The Tigers start off by going to Cameron Indoor Stadium to face off with the Duke Blue Devils on January 5th. The Tigers will follow that up with a Wednesday night trip to Syracuse, where the Tigers lost 55-52 to close out last regular season. The rough stretch continues as the Tigers will host defending ACC champ Virginia in Littlejohn.
Clemson will face off with UNC at Clemson in early March. Unfortunately the Tigers will not get a chance to travel to Chapel Hill, so Tiger fans will have to wait another year to attempt to end the infamous streak. Clemson will play Georgia Tech, Florida State, Pitt, and Syracuse twice over the season.
Clemson hoops gets things going on November 1st with an exhibition against Barton College, a Division II program from Wilson, NC. The Tigers then begin the regular season on November 6th with a home game against instate foe the Citadel.
