Oct. 24, 2011

CLEMSON, SC – The Clemson women’s basketball team will hold their annual Orange and White intra-squad scrimmage on Tuesday at 7:00 pm in Littlejohn Coliseum. The event is free to the public and is fans’ first chance to see the 2011-12 team, including the 30th-ranked freshman class in the nation.

The Lady Tigers have a new look for this year, as Itoro Coleman starts her second season. The Tigers return just five scholarship players from last season, and added five signees for the season, a class which ranked 30th nationally and fifth in the ACC according to ESPN Hoopgurlz.

The scrimmage will follow the Orange Brigade Tip-Off Dinner in Littlejohn Coliseum. Fans interested in joining the Orange Brigade for exclusive updates on the team and special meet and greets throughout the year are welcome to contact Shelly Geer at SGEER@clemson.edu.

Senior post players Shaniqua Pauldo and Lindsey Mason will lead Clemson this season. Pauldo is the leading returning scorer at 8.7 points per game, and Mason is the leading returning rebounder and shot-blocker at 5.2 boards and 1.5 blocks per game, respectively.

Sophomore guard Chancie Dunn appeared in 28 games, earning four stats a season ago, while Quinyotta Pettaway played in 24 games in the post.

Natiece Ford headlines the freshman class, as she was ranked 47th in the nation according to ESPN Hoopgurlz. Three-star guards Chelsea Lindsay, Nikki Dixon and Kelly Gramlich, as well as three-star post Deja Hawkins will all see plenty of action in the scrimmage.
