Doors open at 7:30, and the first 500 fans will receive a free Rock the `John t-shirt. The event is free of charge and will be emceed by men's basketball in-game host JDew.
Rock The `John will be filled promotions, prizes, skills competitions, interactive games, and an opportunity to get to know the student-athlete personalities. Rock the `John will also have exciting performances from the cheerleaders, Rally Cats, Tiger Pep Band, and notable entertainment act Red Panda.
The event will also include entertaining and exciting player and coach introductions and a brief men's scrimmage. An autograph session for both teams will follow the event on the concourse level of Littlejohn Coliseum.
The event will precede what should be an exciting weekend for Tiger athletics, as the football team also plays host to North Carolina on Saturday, Oct. 22.
"Rock The `John will be a great event to have a fun night with family and friends, and it also provides the opportunity for fans to meet this year's basketball teams," said Brad Lewis, Clemson's marketing assistant. "I hope everyone takes advantage of such a great Clemson weekend."
The men's team will also be celebrating its 100th year of basketball, and throughout the night the 25 members of the school's all-time team will be uniquely unveiled. The all-time team was determined by a combined vote of fans on ClemsonTigers.com and a special panel appointed by the athletic department.
Fans attending Rock the `John will receive men's and women's schedule key tags, schedule cards, posters, magnets, and t-shirts at various times throughout the event.
