Clemson basketball notes

• Clemson returns home after a two-game ACC road trip that resulted in losses at Florida State (77-68) and NC State (69-67). Pittsburgh has lost three in a row, losing most recently, 66-51, at Louisville on Saturday.

• Clemson will look for its fifth-straight victory in its series against Pittsburgh and its second ACC victory this

season.

• Marcquise Reed moved into 27th on the all-time scoring list following his performance on Jan. 26 against NC

State. Reed now has 1,190 points in his Clemson career.

• The graduate senior guard is averaging 19.3 points, 5.6 rebounds, 3.3 assists and 2.1 steals per contest this

season. To put that into perspective, Reed is the only player in a Power 5 conference to average at least 19.0

points, 5.5 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 2.0 steals per game. Furthermore, he is the only player in the entire country to post that stat line.

• Reed has now posted 57 double-digit scoring games in his Clemson career and is 13 performances shy of tying

for 16th all-time in Clemson history.

• Reed posted the program’s 25th “Triple Leadership” in Clemson history with 19 points, eight rebounds and two

assists at NC State (Jan. 26). It marked his third over the last two seasons and second this season.

• Elijah Thomas posted three blocks in the Tigers’ contest at NC State (Jan. 26). Thomas ranks 10th all-time in

Clemson history in blocks (136) and sits tied for sixth all-time in blocks per game (1.74) with former Tiger great

Dale Davis.

Clyde Trapp showed off his ability to crash the offensive glass last time out against the Wolfpack. The sophomore guard collected a career-best four offensive rebounds en route to a seven point, six rebound effort. The last Clemson guard to grab four offensive rebounds in a game was Avry Holmes (4 vs. Boston College - March 4, 2017).
