* Point guard Edward Scott has scored at least 20 points in six of his last seven games. Maryland is the only team to hold Scott under 20 points in the last seven dating to Feb. 12. He is averaging 23.7 points per game during the stretch. Scott had 21 points, five rebounds, six assists and four steals in the three-point loss to NC State last Wednesday. He led Clemson in scoring, rebounding and assists in the same game for the third time this year. He is now Clemson’s career and single season leader in “Triple Leaderships”.

* Clemson leads the ACC in fewest turnovers committed per game. Clemson is committing just 13.65 turnover per game. The Tigers have averaged just 9.8 turnovers per outing over the last five games and have committed 10 turnovers or less in four of the last five contests. Clemson has a +19 turnover margin over the last two games, but has lost both contests.

* Clemson’s frontcourt had a solid game in the loss to NC State. Tomas Nagys scored 13 points and Chris Hobbs hit 4-4 shots from the field and scored 10. It marked the first time since Jan. 14 that two Clemson frontcourt players scored in double figures in the same game.

* Clemson freshman Shawan Robinson has made .462 of his three-point shots this year. That would be the fourth best three-point goal percentage in Clemson history for a season if the season ended today.

* Clemson has 15 overall wins this season, already eclipsing the total of 13 it had last year. Clemson has five ACC wins to eclipse the total of last year (4). It is Clemson’s highest ACC win total since the 1998-99 season, Larry Shyatt’s first, when Clemson had five league wins.
