PJ Hall and Ian Schieffelin earn end-of-season ACC honors

On Monday afternoon, the ACC recognized Clemson center PJ Hall and forward Ian Schieffelin with ACC honors for both players, continuing their great seasons this year. 

For Hall, the senior earned himself a spot on the All-ACC First Team. Coming off of a season scoring 18.8 points and grabbing 6.8 rebounds per game, he is the 14th Tiger in program history to be on the first-team all-conference. He is the fourth under head coach Brad Brownell. 

It is also the first time that a Clemson player has made it onto the first team in back-to-back seasons. Just a season ago, former Tiger Hunter Tyson made the All-ACC First Team. Hall made the third team last season before jumping into the top team this year. 

For Schieffelin, the junior was recognized as the ACC’s Most Improved Player. Averaging 9.7 points, 9.6 rebounds and two assists per game, the forward has also recorded nine double-doubles on the year. 

It is only the second time that a Tiger has won the Most Improved Player Award, which began in 2014. Former standout Jaron Blossomgame was the other winner, winning it eight years ago in 2016. 

Likewise, Schieffelin and guard Joseph Girard III were honored in the All-ACC Honorable Mention list. In his first season since transferring from Syracuse, Girard has averaged 15.7 points per game, shooting an impressive 42.5% from three-point range. 

The three Clemson standouts will play a pivotal role in the postseason, where they will look to make a deep run in the ACC and NCAA Tournament. Their quest starts today, as the team will face Boston College tonight at 9:30 p.m. in the second round of the ACC Tournament.
