    Clemson is 3-1 in games played at Colonial Life Arena.  In 2004-05, Cheyenne Moore hit a go-ahead three-pointer in overtime to lift the Tigers to victory.  In 2006-07, James Mays scored 21 to lead Clemson in a 74-53 win.  In 2008-09, Terrence Oglesby and K.C. Rivers combined for 45 points in a 98-87 triumph for Clemson.
    Clemson is coming off a 73-61 loss to Purdue.  The Tigers trailed by 20 at halftime, their largest deficit at the break under Head Coach Brad Brownell and largest in any game since trailing Duke at home by 21 in the 2006-07 season.
    South Carolina, under the direction of first-year coach Frank Martin, is 5-2 on the season after falling to St. John’s on the road Thursday night.  The Gamecocks have won two games in overtime and received a boost in their last game when Bruce Ellington returned to action following the completion of the football team’s regular season.

    McDaniels has nine three-point baskets through six games, two more than he made the entire 2011-12 season.
    Senior forward Milton Jennings, who was suspended for violation of team rules prior to Wednesday’s game against Purdue, will not play Sunday.

May 3rd Clemson Historic Picture Of The Day

The North Upper Deck is comprised of 22,500 yards of concrete, 2,200 Tons of reinforcing steel, 3,000 tons of asphalt, 5,800 gallons of paint, and 60,000 pounds of aluminum seating

The North Upper Deck height is 13.36 stories and the length is 560 feet. The total cost of the North Upper Deck was $13.5 million
