Clemson basketball center PJ Hall was selected to the All-ACC Second Team by members of the media on Tuesday at the ACC Tipoff in Greensboro, North Carolina.
The 6-foot-10 Hall had a breakout season as a sophomore last year averaging 15.5 points per game, 5.7 rebounds and 1.6 assists per game while shooting 49.3% from the floor, including 30.8% from three and 78% from the free throw line.
Hall was honorable mention All-ACC and runner-up most improved player in the league in 2021-2022.
Hall underwent surgery in July and it’s still in question as to whether he’ll be ready when the Tigers kick off the season against The Citadel on November 7.
The Tigers were predicted to finish 11th in the league on the season, with the predicted order being: North Carolina, Duke, Virginia, Miami, Florida State, Notre Dame, Virginia Tech, Syracuse, Wake Forest and North Carolina State rounding out the top 10.
Eleven through fifteen are Clemson, Louisville, Boston College, Pittsburgh and Georgia Tech.
A healthy Hall is imperative if Brad Brownell hopes to overachieve in what could be an important season for his longevity at Clemson.
With a likely make-or-break season ahead for Brad Brownell having Hall available is imperative for the Tigers to have a successful season.
Late November matchups are on the books with Iowa and TCU/Cal in the Emerald Coast Classic on November 25th and 26th, followed by Penn State in the ACC/Big 10 Challenge on November 29 are big early season tilts that could go a long way to determining Brownell’s fate.
Clemson basketball has three ACC games scheduled for December in an important season for Brad Brownell’s tenure
In addition, the Tigers have three ACC games scheduled for the month of a December, a month traditionally used to rack up non-conference wins and get your legs underneath you for the tough ACC season ahead.
The Tigers host Wake Forest on December 2, travel to Atlanta to take on Georgia Tech on December 21st and host North Carolina State on either December 30 or 31st.
