Clemson senior guard Cliff Hammonds exemplifies what it means to be a student-athlete in the ACC. Hammonds is in the midst of trying to become just the sixth player in Tiger history to average in double figures in scoring all four years, including a current 10.4 ppg clip. He was one of only 15 juniors in school history to reach the 1,000-point mark. Hammonds is consistently recognized as one of the most hard-working players on and off the court. In the classroom, Hammonds holds over a 3.0 GPA in the architecture program.
