2014-2015 Clemson Tigers Basketball Schedule
There's nothing quite like being in the middle of a great game loaded
with some of the most talented basketball players in the country, and that's exactly what tends to happen as the Tigers of
Clemson battle it out on the hardwood with all of the top teams and players in the ACC. Yup, this is big boy basketball at
its absolute finest and the Tigers are always in the middle of one intense matchup or another, which makes for a season's
worth of incredible moments that will have you on the edge of your seat in no time. The schedule is completely loaded with
great matchups against both conference powerhouses and talented out-of-conference foes, giving you plenty of opportunities
to head out and join in the rim-rocking excitement.
Clemson is coming off a good 2013-2014 season that had them finish
towards the top of the ACC standings but miss out on the NCAA Tournament and make it all the way to the NIT semifinals. The
always challenging ACC causes the Tigers to take on many of the best teams in college basketball, including traditional powerhouses
North Carolina, Duke, and recent additions like Louisville and Syracuse. You can be sure that the Tigers will enter the 2014-2015
season with a chip on their shoulder after being left out of the NCAA Tournament last season and will be looking to exact
revenge on some of the teams that defeated them in the conference last time around.
Littlejohn Coliseum is usually absolutely
filled to the brim with excited fans come game-time, and that's a tradition that isn't likely to end any time in the near
future. If you've never been out to the Coliseum for a big game, you have absolutely no idea what you've been missing, as
there is nothing quite like being in the stands when the game is on the line and the clock is dwindling late in the fourth
quarter. It's not only about the home games, however, as you'll see that this is a great fan base that shows up in a very
big way whenever the Tigers are on the road as well. Either way, anything can happen in 2014-2015, making it a great time
to be a Tigers backer.

Clemson Tigers Basketball History
Though the Tigers have developed into
a football powerhouse, they also know their way around the basketball court in the always competitive ACC. The Clemson Tigers
have been selected to the NCAA Tournament 11 times, most recently in 2011 which culminated a four-year stretch where they
made the Tournament at the end of each season. The furthest they have ever advanced in the tournament is the Elite Eight which
they accomplished in 1980 to give their fans their best season to date. These days, the Tigers have been continually bringing
in talented playmakers to their roster in an effort to keep up with the rest of the terrific conference, which always makes
for a steady string of incredible matchups that you know you'll want to be a part of.

A Tiger was named the ACC Player of the Year in 1987. Can you name the player?
The answer is Horace Grant,
the talented power forward who was one of the best players in the history of the program, with it all really coming together
during his 1987 season. After being named the ACC Player of the Year, Grant would end up being drafted with the 10th overall
pick in the 1987 draft by the Chicago Bulls, where he would be an important piece in four different titles alongside Michael
Jordan and Scottie Pippen.
