*Today was Clemson's first win on March 11. Clemson was 0-7 on this date in history prior to today with all seven of the previous losses coming in the ACC Tournament. Until today, March 11 was the only date between the beginning of the season (November 10) and March 19 that Clemson had never recorded a victory.
*Brad Brownell established the Clemson record for wins in a season by a first-year
Clemson coach. This was his 21st victory of the season, breaking the record of 20
set by Larry Shyatt in 1998-99.
*Brownell became the first Clemson coach to win his first ACC Tournament game since
March 4, 1976 when Bill Foster won his first ACC Tournament game against Wake
Forest. That game was played in Landover, MD.
*Brownell is now 16-5 in conference tournaments in his career and has never lost a
first-round game. He is 9-0 in first-round games in his career.
*Clemson's 23 point victory was its second largest victory margin in history in an
ACC Tournament game. The only victory that was by a larger margin is a 34-point win
(82-48) against Boston College in the 2008 ACC Tournament in Charlotte.
*Clemson is now 4-0 in history against Boston College in neutral site games.
*Clemson's defense held Boston College to 47 points, the Eagles second fewest points
in a game this year. The only time the Eagles scored less was in a 48-46 loss at
North Carolina on Feb. 19. The Eagles shot just 34 percent from the field against
Clemson, second lowest field goal percentage of the year by the Eagles. The only
game that is lower is a .269 by the Eagles against North Carolina.
*Clemson's victory today was its first in the ACC Tournament since a semifinal win
over Duke at Charlotte in 2008. Clemson had lost three consecutive ACC Tournament
games prior to today.
*Clemson made 47 percent of its three-point shots compared to 25 percent for Boston
College, a 22-percent differential. Clemson won the game by 23 points.
*Clemson is now 15-1 this year when holding the opposition to 60 points or less.
*Clemson improved its scoring defense for the season to 59.9 by holding Boston
College to 47 points. Clemson is on pace to become the first ACC team to allow less
than 60 points per game since the 1996-97 NC State team allowed just 54.66 points
*Clemson won the rebound margin 39-26. Clemson's rebounding effort included 16
rebounds from backcourt players Demontez Stitt, Andre Young and Zavier Anderson.
*Clemson won the bench scoring 20-5 and its bench made 5-7 three-point shots.
*Senior guard Zavier Anderson had a career high seven points today, including a pair
of three-point goals. He had made just one three-point goal in 52 previous games
prior to today. The former walk-on (put on scholarship just two months ago) also
had a career high five rebounds, a blocked shot and a steal. It was the eighth
blocked shot of the year for Anderson, who is just 5-9.
*Senior guard Demontez Stitt had 20 points and eight rebounds to go with four
assists in today's game. The rebound total tied his career high. It was his
high scoring game since he had 20 in a loss at Maryland on Jan. 22.
*It was the ninth straight game Stitt has scored at least 14 points.
*Stitt had eight points in the first half and 12 in the second. It marked the 15th
time in the last 17 games that he has scored more points in the second half than the
first half. The two he did not do it, he scored the same amount in each half.
NOTES: Tigers survive and advance
