Clemson loses Donte Grantham to torn ACL
No. 20 Clemson announced on Sunday morning that Grantham, the team’s second-leading scorer and rebounder, would miss the rest of the season after tearing his ACL in a win over Notre Dame on Saturday.
“I’m disappointed that Donte’s career at Clemson had to end this way,” head coach Brad Brownell said. “He was putting together a terrific season statistically, but he really helps this team is so many ways. He’s been a pleasure to coach and it has been fun to watch him mature and grow into the leader of our program.”
Grantham was averaging 14.2 points and 7.1 boards this year. He hurt his knee in the Tigers last game–a 67-58 victory over Notre Dame.
This injury is a huge blow to a Tigers program that looked destined for the NCAA Tournament in March. Now, it’s not set in stone, but this Clemson team is still really good.
