Anybody remember the old North-South Tournament?

When Clemson knocked off Duke and UNC? Has Clemson beat Duke and UNC back-to-back since then until now?

North-South Double Header had the Tarholes and Wolfkitties - never Dookies.

1995-96. Last time back-to-back, 1989-90.


Well, if history repeats from 89-90, we're in for

a heck of a ride. Won the regular season that year


I would be okay with that, minus the NCAA probation and vacating of wins.

And minus the heartbreaking loss in the NCAA Tournament.

Yep 89-90 - that was the ACC regular season title team I believe.

I was there!!

Back in February 1967, in 8 days, we beat WF, Duke, NCS & UNC back to back. Duke was ranked #14 and UNC #3, and NC State and UNC games were played in Charlotte, in the old North-South Doubleheader.

I was at those two games, and the 92-88 win over #4 UNC is still possibly the best Clemson game I have ever seen. Randy Mahaffey scored something like 35 points in the game.

This was part of a 7-0 stretch in Feb 67, that also included wins over Usuc, Maryland and a 2nd win against NC State! Amazingly, we only went 17-8 that year(9-5 ACC), and lost in double OT to Wake, in the first round of the ACC tournament!

I just missed seeing games in Fike, as 68-69 was my 1st year

Every other year it was considered your home game.
