Clemson's highest seed since 1990 when Clemson
was the number-one seed for he only time in its history.
That 1990 Tournament was played in Charlotte.

in Charlotte. One of the wins was an upset of #2 seed
Florida State in 1993.

years. The last time was 1998 when Clemson lost in the

games all year. It is the first Clemson team in its 55 year
ACC history that has gone through the league schedule
without suffering back to back losses.
• Cliff Hammonds made first-team Academic All-ACC
and third-team All-ACC on the court this year. He is

free throws with 3.8 seconds left to beat Virginia Tech.
