Don’t Forget To E-Mail Questions For Tiger Bytes

Nov. 8, 2000

Don’t forget to e-mail questions for Tiger Bytes, Clemson’s exclusive live audio show that is aired on Thursdays at noon on Questions can be submitted by clicking on the graphic above.

Joining football coach Tommy Bowden this week will be men’s basketball players Adam Allenspach, Pasha Bains and Will Solomon.

The Tiger basketball team has been busy the last few weeks preparing for the 2000-2001 season. Thursday night, Clemson will host Club Ventspils from Latvia at 7:30 in its final exhibition game before the regular season opener against Hartford on November 17 at 7:30. Both games will be played in Littlejohn Coliseum.

Allenspach is the lone senior of the Tiger squad this year. The 7-1, center led the Tigers in rebounding last season and finished eighth in the ACC with a 7.1 rebounds per game average. He also had a team-high six “double-doubles.”

Bains, a native of Canada, looks to contribute at full strength this season. Bains, a 6-3 guard, played a limited role for the Tigers last season after having to sit out a year due to the NCAA’s transfer rule. In Clemson’s first exhibition game this season, Bains poured in 29 points and was 7-of-10 on three point attempts, including a string of six made three-pointers in a row.

Solomon was the ACC’s leading scorer last season. The 6-1, guard averaged 20.9 points per game in becoming only the second sophomore since 1979 and fifth overall to lead the conference in scoring. He was the only player in the ACC to score in double-figures in every game of 1999-2000. In accomplishing this, Solomon became the first Clemson player since 1990 to earn first-team All-ACC honors.
