Clemson big Elijah Thomas ready to battle KU's Udoka Azubuike

As well as Clemson’s starting guards Shelton Mitchell, Gabe DeVoe and Marcquise Reed have played on the perimeter, directing the program to its first Sweet 16 appearance since 1997, the Tigers think their starting center could hold the key to toppling Kansas. A 6-foot-9, 237-pound junior, Elijah Thomas might not possess the height or bulk of the Jayhawks’ 7-foot, 280-pound Udoka Azubuike. But Thomas, a member of the ACC’s All-Defensive Team, wasn’t worried about those measurables on the eve of the No. 5 seed Tigers’ matchup with top-seeded KU. By Benton Smith
