Clemson will play at North Carolina A&T and Furman prior to hosting Illinois for the Big Ten – ACC Challenge.

Notable road trips for the Tigers include a trip to Oakland (Mich.) on Dec. 9 before finals, and then to Big East member Providence on Dec. 21.

Clemson opens the ACC season with Virginia Tech on Jan. 2. The Tigers will play Virginia Tech, Florida State, Virginia, Wake Forest, Georgia Tech twice each, and Duke, North Carolina, Miami, Boston College and Maryland once.

In total, there are 12 games against teams who made postseason play last season.

The ACC Tournament will be held in Greensboro, NC from Mar. 1-4, 2012.

Itoro Coleman will be at the helm for her second season, after the Tigers went 10-20 a season ago in her inaugural campaign.
