CLEMSON, S.C. — One day after earning the ACC’s Player of the Week honor, Clemson forward Jaron Blossomgame was named Naismith Trophy National Player of the Week on Tuesday. He helped Clemson defeat two top-10 teams in consecutive games last week.

Blossomgame averaged 21.0 points, 6.5 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 2.0 blocked shots per game as the Tigers defeated Duke (9/6) and Miami (8/9). In the win over the Blue Devils, he was 8-8 at the free throw line and had a dunk with 13 seconds left that gave the Tigers a three-point advantage. He was a major factor in Clemson overcoming a 12-point first half deficit.

Against Miami, the Alpharetta, Ga., native scored 17 of his ACC career-high 25 points in the second half. He propelled the Tigers to their third straight win against a ranked opponent, a first in program history. Blossomgame made 9-15 field goals, including 2-3 from three-point range, and was 5-5 at the charity stripe against the Hurricanes.
