San Juan Shootout Notebook

    |

* Clemson?s 90-74 win over DePaul on Friday gave the Tigers a 10-0 record
for the 2007-08 season. It marks the third straight season in which
Clemson has started at least 10-0. The Tigers started 11-0 in 2005-06 and
17-0 last season.

* The Tigers posted 90 points in wins over Puerto Rico-Mayaguez and DePaul
in the first two games of the San Juan Shootout. It marks the first time
since the start to the 1994-95 season Clemson has scored 90 points in
consecutive games. The 1994-95 team, coached by Rick Barnes, scored 96 in
the season opener versus Charleston Southern and followed with 98 in a win
over Winthrop.

* Clemson matched a season-high with 12 three-point goals made versus the
Blue Demons. Cliff Hammonds and Terrence Oglesby hit four apiece for the
Tigers, who shot 57.1 percent from long range against DePaul. The Tigers
also had 12 in the win at East Carolina on December 5.

* Six players scored in double figures for Oliver Purnell?s team on Friday
night in the win over DePaul. It marked the first time Clemson had six
double-figure scorers in the same game since a 73-61 win over Maine during
the 2002-03 season.

* Cliff Hammonds improved his three-point accuracy to 50 percent on the
season (26-52) after hitting 4-5 from long range in the win over DePaul.
The senior from Cairo, GA ranks third in school history in career
three-pointers made with 210, just four shy of the second-place total of
214 made by Will Solomon from 1998-2001.

* Trevor Booker recorded his third double-double of the season and sixth
of his career after posting 18 points and 10 rebounds in the win over
DePaul. He was Clemson?s high scorer Friday night and 10 of his points
came from the free throw line (10-12). He is nearly averaging a
double-double at 9.7 points and 9.8 rebounds per game.

* K.C. Rivers notched 10 points in Friday?s contest and has now reached
double figures in the scoring column in 15 straight games, the second
longest streak by an individual player in the ACC.

* Demontez Stitt scored a season-high 14 points on Friday versus DePaul.
The freshman out of Matthews, NC also contributed five assists against
only two turnovers. Stitt was 6-6 from the free throw line to up his
season average to 86 percent.

* Terrence Oglesby scored 21 points in just 19 minutes of play in the
opening round win over Puerto Rico-Mayaguez. It was the second straight
game he scored more points than minutes played. He had 22 total points in
the road win at East Carolina in 21 minutes of play. He became the first
player in school history to post more points than minutes played in
consecutive games.

* Raymond Sykes has set his career-high in three straight games for the
Tigers. Sykes had eight points in the win at East Carolina, then trumped
that effort with 11 in the game with Puerto Rico-Mayaguez. He then
tallied 12 points in a career-high 28 minutes played in the win over
DePaul. Needless to say, it was the first back-to-back double figure
scoring games in his career as a Tiger.
