Clemson won its ninth ACC game Wednesday; it is only the FIFTH time in program history (in 63 ACC seasons) the Tigers have won at least nine of their first 14 ACC games. It should be noted that the 1953-54 team and 1971-79 teams played fewer than 14 league games.
The Tigers won their seventh ACC home game, most since the 2010-11 team that also won seven in Brad Brownell’s first season.
Clemson has an opportunity to set a home ACC record with a win on March 1 against Virginia. The record of seven ACC home wins in a single season is shared by six teams.
The Tigers matched their win total from the entire 2014-15 season, notching their 16th victory Wednesday.
Jaron Blossomgame scored double figures for the 22nd time this season.
Blossomgame scored a game-high 23 points, his 12th game with at least 20 points this season. That puts him one shy of K.J. McDaniels’ single-season mark of 13 from two years ago, when McDaniels was a first-team All-ACC player.
Avry Holmes reached double figures for the 14th time, finishing with 17 points. It was his third game scoring exactly 17 in Clemson’s last five contests.
Holmes’ defense was the key factor for the Tigers, as he held BC’s leading scorer Eli Carter to just 1-17 field goals. It matched Carter’s low field goal total this season and was his worst single-game shooting percentage.
Donte Grantham was 3-7 from three; it was the second time in Clemson’s last three games the sophomore hit at least three long-range shots.
Grantham also scored double figures for the 14th time this season, and for the fourth time in Clemson’s last five games overall.
Gabe DeVoe hit multiple three-point goals in a game for the first time since the Syracuse contest on January 5. DeVoe finished with six points and two steals in 18 minutes.
