The previous high was a 19-point margin in points off turnovers in the win over Georgia (29-10). Clemson has now won the points off turnover stat in 15 straight games and has lost that stat just once in 20 games this year.
*Clemson defeated a Boston College team that was 5-0 in the ACC this
year and had won 16 of its last 18 ACC games heading into today.
*Clemson's bench was out-scored by 14 points (9-23) in the loss to
North Carolina on Wednesday evening, but Clemson's bench had a
14-point advantage (15-1) in today's win over Boston College.
*Clemson shot 50.8 percent from the field today, just the second team
this year to shoot over 50 percent from the field against the Eagles.
Northeastern (32-61 for .524) is the only other opponent to exceed 50
percent against the Eagles defense this year.
*Clemson had a +13 turnover margin today, as the Tigers forced 21 and
committed just eight. It marked the third time in the last five ACC
games that Clemson has committed exactly eight turnovers on offense.
*Clemson is now 18-2, just the second time in school history the
Tigers have been 18-2 to open the season. The 1986-87 team is the
only other Clemson team to win 18 of its first 20 games.
*Today was Clemson's fourth win in the month of January (4-2). This
is the first time Clemson has won four games in January since 1997
when the Tigers were 6-2 that month under Rick Barnes.
*Clemson has a 4-2 record in the ACC, its best start since the Tigers
were 5-1 for the first six ACC games in 1996-97.
*Cliff Hammonds made a career high tying five three-point goals in
today's game, including four in the first half. It marked the fourth
time that Hammonds had made five three-point goals in a game, the
first time since a win over East Tennessee State last year. It was
the best three-point goal percentage of his career (.833 on 5-6).
*Hammonds is now 8-12 in his career from three-point range against
Boston College. With his five three-point goals today, Hammonds now
has 146 for his career, tied for sixth in Clemson history with
Andrius Jurkunas (1995-99).
*Hammonds improved on his ACC best assist/turnover ratio in today's
game with a 5/1 ratio. He now has a 74 assists and 27 turnovers this
year, a league best 2.74/1 figure.
*Point guard Vernon Hamilton had two steals today and is now tied for
11th in ACC history in that category with Duke's Christian Laettner.
Laettner and Hamilton both have 243 career steals, but Hamilton has
played in 37 less games.
*Boston College shot just 7-20 from the field in the second half
against the Tigers. It was the best field goal percentage defense
in a half for the Tigers since the first half of the Georgia State
game on December 31 when the Panthers made just .308 of its field
goal attempts in the first half.
*Sam Perry scored nine points, all in the second half of today's
game. That included a three-point goal, he fourth of his career. He
is now 4-10 on three-point shots this year with three made over the
last four games.
