Clemson releases 2015-16 Men's Basketball Schedule
CLEMSON, S.C. — The full men’s basketball schedule for 2015-16 was announced Wednesday by the Atlantic Coast Conference. Clemson will play 17 regular-season games in Bon Secours Wellness Arena in Greenville, S.C., while its home facility of Littlejohn Coliseum undergoes a $63.5 million renovation.
Season tickets are on sale and can be ordered by calling 1-800-CLEMSON or visiting ClemsonTigers.com. The priority deadline for IPTAY members was extended to Tuesday, September 8. Missing game times and television designations are currently in the selection process, and will be announced at a later date.
“I’m looking forward to bringing our team to Greenville this season,” said head coach Brad Brownell. “I’ve had numerous people over the last six months tell me how excited they are about Clemson basketball playing in ‘The Well.’
“The ACC is as challenging as it has ever been and, as expected, we have a terrific league schedule this season.”
Included in Clemson’s home schedule are nine games against ACC competition, beginning January 2 versus Florida State. In addition, the Tigers host the defending NCAA Champion in Duke (January 13), defending ACC Champion in Virginia (March 1) and defending ACC Tournament Champion in Notre Dame (February 8) at “The Well” this winter.
Clemson also welcomes Louisville (January 10), Miami (January 16) and Pittsburgh (January 27) in the opening month of conference play. It will be the first time the Tigers have faced Louisville outside of Kentucky since the 1973-74 meeting.
Clemson’s challenging road slate begins with the ACC Tip-Off at North Carolina on Dec. 30, a 7 p.m. contest televised nationally by ESPN2. The Tigers follow by playing at Syracuse on January 5. Another highlight to the road schedule will be February 20 at NC State, a 2015 Sweet 16 team. The Tigers won in Raleigh last season.
