The Tigers weren't the most talented team out there, but they were a scrappy team. They did have some bad losses to College of Charleston, Coastal Carolina, UTEP, and Hawaii, but Brad Brownell had the team competitive throughout the season. The Tigers finished the season 16-15, but only lost by double digits three times.
Rebounding was a bit of an issue for the Tigers this season. Devin Booker led the team averaging seven rebounds per game, and Milton Jennings and Tanner Smith averaged above five, but after that, nobody was higher that 2.7 rebounds per game. You can also look at three point shooting as well as a bit of an issue for the Tigers. The team shot 32% from three point range this season, and Tanner Smith was their best shooter at 35% from threes.
Who stood out: Tanner Smith was Clemson's most consistent all around player. He was second on the team in scoring, rebounding, first in assists, tied for the lead in steals, third in field goal shooting, and led the team in three point shooting.
Looking ahead: Four players are gone from the team: Smith, Catalin Baciu, Andre Young, and Bryan Narcisse, along with his goggles. Brownell has five freshmen coming aboard next season.
Early prediction: Milton Jennings and Devin Booker will be the only seniors on the roster next year. Everyone else will be freshmen and sophomores. This will be a very young team next year that will likely need some time to develop. They will likely be down towards the bottom of the ACC next year.
