Yesterday's injury was an ACL tear. Terrible for the senior, and another horrendous piece of luck for Brownell, who has been plagued with injuries his entire tenure at Clemson. The Tigers showed their ability to beat a good Notre Dame team without Grantham on the floor, but this is a huge loss--both from a production and leadership standpoint--in the middle of the Tigers' best season in 10 years. Donte was a member of the 1,000 point club and was averaging 14 points and 7 rebounds per game. Super nice kid. Please keep him in your prayers!

CLEMSON, S.C. –– Following an MRI, senior forward Donte Grantham suffered a torn ACL in the second half of Clemson men’s basketball’s victory over Notre Dame on Saturday, Jan. 20. Grantham is out for the remainder of the season.

Grantham ranked second on the team in points (14.2 ppg) and rebounds (6.9 rpg), while tallying the third-most assists, second-most blocks and fourth-most steals. He also was shooting an ultra-impressive 56.0 percent from the floor and 42.0 percent from 3-point range.


“I’m disappointed that Donte’s career at Clemson had to end this way. He was putting together a terrific season statistically, but he really helps this team in so many ways. He has been a pleasure to coach and it has been fun to watch him mature and grow into the leader of our program. He is still a very valuable member of this team, whose leadership will continue to power this team moving forward. I’m confident he will attack this setback the right way and come back stronger than ever from this injury. He certainly has an exceptionally bright future in basketball.”
