It's Senior Night at Clemson when Boston College visits Tigertown for a 7 p.m. tipoff.

"I have a lot of respect for those guys for staying at Clemson," said Brad Brownell, who was hired to coach the Tigers about a month after Booker and Jennings completed their freshman season under Oliver Purnell.

"I think they've both improved a great deal over the last three years, " Brownell said, "Grown up a lot. I think they both had good careers here."

Booker, who is averaging 13 points and 7.8 rebounds this season, has scored 1,114 points and grabbed 714 rebounds during his Clemson career.

"I think Devin has a chance to be an All-ACC performer. I think he's played consistently, at a very high level this year," Brownell said. "He does -- as I always term it -- the heavy lifting, a lot of things that you need done in basketball that some of the statistics don't show. He's been a fixture in our low post for a long time and certainly played very well, consistently."

Jennings, who is averaging 10.1 points and 6.6 rebounds this season, has scored 920 points and grabbed 589 rebounds during his Clemson career.

"I'm proud of Milt's development. He's a guy that can here with -- probably -- unreasonable expectations. People are probably disappointed in him, in some ways," Brownell said.

He added, "Just plays the game pretty smartly. He approaches things the right way, knows game plans, is on cue with what we're trying to do.

"So, obviously, have some good thoughts about both those guys. [I] hope that people will come out and support them and their last home game at Littlejohn."

Brownell called Jennings an "analytical guy" when it comes to basketball.

"Sometimes, he over thinks things," Brownell said. "He just needs to trust in his abilities and play.

"I think he cares a lot more than people realize. That is, obviously, one reason I've kept him on the team through some of the adversity. He cares about Clemson. He cares about the program and wants to do well."
