Clemson Men’s Basketball To Host Wofford Saturday

Dec. 16, 2000

CLEMSON, S.C. – Clemson (5-2) will see its first action in nearly a week when the Tigers host Wofford (4-4) in men’s basketball action at Littlejohn Coliseum on Saturday at 4 p.m.

Clemson did not have any games scheduled during the past week since the school was taking fall semester exams. Head coach Larry Shyatt’s club has not seen game action since last Saturday when the team traveled to Columbia, S.C. and lost to in-state rival South Carolina, 76-64.

Saturday’s game is the 56th meeting between the Tigers and Terriers. The two schools have played just three times since Wofford began Division I play in the 1995-96 season. Clemson won that meeting 77-28 in February. The Tigers also won the next year, claiming an 89-49 victory. Wofford defeated the Tigers last year with a 79-74 win at Littlejohn Coliseum.

Clemson is led in scoring by junior guard Will Solomon. The East Hartford, Conn. native is averaging 18.8 ppg. Senior center Adam Allenspach leads the team in rebounding with a 9.0 rpg average. He is also second on the team in points scored with 12.4 ppg.

As a team, Wofford is off to its best start since beginning NCAA Division I play in 1995-96. Head coach Richard Johnson’s Terriers are 4-0 at home, but have lost all four of their road games at Georgia Tech, South Carolina, Boston College and Alabama.

Senior guard Ian Chadwick leads Wofford with 19.8 ppg while junior center Kenny Hastle is the team’s top rebounder with 6.8 rpg.
