Citadel coach Chuck Driesell had a lot to say about turnovers after the Bulldogs’ 92-51 loss at Clemson on Tuesday, and rightfully so. The Citadel gave up 44 points off 25 turnovers in that game.
The Citadel is averaging 17.3 turnovers per game, and during its current seven-game skid is giving up 18 per game, with 17 at Georgia Tech, 20 at St. Bonaventure and Gardner-Webb and 24 at UNC Greensboro.
