CLEMSON, SC – The Clemson men’s basketball program will hold an alumni Orange vs. White game Friday night at Littlejohn Coliseum. Tipoff is slated for 7 PM and admission is free. The game will be a 40-minute contest with two 20-minute halves and a running clock. The clock will be stopped inside the last minute of each half.
All-time greats Elden Campbell and Trevor Booker will be among the coaches for the event. All players and coaches in the Alumni game will be available for autographs at the conclusion of the event.
The alumni game will be held in conjunction with Clemson’s celebration of 100 years of basketball. Clemson will meet NC State Saturday at 2:30 PM at Littlejohn. A ceremony, including the introduction of Clemson’s top 25 players of all-time, will take place during halftime of that game. Tickets are still available.
Friday night’s Alumni game will feature four of the members of Clemson’s Centennial team. Terrell McIntyre and Grayson Marshall will lead the White team, while Greg Buckner and Vincent Hamilton will lead the Orange team.
McIntyre, who recently retired after a long professional career in Europe, is Clemson’s second ranked scorer of all-time with 1,839 points. He was the starting point guard on three NCAA Tournament teams. Marshall is the school’s all-time leader in assists with 857, a total that still ranks in the top 20 in NCAA history.
Buckner finished his career with 1,754 points, fourth in Clemson history, and went on to a 10-year NBA career. He is now a coach with the Dallas Mavericks of the NBA. Hamilton had 1,530 points between 1980-85 and is Clemson’s all-time leading rebounder among guards.
The White team also features Ricky Jones, a starter on Clemson’s 1990 ACC Championship team and Shawan Robinson, one of the top free throw shooters in Clemson history and a leader of the resurgence of Tiger basketball under Oliver Purnell.
Supporting Buckner and Hamilton on the Orange team will be Marc Campbell, who still holds the ACC record for consecutive made three-point shots (14), and Tom Wideman, Clemson’s 10th ranked rebounder of all-time (723). Wideman was the starting center on Clemson’s NCAA Sweet 16 team of 1997.
The eight players on the White team combined to score 6,141 points in their careers, while the eight players on the Orange team accounted for 5,232 career points.
Three more members of Clemson’s all-time team will serve as coaches in the Alumni game. Elden Campbell, Clemson’s all-time leading scorer, and Bobby Conrad, starting point guard on Clemson’s 1980 team that reached the NCAA Tournament Elite Eight, will serve as coaches for the Orange Team.
The White team will be coached by current Washington Wizards starting forward Trevor Booker, who led the Tigers to three NCAA Tournaments in recent years. Trip Jones, a forward on Clemson teams of the late 60s, will also serve as a coach for the White team.
