QUICK FACTS • Clemson clinched its fourth straight 20-win season when it won at Florida State on Sunday. That is the most consecutive 20-win seasons in Clemson history. Oliver Purnell now has the most 20-win seasons in Clemson history with four. Bill Foster had the previous record with three.

• If Clemson can reach the NCAA Tournament this year it would give the Tigers three straight years in the event, tying the school record for consecutive NCAA appearances. Clemson also had three in a row under Rick Barnes from 1996-98.

• Clemson has 29 wins over Georgia Tech in Littlejohn Coliseum, more than any other school.

• Trevor Booker will make his 131st consecutive start on Tuesday on his “Senior Night.” He will break the Clemson record for consecutive starts. Cliff Hammonds also had 130 consecutive starts from 2004-08.
