Oliver Purnell arrived at Clemson with a plan for turning the ACC's most woebegone basketball outpost into a national contender.
"Our plan, our model, was to play a lot of young guys early and hope that as they got older, they'd give us an opportunity to move up toward the middle of the league," he said. "And if you get in the middle of this league, you're in national contention."
