CLEMSON, SC – The Clemson Lady Tiger basketball schedule was announced Tuesday by Head Coach Jim Davis.
The schedule will have the Lady Tigers playing four games in the month of November. Clemson’s season opener will be Friday November 16 against East Carolina. Clemson will play host to Illinois on Monday, November 19. After a game at UMass, Clemson will entertain South Carolina on Wednesday, November 28.
Clemson will play eight games in the month of December. Clemson will play at Furman and at ACC-foe Maryland in early December. Clemson will play host to Miami, OH and Winthrop around exams on December 8 and 15 respectively. The Lady Tigers will play at Penn State on December 18, and will play Charleston Southern on December 20. Clemson will play at Hartford on December 28 in Uncasville, CT and the Lady Tigers will play their second ACC game of the year on December 30 with a home game against Florida State.
Clemson will begin 2002 with a game at Virginia on Monday, January 7, in Charlottesville, VA. The Lady Tigers will play its usual ACC opponents in the months of January and February with the addition of non-conference foe Virginia Tech on Sunday, February 3.
The ACC Tournament will be held on March 1-4 at the Greensboro Coliseum in Greensboro, NC.
“This is a very challenging schedule,” said Head Coach Jim Davis, who is entering his 15th season at Clemson. “We have some difficult games on our schedule. Our young team will have to grow up in a hurry. This schedule is one of the most difficult schedules we have had since I have been at Clemson. We have a solid perimeter game and we hope our guard play can carry us until our inside players can develop.”
Clemson finished the season with a 21-10 record overall and finished second in the ACC standings with a 10-6 mark. The Lady Tigers advanced to the second round of the NCAA Tournament and finished 22nd in both the Associated Press and USA Today polls. Davis who has a 299-138 record in 14 years at Clemson will welcome back three starters and eight letterwinners from last year’s team.
