Clemson’s only senior on the roster, Adam Allenspach, did not play in Clemson’s win over NC State. He played just seven minutes and did not score at North Carolina, then missed the Wake Forest game altogether. The 7-1 center, who has played 110 games in his Clemson career, has missed time due to inflamation of the Sacroilliac Joint (where hip meeds the spine). The problem caused back spasms and a loss of motion and mobility. He is day to day and would be classified as questionable for the Georgia Tech game.
Allenspach had surgery this past summer to repair a herniated disk. He has been troubled by the back problems off and on since last year. He first went down due to the injury last year at Duke when he collapsed just six minutes into the game due to the pain.
Allenspach has had many highlight moments this year. He was still tied for first in the league in double-doubles with six heading into the Wake Forest game. He had four in succession until the streak came to an end against Cincinnati during a game in Puerto Rico.
Allenspach had scored 17 points and grabbed 12 rebounds vs. Wofford Dec. 16 and had 15 points and15 rebounds at South Carolina, then 20 points and 10 rebounds vs. Winthrop. The last Tiger to post four consecutive double-doubles was Sharone Wright, who last did it his sophomore year in 1992-93.
For the season, Allenspach is still third on the club in scoring and first in rebounding per game. He has averaged 10.1 points and 7.1 rebounds per contest and leads the team in blocked shots with 12. The rebounding average is still eighth in the league. For his career, he has averaged 6.6 points, 4.4 rebounds and has shot 70.1 percent from the foul line, one of the top percentages in history for a Clemson center.
