According to Brownell, we've had "some of the best facilities in the ACC and the country" and "a first-class experience" for the student athletes for 8 years.

Clemson hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the newest round of renovations in Littlejohn on October 14, 2016. These upgrades took roughly 16 months to complete, beginning shortly after the 2014-15 season in order to have them done as efficiently as possible. Their game against Georgia on Nov. 11 of 2016 served as their “grand reopening” of the stadium, allowing fans to experience the renovations first-hand.

This $63.5 million project consisted of a number of upgrades, along with the addition of some features to help accommodate players and provide them with the best equipment and atmosphere possible.

The renovated studio included the new Swann Pavilion, which includes a 13,000-square-foot (1,200 m2) practice gym, team suites, a film room, weight room and lounges. The renovation also upgraded the stadium entrance, exterior, and added two new LED boards. To fit in the new facilities, the basketball floor was rotated 90 degrees, and the arena capacity was reduced to 9,000 seats.

Included in the recent renovations, both the Men’s and Women’s team got their own Players’ Lounge, providing them with the equipment necessary to provide players with the opportunity to relax with their teammates and pass time in between practices and work outs. Located near each Locker Room, the Players’ Lounge helps accentuate leisure in their surroundings, while also keeping them in a proactive environment.

Training Room
To the right of the Players’ Lounge is the Athletic Training Room. This space was specifically created to centralize the needs of players, typically consisting of recovery or game-prep. The Athletic training room was also a part of the recent renovation, allowing the program to be equipped and prepared when in season and out of it.

Amenities Include:

Plunge Pools
Six lifted Treatment Tables
Recovery & Medical Equipment
Weight Room
The Weight Room has undergone a superior makeover, now being connected to the players’ lounge and the practice gym, along with getting upgrades to all their equipment to better suit the players’ needs. Monitored by trainers for both teams, this space is helping athletes better themselves on a daily basis.

Connected to the Weight Room is the teams’ Practice Gym, consisting of a full-sized court with six surrounding baskets and a time clock to help the coaches and players with drills and other exercises in preparation for the season. Players have 24 hour access to the facility and are welcome to use the equipment and the gym candidly.

Amenities Include:

Nutrition Bar with Snacks, Beverages, and Post-Workout Shakes
Certified Nutritioist on Staff
Custom Tiger Weight Racks and Benches w/ LED Lighting
Custom Workout Machinery
Cardio Equipment
Three Flat Screen TV’s
Speakers

Locker Room
Located beside the training room, which was a part of the recent renovation, is the Mens’ Locker Room. The Womens’ team’s Locker Room is located on the other side of the Practice Gym. The basketball teams spends an immense amount of time in this area, before and after games, practice, and lifts, so it was crucial to provide them with a comfortable space and amenities to make their atmosphere as welcoming and productive as possible.

Amenities Include:

Individual Locker Spaces with Seating
Individual Lighting
Storage Drawers
Screens for Jersey Number and Player Display


“What a great day for Clemson Basketball,” said Head Men’s Basketball Coach Brad Brownell. “In 2013, when we first took steps to renovate Littlejohn Coliseum, Joe and Bobbi Swann aided in the advancement of both programs with the construction of the Swann Pavilion. This new project, spearheaded by Jim and Candace Brown, will continue to give us some of the best facilities in the ACC and the country, while enabling us to consistently provide our student-athletes with a first-class experience. I want to thank the Browns for their considerable generosity and strong support of our program.”
