3/27/2009 - Clemson Tigers

CLEMSON, S.C. -- Clemson star 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 said in a statement that after consulting with his family, he decided there were several areas in which he could improve before moving on to a professional basketball career.
