Streaks and Notes

Clemson is coming off a 78-63 victory over North Carolina onThursday. That was Clemson’s largest margin of victory over the TarHeels since January 2, 1980 when Bill Foster’s Tigers won atLittlejohn Coliseum, 93-76. Thursday’s win was Clemson’s first atLittlejohn Coliseum since Feb. of 1994. A victory for Clemson inRaleigh on Saturday would climax a noteworthy week for the Tigers.Clemson must play NC State on the road on just one day of rest. TheTigers have not stopped an ACC team on the road on one days restafter playing an ACC game, since 1972-73. That is a 20-game streak.Clemson continued its incredible rebounding success against NorthCarolina. The Tar Heels entered the game ranked number-one in thenation in rebounding, with an average margin of 11 rebounds a game.Clemson turned the tide against the Tar Heels, winning therebounding, 39-28. Clemson is now +23 in rebound margin in twogames against the Tar Heels. Clemson has been out-rebounded in anACC game all year and has been beaten on the boards in only threegames all season. Tony Christie had his top game of the season inthe victory over North Carolina. The senior scored 15 points on6-11 shooting, including 3-6 on three-point shots. It was his firstdouble-figure scoring game of the season. He became Clemson’scareer three-point goal shooter among forwards. He now has 92 forhis career, one more than Anthony Jenkins made in his career.Clemson travels to Reynolds Coliseum for the final time thisweekend. Clemson is just 8-29 in history in the 50-year-oldfacility, but the Tigers have won four of the last five.Ironcially, Clemson’s only loss there the last five years tookplace in 1996-97, a season in which the Tigers had a 23-10 recordand ranked 8th in the final USA Today poll, Clemson’s highest finalranking in history. NC State defeated Clemson in Raleigh that year,58-54, giving Herb Sendek his first ACC win as Wolfpack coach.Larry Shyatt’s first ACC win at Clemson this year was against thePack. Terrell McIntyre is getting closer to the 1500 point,500-assist club. He has 1583 points after his 25-point performanceagainst North Carolina. He now has 491 assists and thus needs justnine assists to become the 13th player in ACC history with 1500points and 500 assists. Andrius Jurkunas has come on strong oflate. He has been Clemson’s top three point threat of late, hitting13 of his last 27 from long range over six games. He is 19 for hislast 36 overall from the field. Clemson’s Harold Jamison would beleading the nation in field goal percentage if he had enough madefield goals. He is averaging just 4.86 made field goals per gameand you need 5.0 to qualify for the national stats. Still,Jamison’s .704 is on a record pace in terms of ACC history and his.603 for his career is a Clemson record. Jamison has made 15 of hislast 18 shots from the field. Harold Jamison needs just 4 reboundsto become the sixth player in Clemson history to record 800rebounds.
