Stockman, Clifton to Transfer
This past season Clifton averaged 3.2 points and 1.8 rebounds per game.
CLEMSON --Sources close to the Clemson basketball program say rising juniors Tony Stockman and Dwon Clifton will transfer at the end of the current school year. The source said both players completed the necessary paperwork early Thursday. Clifton is expected to transfer to UNC-Greensboro while Stockman’s future is unclear at this point.
Head coach Larry Shyatt is
currently in a coaching convention in Atlanta and was not immediately available for comment. In a release Shyatt said, "Tony and Dwon have decided to transfer. Both have indicated to me an interest in playing at a school that is closer to their respective homes. They are fine young men who have represented the program well. They both worked hard to overcome medical problems this past year. Both will remain in school the rest
of the semester and we will help them any way we can in the transfer process."
Stockman, a native of Medina, OH, was the top sophomore scorer in the ACC in 2001-02 with a 12.2 average, second best on the Clemson team. He made 80 three-point goals to lead Clemson in that category. It was the fifth most for a single season in Clemson history. Stockman ranked second on the team in assists with 64, shot 35.1 percent from the field, 36.4 percent from three-point range, and 68.6 percent from the foul line.
