Clemson basketball coach Brad Brownell Wednesday hosted the media for a pre-season golf outing at The Reserve at Lake Keowee. Prior to teeing off, Brownell gave a preview of the Tigers for the 2011-12 season.
Brownell is entering his second season with the Tigers. He led them to the NCAA Tournament last year, the Tigers’ fourth straight trip to the Big Dance, a school record. Clemson defeated UAB in the first round in Dayton, OH then lost to West Virginia in Tampa.
The Tigers were 22-12 last season finishing fourth in the ACC with a 9-7 mark. They defeated Boston College in the ACC Tournament first round then lost in overtime to North Carolina in the semi-finals.
The Tigers open their season at home November 11th against Gardner-Webb.
