CLEMSON'S HAMMONDS BREAKS WRIST

Clemson All-ACC candidate Cliff Hammonds suffered a broken right (non-shooting) wrist during Clemson’s victory over Maryland on Sunday evening. X-rays revealed the injury on Monday. But, Hammonds said he plans to play Thursday night against Georgia Tech.

Hammonds wore a cast on his right wrist during practice Tuesday. He broke it when he fell while blocking a dunk in the Tigers' 73-70 victory over Maryland on Sunday night. The senior played the last 16 minutes with the injury.

"I am not going to stop playing the way I am playing, I am still going to give it my all," said Hammonds, who has never missed a game at Clemson (21-7, 9-5 ACC).

"There is some pain, but not as much as yesterday. Hopefully I will be able to do all I can to help this team beat Georgia Tech."

While Hammonds said he is ready to go, Clemson coach Oliver Purnell said he won't decide whether to play him against the Yellow Jackets (12-16, 5-9) until after practice Wednesday.
