CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) -- The Clemson women's basketball team has struggled on the court the past few seasons and continues to struggle in the class.

The team posted a 2.10 grade-point average, last among the school's 15 teams in the academic performance report for the fall semester released Thursday. The performance is actually up from last year when its 2.04 GPA ranked last in the athletic department.

Six teams posted GPAs of 3.00 or better. There were 130 athletes who finished the semester with a 3.50 GPA to make the Dean's List, breaking the department's record of 123 in the spring of 2006.

The baseball team had its highest semester average ever with a 3.07. The football team finished with a 2.41 GPA, its third best fall performance. Men's basketball finished with a 2.52, its second highest marks.
