CLEMSON, SC – The Clemson women’s basketball team will play host to Western Carolina on Sunday, Nov. 11 at Littlejohn Coliseum. The Lady Tigers, who won their season opener on Friday night for a 1-0 record, and Catamounts (1-0) are scheduled to tip off at 2:00 pm.

Tickets for the game are $6 for adults and $4 for youth 18 and under, while students, faculty and staff are admitted free of charge with their Clemson ID.

Fans may also follow the action on the radio or the Internet. The game will be broadcast in the Clemson area on WCCP-FM (104.9) with Dan Scott calling the play-by-play and Barbara Kennedy-Dixon providing color commentary. The game is also being video streamed as part of ACC Select and can be accessed at www.ACCSelect.com, while livestats will be available via the Clemson Athletic Homepage at www.clemsontigers.com.

Sophomore Whitney Hood scored 13 points each in Friday night’s win, while Lele Hardy recorded a double-double with 10 points and 10 rebounds in the contest. The Lady Tigers will have a youth-dominated line-up for Sunday’s match-up with the Catamounts as just one upper classman is healthy. Seniors Adrianne Bradshaw and Tasha Taylor are both lost for the season after suffering torn ACLs in the preseason, while Clemson’s third senior D’Lesha Lloyd is sidelined with an injury. That leaves junior Moreemi Davis as the team’s most experienced player. Five sophomores and five freshman make up the remaining roster.

Scouting Western Carolina The Catamounts are coming off of a 24-10 season in 2006-07 that included a Southern Conference-best 15-3 league record. They return nine letterwinners and four starters from that squad and are now in their fourth year under the leadership of Head Coach Kellie Harper.

Western Carolina won its 2007-08 season opener on Friday night, downing Detroit by an 85-65 margin in Cullowhee, NC. Brooke Johnson led four double figure scorers with 14 points while Chevon Keith pulled down a team-best 12 rebounds.

Clemson vs. Western Carolina, The Series This afternoon’s game between Western Carolina and Clemson will be the seventh meeting in a series that dates back to 1985. The Lady Tigers have won all six previous match-ups, most recently defeating the Lady Catamounts by a 62-55 margin at Littlejohn Coliseum during the 2004-05 season.
