ACC Hoops Scores and Standings

Here are the updated conference standings with links to all recent games involving ACC games. North Carolina tops the list of surprising teams, starting the season off 0-2; with losses to Davidson and Hampton. Duke, Maryland, and N.C. State have all gotten off to strong starts this season.

Larry Shyatt's Clemson Tigers have started the year off on a solid note, winning 3 of their first 4 games and advancing to the championship game of the Paradise Jam Basketball Tournament.

Wins over Morris Brown, LaSalle, and Wofford have shown some bright spots for Clemson basketball, including standout performances by team captain, PG Ed Scott (25 points against LaSalle), PF Ray Henderson (23 points against Wofford), and leading scorer SG Tony Stockman (23 points versus Morris Brown).

Unfortunately, Tony Stockman suffered a knee injury against LaSalle and will miss 2-to-4 weeks after undergoing successful arthroscopic surgery to repair damaged cartilage. Senior Jamar McKnight and freshman Chey Christie figure to see more playing time in Stockman's absence.

In suffering their only loss against the Miami Hurricanes, the Tigers showed that there is still some work left to be done at the free throw line, finishing 10-17 (58%) in a 2-point loss. McKnight led all scorers with 19 points in the defeat.

The good news is that offensively, the Tigers seem to have more options than the last two years. Through the first four games of the season, a different player has led Clemson in scoring each game. Despite the fact that this is a very young team, having significant scoring options at several positions should pay dividends when the schedule gets tougher in Janauary and February.

The Tigers next home game will be in the ACC/Big 10 Challenge this Wednesday, November 28th against Penn State.
