Booker Named ACC Player of the Week

Jan. 14, 2008

Clemson, SC – Clemson center Trevor Booker has been named ACC Player of the Week by the Atlantic Coast Sports Media Association. Booker scored 61 points in two games last week.

Booker’s 61 points were the most in consecutive games by a Tiger since Edward Scott had 61 in wins over Virginia and Florida State in 2002-03. Booker had 32 points in a loss to Charlotte last Wednesday, then had 29 in a double overtime win against Florida State. He shot 20-26 from the field in the two games combined. His 61 points in back to back games were the most by a Clemson post player since Horace Grant had 62 over consecutive games in 1986-87.

Booker is the second Clemson player named ACC Player of the Week this year. In December, K.C. Rivers received he honor. This is the first time since the 1992-93 season that two different Clemson players have been named ACC Player of the Week in the same season. Booker is just the second Clemson post player to receive the award in the last 15 years. Akin Akingbala won the Player of the Week in 2005-06.

For the season, Booker is second on the team in scoring with a 12.5 average and he is first in rebounding with a 9.1 figure. He ranks second in the ACC in rebounding and is third in blocked shots.
