Rock the 'John - Tiger Tip-Off 2008 is Clemson's version of Midnight Madness, which is commonly known across the country as the first night of practice for the upcoming basketball seasons.
The event will be fun and entertaining for Clemson basketball fans of
all ages. It will feature performances from the Clemson University
cheerleaders, Rally Cats, and Tiger Band, as well as a high flying
dunking act from Sky Hawk, a mascot of the Atlanta Hawks. There will
also be great promotions where fans will have the chance to win
exciting prizes including a Wii, X-Box, Clemson athletic trip of your
choice, tickets to the men's and women's ACC basketball tournaments,
gift certificates to the Anderson Mall, and other great gift cards to
various local merchants. Also, a student will have the chance to
ride away from the event in a brand new car!
The 2008-09 men's and women's basketball teams will be introduced to
the crowd, and fans will hear from head coaches Oliver Purnell and
Cristy McKinney. Once the teams are on the court they will compete
in a three-point shootout, two-ball competition, a freshman
challenge, and the men will participate in a dunking showcase. There
will be free pizza for the first 500 Clemson students and free
Coca-Cola products for everyone. After the events on the court are
complete, fans will have the chance to get autographs from their
favorite Tiger players and coaches.
Rock the 'John - Tiger Tip-Off 2008 will be hosted by Jeremiah Dew (J
Dew from the Greenville Drive). It is free of charge and will begin
at 8:00 pm on October 17 in Littlejohn Coliseum, with doors opening
at 7:30 pm. This event is presented by Tom Winkopp's Highpointe,
Coca-Cola, and Papa Johns. For more information visit
