Clemson, SC-- Clemson senior guard Demontez Stitt has been named first-team All-ACC Tournament. Stitt scored 45 points in Clemson’s two games in the ACC Tournament, 20 in the first round victory against Boston College on Friday, and 25 in the semifinal game on Saturday against North Carolina.


Stitt became the first Clemson player in 18 years to have consecutive games of at least 20 points in the same ACC Tournament. Chris Whitney was the last Clemson player to do it, as he had at least 20 points that year against Florida State and Georgia Tech. Stitt’s 22.5 scoring average in the two games, ranked second to Harrison Barnes of North Carolina in scoring average in the tournament.

Stitt made 17-35 shots from the field, 10-15 from the foul line, collected 10 rebounds, eight assists and four steals in helping the Tigers to a victory over Boston College and a narrow overtime loss to number-one seed North Carolina.

Stitt was joined on the first team by Harrison Barnes and Tyler Zeller of North Carolina, and Kyle Singler and Nolan Smith of Duke.

Stitt is the first Clemson player to make first-team All-Tournament since the 2008 event when K.C. Rivers and Trevor Booker were first-team. That year Clemson played in the championship game. Stitt is just the seventh Clemson player to make first-team All-ACC Tournament in the 58 years of the event.
