They didn’t play like freshmen,” McCaffery said of the guards.
Clemmons chipped in nine points, including a 3-pointer with 5 seconds left in the first half to give the Hawkeyes a 29-26 lead at intermission.
