QUICK FACTS
    Clemson and NC State will meet for the second time this season, and for the 147th time in series history.  NC State holds the all-time advantage, 98-48, and won earlier this season in Raleigh, 66-62, on Jan. 20.
    Clemson is coming off a pair of road losses to Boston College and Virginia, but has won four straight at Littlejohn Coliseum over ACC foes entering Sunday’s game.
    NC State has lost three straight, the last two without injured starting point guard Lorenzo Brown against the ACC’s top two teams, Miami and Duke.
    The Wolfpack won the first meeting between the two teams on Jan. 20, a 66-62 final margin after Clemson had tied it late on two occasions.
    Clemson has won four straight at home over NC State, including last year in overtime.  The last Wolfpack win at Littlejohn was in 2005-06, when Herb Sendek’s team prevailed 94-85 in double overtime.
    Devin Booker had a career-high 27 points in the first meeting with NC State.  He made a career-best 13 field goals on 18 attempts, and played all but one minute at PNC Arena.
    Sunday’s game will feature two of the ACC’s top rebounders.  In fact, NC State’s Richard Howell (3.9) and Clemson’s Booker (3.2) rank one and two in the conference in terms of offensive rebounds per game.  Howell is one of two players in the ACC averaging a double-double.
    Booker is now 15th in Clemson history with 672 career rebounds, and needs just eight to move into 14th place.
    Rod Hall had his top game of the season at NC State on Jan. 20.  He scored 16 points and was 7-for-13 from the field, scoring 12 of his 16 after halftime.
    K.J. McDaniels was Clemson’s only double figure scorer in Thursday’s lopsided defeat at Virginia.  The sophomore posted 10 points, the 13th time in 22 games he has recorded double figures in the scoring column.  That figure is second on the team behind only Booker.
    Bernard Sullivan has scored in four straight appearances, shooting 6-of-9 from the field during that stretch.
    Jordan Roper has been Clemson’s top freshman scorer each of the last two games, posting 11 at Boston College before tallying eight last time out at Virginia.

One of the great things about football season is that it offers the opportunity to welcome people to Clemson (either for the first time or after a long time away).  

At Clemson, we believe that we have something special and are excited to showcase that special college football environment each time we host a visitor.  Our goal  is very simple:  To be incredible hosts to our visitors and provide the ultimate game day experience.

May 3rd Clemson Historic Picture Of The Day

Construction Of The North Upper Deck In 1983

(Photos Uploaded By Alan Cutts)
Today’s photos are a series of shots during the construction of the North Upper Deck in 1983.

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

To illustrate the quality of the investment of the upper deck.  The $13.5 million dollar investment is recovered in just 3 years (7 home games per year) in ticket sales.  Each game Clemson sells out the North Upper Deck, over $600,000 goes towards Clemson Athletics.

The North Upper Deck is slightly larger than the South Upper Deck. The reason for this is simple. Engineers had more room to build behind the North Upper Deck than they did behind the South Upper Deck (with Cemetery Hill behind the South). This al…
