Buckner, McIntyre Share Bowie Award

May 19, 1998

CLEMSON, SC–Greg Buckner and Terrell McIntyre shared the Paul Bowie Award as Co-MVPs of the Clemson basketball team for the third straight year. Presentation of that award and many others were made Tuesday night at the Clemson Men’s Basketball Awards Banquet at Littlejohn Coliseum.

Buckner, a senior, and McIntyre, a junior, have led Clemson to the NCAA Tournament each of the last three years, a first in Clemson history, and each year they have been named co-MVPs of the Tiger team. This past season, Buckner led the team in scoring with a 16.3 average, while McIntyre had a 13.9 average and led the team in three-point goals, free throw percentage and assists.

Buckner also won the Spartanburg Tipoff Award as the team’s top defensive player. The native of Hopkinsville, KY ended his career third in Clemson history in scoring and third in steals. He started 122 consecutive games, an all-time Clemson record.

McIntyre also won the Sumter County Award for the Most Hustle. He led the team in steals with 58 and enters the 1998-98 season ranked second in Clemson history in three-point goals. He is one of just three Clemson players in history to record 1000 points and 300 assists, the first to do it after his junior year.

Harold Jamison won three awards on Tuesday evening. The 6-9 frontcourt player won the Greenville Tipoff Club Award as the top rebounder and the Columbia Club Award as the leader in field goal percentage. It is the third straight year Jamison has won both awards, the first player in Clemson history to lead the Tigers in both categories three consecutive years.

Jamison split the Lynch Award as the team’s most improved player. Mohamed Woni shared the honor with Jamison. Woni shot 52.3 percent from the field and averaged 3.7 points per game. He made 58 percent of his field goals in ACC play. Jamison averaged 9.8 points and 7.3 rebounds per game. Both players improved in scoring, rebounding and field goal percentage over the previous season.

Tom Wideman, who was named Academic All-District 3 by the NCAA this year, won the team’s academic award for the third straight year. He was a dean’s list student for the entire academic year.
