Scott To Make 101st Career Start

Clemson senior point guard Edward Scott became just the sixth player in Clemson history to start 100 games in a career when he started at Duke last Sunday. He will make his 101st when the Tigers take on South Carolina in Columbia on Wednesday in Columbia.

Ironically, the game will be played just a few miles from his hometown of Eastover, SC.

Scott, who came to Clemson after an outstanding career at Lower Richland High, joined Greg Buckner (122), Terrell McIntyre (112), Tree Rollins (110), Tom Wideman (109), and Vincent Hamilton (105) as the only Tigers in history with at least 100 starts.

Wednesday's game will be Scott's 104th career game overall, as he has come off the bench just three times in his career, all as a freshman in 1999-00. Entering the game on Wednesday, Scott has started and played in 61 consecutive games dating to January 24, 2001 when he missed a game against Georgia Tech due to the flu. He has started each of the last 90 games that he has played in. The last time he came off the bench was at NC State in 1999-00, a game Clemson won in Raleigh.

Scott is one of the ironmen of Clemson basketball and the ACC. He leads the conference in minutes per game with 38.3 this year, as he has played the complete game eight times this year, more than any other ACC player. For his career he has played the complete game 15 times and averages 35.2 minutes per game and a total of 3622 minutes.

He is now fifth in Clemson history in total minutes played trailing only Terrell McIntyre (4200), Grayson Marshall (4064), Greg Buckner (3954) and Vincent Hamilton (3906). Top Stories
