Tent Record Set for UNC Game

Student interest in the Clemson basketball team hit an all-time high Monday night when students camped out in 145 tents outside the ticket office at Clemson Memorial Stadium. Student ticket distribution is Tuesday morning at 7:30 AM.

As of 8:30 PM on Monday night, 145 tents had been erected, four more than the number of tents occupied by students who lined up for tickets for the Clemson vs. Wake Forest game in January of 1997. That game 10 years ago featured a number-two ranked Clemson team (AP) against a number-two ranked Wake Forest team (USA Today) that featured Tim Duncan.

Wednesday night's game at Littlejohn Coliseum will feature a Tar Heel team ranked fourth in the nation in both polls against a Clemson team that was ranked 16th in USA Today and 19th by Associated Press in polls released on Monday afternoon. Clemson has started the season 17-1, tied for its best 18-game start in history. Tipoff is 7:00 PM and the game will be shown nationally on ESPN.
