CLEMSON, SC - The Clemson women's basketball team will take on Anderson University at 7:00 pm on Friday night in Littlejohn Coliseum in an exhibition contest. Admission is free to the public, and will be fans' first chance to see the Lady Tigers in action as they prep for their season-opener on Nov. 11 against Presbyterian College.
Head coach Itoro Coleman begins her third season as Clemson's head coach, and returns five players who started 15 or more games in 2011-12. Coleman's roster is devoid of a senior, and features two juniors and ten freshmen and sophomores.
Sophomore Nikki Dixon led the team in scoring a season ago at 12.4 points per game, while junior Quinyotta Pettaway returns after leading the team in rebounding last season at 7.2 per game.
The Tigers return 78 percent of their minutes played from a season ago, 74 percent of scoring, 89 percent of steals, and 88 percent of assists. The freshman class was ranked No. 16 in the nation by ESPN Hoopgurlz, and is led by five-star prospect Jonquel Jones.
The regular season begins on Sunday, Nov. 11, as Clemson plays host to Presbyterian College.
