I was a frosh in attendance at the 1980 game ... (long)

I've been to three final fours and multiple NCAA and ACC tournaments and that Clemson-Duke game was the most fun I've ever had at a ballgame. Also the loudest game. The mostly pre-TV refereeing was unreal. We were 7-0 at home that year in ACC and 0-7 on the road. We beat #6 Carolina by 17 at home that year and lost by 3 to them in Chapel Hill. One of our best teams ever with Billy Williams, Moose and Nance.

As for the win against #1 Duke, both coaches were named Bill Foster and Littlejohn was packed with largest crowd ever as aisles were used for seating all the way to upper deck. Duke had three All-Americans Gminski, Spanarkel and Banks. Funny thing I read on T-Net recently that Coach K had create Duke hoops. Far from true. Anyway, back in the day, there was unbelievable spirit, cheering abandon and a sense anything could happen. Cannot imagine a better time to be at Clemson. Then the next year we win a natl championship in football and lose only two games over the next three years. Yes, even the best Clemson hoops memories are shaded with football. Go Tigers!
