Press Release - Monday, March 10, 2003 4:44 PM
    |

Ed Scott is the first Clemson point guard in 43 years to be named first-team All-ACC.

Clemson, SC-Clemson guard Edward Scott was named first-team All-ACC
by the Atlantic Coast Sports Media Association and the Associated
Press on Monday. He is the first Clemson point guard in 43 years to
be named first-team All-ACC.


Overall, Scott is just the 10th player in Clemson history to
earn first-team honors, the first since Will Solomon in 1999-00.
Scott is just the second Clemson selection in the last 13 years.

Scott led Clemson in scoring (18.0) and assists (5.6) this
year and hopes to enhance those numbers in the upcoming ACC
Tournament. He has 485 points, 98 rebounds and 151 assists. When
he gets two more rebounds and 15 more points he will become the first
player in Clemson history to record 500 points, 150 assists and 100
rebounds in a season.

Scott was a two-time selection as ACC Player of the Week Feb.
15-22, the first player in Clemson history to be selected in
consecutive weeks. He was named National Player of the Week by Dick
Vitale and Andy Katz of ESPN for his 61-points in Clemson wins over
Virginia and Florida State.

The native of Eastover, SC is the ironman of the ACC, leading
the conference in minutes per game at 38.4. He played the complete
game 12 times this year, twice as many as any other ACC player.

Scott enters the ACC Tournament with 1215 points, 427
rebounds and 585 career assists. He is one of just nine players in
ACC history to record at least 1000 points, 400 rebounds and 500
assists in a career.

"This is a well deserved honor for Edward Scott," said
Clemson Head Coach Larry Shyatt. 'He has meant so much to our
program on the floor, but he has also meant so much as a team leader.
He has shown improvement every year. We are very proud of his
accomplishments and the way he has represented Clemson University."

Quotes on Edward Scott

"Edward Scott distributes the basketball. He has been called
upon to do more scoring this year and he has responded to challenges
in a positive way. Clemson is improved under Larry Shyatt and Scott
hasn't received as much national publicity as he has deserved. He is
on my first-team All-ACC team." Dick Vitale, ESPN


"If I were starting a team in this league I would pick Edward
Scott as my point guard. He has what it takes to run an offense in
this league and is a terrific leader. Against Cincinnati this year
he made Bob Huggins's team back down. You rarely see that done
against Cincinnati." Billy Packer, CBS Sports


"Edward Scott is a first-team All-ACC player. When you look
at what he has done in February, he has really had an impact on
Clemson's recent victories over North Carolina, Virginia and Florida
State. He has put up some great numbers against quality
competition." Digger Phelps, ESPN


"We wanted to take Clemson out of their offense by making
Scott take tough shots. We accomplished that, but he still scored 20
points and Clemson won the game," Cincinnati Assistant Coach Dan Peters


"He is one of the best guards we will play. We understand
how valuable he is to their team. He is the perfect example of a
college basketball player. He came in and graduated to a far higher
level each year. I really respect him." South Carolina Head Coach Dave Odom


"He is one of my favorite players in the the ACC. He's a no
nonsense, blue-collar kind of guy. It took a five-man commitment to
contain him," Wake Forest Head Coach Skip Prosser


"This year, I would definitely say he's among the top 10
point guards in the nation. It depends on what a team needs in the
NBA, but he will get a shot at the next level." Phil Ford, Fox SportsNet
