CLEMSON, S.C. – Jim Davis, a 2008 inductee into the Clemson Athletic Hall of Fame as a head coach, leads his Tennessee Tech (1-5) squad into Littlejohn to take on Audra Smith’s Clemson (3-5) club on Saturday night at 6 p.m. The game has been designated as Alumni night, with several former players planning to be in attendance.
Clemson is looking to snap its four-game skid, which includes three losses to teams who played in last season’s NCAA Tournament. So far, four of Clemson’s five losses meet that criterion.
The Tigers are 5-4 against Tennessee Tech all-time, but the programs have not met since 2006, a Clemson victory.
Davis coached the Clemson program for 18 seasons from 1987-2005, earning final rankings in 11 seasons and making an appearance in 14 NCAA Tournaments. Davis is still Clemson’s all-time winningest basketball coach, men or women, with a 355-197 record with the Tigers.
