Scott new radio voice at Furman
    GREENVILLE, S.C. (AP) — The voice of Clemson baseball and women's basketball is taking over as the new voice of Furman athletics.
    Officials at Furman announced Wednesday that Dan Scott would succeed long-time play-by-play man Chuck Hussion, who left to become general manager at IMG College this spring.
    Scott worked with the Clemson Tiger Sports Network since 2004 and also hosted football's "The Fifth Quarter Show."
    Scott will call football, basketball and baseball games for the Paladins. He said he hoped to live up to the standards Hussion set during his 17-season run behind the microphone for the Paladins.
