“(PJ) Hall is the most improved player on the planet. He played nine minutes a game last year and he’s one of thebetter big guys in the country; he’s a pro, really. He can shoot, go out and [he’s] mobile.” – Mike Krzyzewski (Jan. 25)
“He’s [PJ Hall] a guy that plays with a lot of emotion. He’s competitive. He’s very physical and plays hard on both ends of the floor on every possession. He’s a guy that can consistently score around the basket, but he can shoot the ball from the outside. On both ends, he’s a player that could be a huge factor.” – Hubert Davis (Feb. 8)
“He’s an animal. He’s one of the best bigs in the league [ACC].” – Mike Pegues (Feb. 18)

  • Arguably the Most Improved Player in the ACC, Hall played in 30 games and made 29 starts during a career-year for the sophomore.

  • PJ Hall made the strongest case for most improved player in the ACC. Hall was +11.9 in PPG, +3.7 in RPG, +1.4 in APG and nearly +1.0 block per game. Hall increased his 3-point shooting by nearly 20.0 percent and despite the increased work load, shot 49.3 percent, including a 52.4 effective field goal percentage.

  • Hall led the Tigers in scoring (15.5 ppg) and finished second in rebounding (5.8 rpg), while blocking the most shots (38).

    • He posted a team-best 28 double-digit scoring games, including 25 consecutive outings.

  • He posted 22 points and eight rebounds in a win over Wofford (Nov. 12) – his first 20-point game of his career.

  • Totaled the same output against St. Bonaventure (Nov. 19).

  • Tallied his first career double-double against Drake (Dec. 11) with 22 points and a career-best 13 rebounds.

    • Six offensive rebounds were a career-high.

    • Finished 6-for-15 from the floor and an ultra-impressive 9-for-9 from the foul line.

    • Hall is the first player since Jaron Blossomgame (Feb. 25, 2017 vs. Florida State) to finish at least 9-for-9 at the line in a game. He is also just the fourth Tiger to do so during the Brad Brownell Era at Clemson.

  • Finished 10-for-16 on a career-high made field goals in a 20-point outing during a win at NC State (Jan. 8).

  • He collected multiple blocks in five games this season, including a career-high three against St. Bonaventure (Nov. 19) and South Carolina (Dec. 18).

  • PJ Hall notched a career-high 28 points on the road at Florida State (Feb. 15).

    • It was the most in a road game by a Clemson Tiger since Marcquise Reed scored 28 at Virginia Tech on Feb. 21, 2018.

    • It was his career high and just the fourth game of at least 28 points by a Clemson center in the last 30 years. Hall made 8-13 from the field and 12-13 from the foul line. The only other Clemson centers to score at least 28 points in a game since 1992 are Trevor Booker and Chris Hobbs. Booker did it twice in 2007-08, in consecutive games against Charlotte (32) and Florida State (29). Booker also had a 31-point game as a senior against Western Carolina, but he was a power forward that year. Raymond Sykes was the center in 2009-10.

    • Hall’s scoring average is the best for a Clemson starting center since the 1990-91 season when Dale Davis averaged 17.9 points a game as a senior.


  • Appeared in 21 games off the bench for the Tigers.

  • Averaged 3.5 points and 2.0 rebounds in nearly 10 minutes per contest.

  • Finished shooting 49.2 percent from the floor, including 75.0 percent from the foul line.

  • Scored season-high 10 points in season opener against Mississippi State at the 2020 Space Coast Challenge (Nov. 25).

    • Entered the game with Aamir Simms in foul trouble and finished 5-for-6 from the floor and seven rebounds.

    • Three of the seven boards came on the offensive glass. He also totaled one block.

  • Posted eight points in a home overtime win over NC State (Jan. 5).

    • Scored a hook shot with about 10 seconds remaining in overtime to help seal the Tiger victory 74-70.

  • Totaled six points on 3-for-5 shooting in a win against Syracuse (Feb. 6).
