Social media reacts to Clemson’s heartbreaking loss to Alabama in the Elite 8

Brad Brownell and the Clemson men’s basketball team’s impressive journey in the 2024 NCAA Tournament ended in the Elite 8 with a tough 89-82 loss to Alabama. Despite staying competitive throughout the game, Clemson’s own mistakes and Alabama’s strong shooting in the second half proved to be their downfall.

Clemson, known for their proficiency in free throws, struggled at the line, making only 8 of 16 attempts. This was a crucial factor in their loss, as they couldn’t capitalize on key opportunities.

On the other hand, Alabama excelled in three-point shooting, hitting an impressive 44.4% from beyond the arc, with Mark Sears leading the charge with 7 of 14 successful attempts. Despite Clemson’s valiant effort, they couldn’t overcome Alabama’s offensive prowess, ending their remarkable tournament run just short of the Final Four. Nonetheless, Clemson’s performance this season marks one of the best in program history, showcasing their resilience and determination on the court.

With wins and losses come reactions. Here is a look at how social media reacted to Clemson’s heartbreaking loss.
