Clemson Basketball programs will receive upgraded facilities
Clemson announced that the Board of Trustees has approved a new $40 million renovation and construction project to benefit both university basketball programs. Littlejohn Coliseum and Swann Pavilion will both have upgrades to existing spaces as well as new construction. Women’s head coach Amanda Butler praised the efforts:
“This is a great step forward for our program. Clemson continues to invest in basketball, and we’re excited for what these improvements mean for the demands of our program and winning at a high level. We’re thankful to our donors and fans who have made this possible, and all the work that has gone into the process so far.”
Clemson Baseball coach Erik Bakich spoke with the media Thursday
“I love Cam, I love his family and I appreciate the loyalty. There was tampering going on with him. Third parties and that’s how it’s done. It’s never done from direct coach to player, it’s the third party stuff. He held his ground and stuck his feet in and their family realized that he’s not only grown as a baseball player but as a person and his friends are here and he’s thriving here. You don’t want to mess with success and he’s successful here.”
Bakich noted that pitcher Billy Barlow, who was hindered by injuries in 2023, had surgery and it currently rehabbing. He confirmed that Barlow is a candidate for the weekend rotation next season.
The Tigers also received another transfer into the program.
