Clemson Notes:

  • The 1 p.m. tip time between Clemson and Monmouth is a change from the originally announced 2 p.m. start time.
  • The Tigers are 2-1 on the season after wins over Kennesaw State (41-28) on Nov. 10 and South Carolina State (56-48) on Nov. 13, and a loss to No. 4/2 and defending National Champion South Carolina (66-36) on Nov. 16, all three at home at Littlejohn Coliseum.
  • Sophomore Kobi Thornton leads the team in scoring with 10.7 points per game, and in rebounding with 6.7 rebounds per game.
  • Junior point guard Danielle Edwards is second on the team in scoring with 9.0 points per game.
  • Edwards tallied an impressive nine steals on Nov. 13 against South Carolina State, tying the Clemson school record for steals in a single game. Edwards is now one of five Tigers all-time to record nine steals in a game, a feat which was last accomplished 30 years ago by Ramona O’Neal against Virginia on Feb. 14, 1987.
  • Freshman Tylar Bennett has a team-best nine blocked shots on the season, which included three against the Gamecocks on Nov. 16.
  • Clemson and Monmouth squared off exactly a year ago on Nov. 19, 2016, a 60-47 win for the Tigers in West Long Branch, N.J. In that game, Edwards scored a game-high 19 points, along with seven rebounds, four steals and two assists.
  • Fifth-year Clemson head coach Audra Smith’s team is coming off of a 2016-17 season in which it made dramatic improvements, winning 11 more games than the previous season to finish the year with a 15-16 record, including a win over Virginia Tech in the first round of the 2017 ACC Tournament, the program’s first ACC tournament win since the 2014 season.

Promotions:

  • Sunday’s game is the Tigers’ Pediatric Cancer Awareness game. The program will raise awareness for pediatric cancer, while honoring and celebrating Colt Becker, the son of Director of Operations Kathy Becker, as well as two other local children.
  • #TurnItGold t-shirts will be available at the game for those who donate to the cause.
