Prognosis good for Clemson’s Williams, but he may miss season

Clemson receiver Mike Williams has a fracture in his neck that Tigers football coach Dabo Swinney said might keep him out all season. Swinney said Sunday that an MRI showed a small fracture after Clemson’s 1,000-yard receiver slammed into the padded goalpost support in the first quarter Saturday against Wofford. Williams was down for several moments and eventually strapped onto cart and taken off the field. Williams was back with his teammates by the end of the game, wearing a neck brace and moving comfortably. Swinney said Williams’ prognosis was good for a full recovery and a return to football. Swinney was not sure when or if Williams would play again this season. He said the only treatment is to wait for the fracture to heal on its own. – AP

Seminoles on verge

The Florida State Seminoles have never won a national postseason tournament. The program has played in nine consecutive tournaments, including four straight NCAA appearances and five in the NIT, but each has ended in a loss. The Seminoles didn’t hang their heads when left out of the NCAA tournament, and now one of the No. 1 seeds in the NIT has advanced to the semifinals for the first time since 1997. A win against another No. 1, Minnesota, tonight (4 p.m., ESPN2) puts them in the championship game. Another top seed, SMU, plays a No. 3 seed, Clemson, in the second semifinal in the traditional doubleheader at Madison Square Garden in New York. – AP
