Our Favorite Clemson Players

Never a top-line basketball school, the Tigers have had some terrific players nonetheless.

Continuing our series on our favorite players from other ACC schools, as inspired by our colleague’s at SBN’s Syracuse site, here are our favorite Clemson players.

  • Terrell “Boogie” McIntyre. One of the ACC’s best-ever little men, he was a tremendous leader for the Tigers. He was from Raeford NC and took a special pleasure out of beating Duke, UNC, Wake Forest and NC State, none of whom seriously pursued him.
  • Greg Buckner. He was a tough, tough guard and when Clemson upset UNC in the ACC Tournament, we listened on the radio as he led Clemson to a stunning win. He was also the big brother to former Duke guard Andre Buckner, so he kind of is an honorary member of the Brotherhood.
  • Grayson Marshall. He wasn’t that interested in defense but he knew how to move the ball around and was a superb passer. It was fun to watch.
  • Dale Davis. He got a lot better later in his career, but at Clemson he was basically a power player and a really good one. No one wanted to play that guy. He was a load.
  • Trevor Booker. The guy wasn’t the most gifted player but not many players could ever match his heart. He brought it every night. At 6-8, he played nearly a decade in the NBA at power forward. Thirty years ago you could do that but today it’s next to impossible. Only his heart allowed it.
