Clemson, SC – Tony Stockman and Chris Hobbs were recognized by College Basketball News’ All-Freshman Team. Stockman was named to the sixth team, while Hobbs was chosen to the eighth team. Duke’s Chris Duhon – a fourth team selection – was the only other player honored from the ACC.
“Stockman to Hobbs” became an increasingly frequent tandem throughout the 2000-01 Clemson season. Besides Clemson, no team had two representatives on the ACC All-Rookie team. The pair accounted for 26 percent of Clemson’s offensive.
Stockman was Clemson’s second leading scorer, finishing behind Will Soloman with a 12 points per game average. The freshman was never scared to let it go from deep, connecting on 75 of 196 three-point attempts. He broke the freshman record for three pointers when he shot 4-9 from behind the arc in the victory over top-ranked North Carolina. Stockman was also the Tiger’s best bet from the charity stripe, hitting 84 percent of his free throws.
Hobbs led all ACC freshmen in double-doubles. He and Adam Allenspach shared the team lead with six. On 10 occassions Hobbs led the Tigers in rebounding. His 28-point, 9-rebound explosion against Virginia may have been the finest all-around game played by a Tiger last season. At one point in that game he connected on seven consecutive field goals. That point total is the highest by a Clemson freshman front court player since 1982-1983 when Anthony Jenkins had 30 against Duke. He led the Tigers in field goal percentage and was first in rebounding.
