The Tigers posted a team GPA of 2.55 for the fall semester of 2006, the highest figure on record for a fall semester. Five Tigers were named to the academic honor roll for the fall semester, including starters Cliff Hammonds and Sam Perry.
Hammonds is studying architecture and is attempting to become the
first scholarship basketball player on record to earn a degree in
that academic discipline. He was named to the All-ACC Academic team
in 2005 and has a career GPA over 3.0.
Other Tigers who were named to the academic honor roll for
the fall were Matt Morris, Chris Poole and A.J. Tyler.
"We are pleased that we are continuing to make progress and
showing consistency in this area of our program," said Clemson Head
Coach Oliver Purnell.
The team had a 2.66 GPA for the spring semester of 2006, the
highest for any semester by the basketball program since the spring
of 1983. It marked the third consecutive semester that the team GPA
was at least 2.45, a first for the program on record.
