CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) -- Clemson top scorer Trevor Booker will return for his senior season.
Tigers coach Oliver Purnell made the announcement Friday. The 6-foot-7 Booker became the first player since Wake Forest's Tim Duncan 12 years ago to lead the Atlantic Coast Conference in field goal percentage and rebounding.
Booker averaged 15.3 points, 9.7 rebounds and two blocked shots a game this season. He was a second-team all-Atlantic Coast Conference selection this fall.
Booker said in a statement that after consulting with his family, he thought there were several areas in which he could improve before moving on to a professional basketball career.
