The men’s basketball program will take on Lander University in the newly renovated Littlejohn Coliseum in an exhibition contest on Nov. 3 at 7 p.m.

While admission is complimentary, season ticket-holders will receive a printed ticket in the mail as part of their full package. Single-game attendees can reserve a ticket online at ClemsonTigers.com in advance, or pick them up from the box office on the night of November 3.

The exhibition will be the first game played in the newly renovated Littlejohn Coliseum, which underwent $63.5 million upgrades over the past 16 months.

Clemson returns three starters and nine lettermen off the 2015-16 team that went 17-14 overall and 10-8 in the ACC. Included in the list of returning starters is first-team All-ACC forward Jaron Blossomgame, who was third in the league in scoring at 18.7 points per game last season. Donte Grantham (10.2 points per game) and Avry Holmes (10.0) also return as double-figure scorers for Brad Brownell’s program.

The regular season opens on Nov. 11 against the University of Georgia. The team’s first official practice is set for this Saturday. Regular-season tickets are on sale and can be purchased by calling 1-800-CLEMSON or visiting ClemsonTigers.com.
