Clemson basketball: Tigers finish off 3 game sweep in France

Clemson basketball finished off it’s 3 game exhibition in France the same way the other two went: Scoring over 90 points in a victory, this time by a score of 92-74 in a victory over Club de Golfe.

Hunter Tyson scored 22 points, grabbed seven rebounds, dished out four assists and grabbed three steals to lead Clemson.

Redshirt freshman Josh Beadle, who’s scheduled to play a huge role this season, totaled 16 points, three rebounds and three assists.

Alex Hemenway continued his torrid shooting from distance, hitting four of seven threes and finishing 12-for-22 from three in the three games on the trip.

Without the injured P.J. Hall, Ian Schieffelin  and Ben Middlebrooks saw significant playing time and scored 9 points each, while RJ Godfrey hit for eight and eight rebounds.

Chauncey Wiggins  and Chase Hunter each scored seven points.

The first two gams saw the Tigers dominate by almost identical scores, 92-60 over the Paris All-Stars and 93-50 over Paris.

Though it’s unfortunate Hall was injured and didn’t make the trip, it was important playing time for Schieffelin and Middlebrooks who both showed glimpses in 2021-22, but obviously needed seasoning and experience on the court to develop into reliable front court players.

The overseas trip also was a boon for the freshmen on the team, especially Beadle, who sat out last season, but is expected to play a significant role with the departures of Nick Honor and Al-Amir Dawes.

After playing 18 minutes in the first game, Beadle logged 27 in game two and 37 in game three to finish the trop with 82 minutes of playing time after sitting out last season.

Hunter Tyson led the Tigers totaling 71 minutes, 45 points and 29 rebounds across the three games, averaging 23.7, 15 and 9.7 respectively, including16 rebounds in game one and 22 points in game three.

Hall’s recovery could be key to Brownell’s future with the program, as the Tigers have several significant games prior to the ACC schedule, which could go a long way to determining Brownell’s fate.
