  • For the second straight game the Tigers pace was at 1.64 possessions per minute, which is over the season average and they won both. Coincidence?
  • Free throw shooting has to be a concern.  The team that led the ACC last year is hitting at a 65.1% clip through 20 games.
  • 3 point shooting was huge against N.C. State, but the Tigers are still below 30% and average 0.89 points per 3 point attempt.

  • Clemson’s pace against Wake (1.64 possessions per minute) was their highest of the ACC games to date and highest overall since the Robert Morris game.
  • Clemson’s pace has increased in each of the last 3 games.
  • Donte Grantham has taken 100 3 pointers and made 27.  55.6% of Grantham’s shots are beyond the arc.
  • Two surprising names continue to lead Tigers on the offensive boards: Sidy Djitte and Josh Smith.  Djitte is corralling more than a quarter (25.5%) of the available offensive rebounds while Smith is at 16.2%.
  • A direct result of all those offensive rebounds is that Djitte and Smith lead the Tigers in free throw rate (free throw attempts/field goal attempts). Djitte is at 1.083 and Smith is .969.
  • Another category that Djitte “leads” in is fouls per minute played.  Djitte commits a personal foul for every 4.3 minutes on the court.  Landry Nnoko commits a foul every 7.7 minutes on the floor.Basketball 2014-15 Sum 19Basketball 2014-15 dUsage 19Basketball 2014-15 Game by Game 19Basketball 2014-15 Pace 19Basketball 2014-15 Comps 19

  • Sidy Djitte is averaging a foul every 4.4 minutes of playing time and an offensive rebound every 6.4 minutes of play.
  • Landry Nnoko is averaging a foul every 7.8 minutes of playing time.
  • Not splitting the atom, but Jaron Blossomgame has been far and away the Tigers most effective and efficient offensive player. Blossomgame has been used on 32.8% of the Tigers possessions, but has accounted for 44.6% of their offense during his time on the court.
  • After the pace had slowed over the last 5 games, it picked up a bit against Syracuse coming in at 1.45 possessions per minute.Basketball Sum 2014-15 17Basketball UsageD 2014-15 17Basketball Game by Game 2014-15 17Basketball Pace 2014-15 17
