CLEMSON, S.C. — Jaron Blossomgame was named to the All-District III Team on Tuesday by the U.S. Basketball Writers Association (USBWA). It was Blossomgame’s second straight season earning the honor. He was recently named third-team All-ACC as well.

The 6-foot-7 forward ranks eighth in Clemson history with 1,668 points and 811 rebounds. He is also tied for third in career starts (122), tied for fifth in 20-point games (30), tied for sixth in free throws (369), seventh in 10-point games (84), eighth in minutes played (3,820) and 10th in field goals (602).
