In Clemson’s game against Boston College, the Tigers held BC scoreless from beyond the three-point line.

Amari is the ACC leader in true shooting percentage (.643) and effective field goal percentage (.595), and she ranks sixth in the conference in PER (30.1).

Against Georgia Tech, Robinson notched a double-double at Georgia Tech (19 points, 10 rebounds) and followed that up by scoring a career-high 37 points on 14-19 shooting in just 27 minutes. In Clemson’s win against Wake Forest, Robinson scored 21 points including going 10-12 from the charity stripe.

Robinson currently ranks fourth in Tiger history with 1,742 career points. She needs 54 more to move into third place. Her 890 career rebounds are good enough for fourth-most in Tigers history, and she needs 43 rebounds to surpass Lele Hardy for third-most.

Dayshanette Harris, a fifth-year student-athlete who played four years at Pitt, is having a career year. Harris is scoring over 12 points per game and is shooting at the best clip of her career. She’s shooting career highs of 46% from the floor and 35% from three-point land. Harris is ranked fourth in the nation in assist percentage (42.2).

With seven assists in Clemson’s game against Louisville, Harris, a four-year starter at Pitt, set a new career high for most assists in a season. Harris has scored a season-high 25 points in Clemson’s games against No. 13 Louisville and No. 14 Virginia Tech, all while shooting 50% from the floor and averaging 3.5 rebounds, 3.5 steals, and 7.5 assists over that same stretch.
