Hello, VUhoops.com-

I'm very impressed by the comprehensive coverage, the feeders, and the layout on VUhoops.com.

I also liked this post, with the numbers per Clemson/Villanova. Accordingly, I thought you and your readers might be interested in a detailed Clemson preview which I wrote for my own site. You can find it here.
