TIGER TRACKS

• Clemson is led in scoring by senior Jaron Blossomgame, who is coming off a season-high 22 points against Oklahoma. He scored 18 in the second half as the Tigers trimmed an 18-point deficit to two over the final minutes.
• Sidy Djitte is playing the best basketball of his career. He produced his third double-double against the Sooners, with 14 points and a career-high 14 rebounds. He also added two blocks and two steals.
• Marcquise Reed has gotten off to a strong start as a Tiger, averaging 11.3 points per game. He has made 16 of his first 17 free throw attempts as well.
• After losing the rebound margin in each of its first three contests, Clemson was +14 on the boards against Oklahoma, thanks in large part to 23 offensive rebounds, most ever by a Brad Brownell coached Tiger team.
