Clemson’s PJ Hall Earns Associated Press All-ACC First Team Recognition

SportsClemson's PJ Hall Earns Associated Press All-ACC First Team Recognition

PJ Hall, a senior center for Clemson, was selected for the Associated Press All-ACC First Team. Just four players in the nation average more than 18.5 points, 7.0 rebounds, 1.5 assists, and 1.5 blocks per game, including PJ Hall.

With 18.8 points per game, the Dorman graduate placed third in the ACC in scoring and 12th in rebounds (6.8 per game). PJ Hall has 49 blocked shots this season and is tied for fourth in the ACC in blocks per game (1.58).

In a season where the Tigers are on the verge of making a comeback to the NCAA Tournament, the senior center has been their greatest player.

Recently, Hall was included as a finalist for the nation’s finest center, the Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Award, which is given by the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame. With 1,625 points, he is tenth on Clemson’s all-time scoring list. He is only the fourth Tiger in history to record 1,600 points, 600 rebounds, and 100 blocks in a career; the other three were Trevor Booker, Elden Campbell, and Dale Davis.

Against Georgia Tech on January 16, he recorded a career-high 31 points and 17 rebounds, one of his seven double-doubles this season.

The last game of the second day of the ACC Tournament in Washington, D.C., is scheduled for Wednesday night at 9:30 p.m., when Hall and the Tigers take on Boston College.
