NIT Men's Basketball: Jordan Roper

Clemson thought its first-round NIT time slot was a tough sell.

ESPN and the NIT dialed up another humdinger, pitting the Tigers against Illinois Sunday morning at 11 - conflicting with numerous church services, the final day of spring break, and with the finale of Clemson's three-game baseball series against Florida State.

Once again, the Clemson athletic department is offering steeply discounted general admission tickets for the game - $10 adult admission, $4 for teens 13-18, and free for Clemson students and children 12 and under.

The Tigers, 21-12, have a chance to play at home all the way to the NIT final four at Madison Square Garden in New York. The Clemson-Illinois winner will face the winner of the game between Robert Morris and Belmont. If Clemson wins, the quarterfinal game would be played at Littlejohn. If Illinois wins, it will play on the opponent's home floor, due to the unavailability of its arena.

Sunday's game will mark another national television appearance for Brad Brownell's team, as the game will be broadcast by ESPN.

Despite the early start for the basketball game, first pitch for the Clemson-Florida State baseball game remains at 1 p.m. at Doug Kingsmore Stadium.

I wish I was in Clemson and could attend this game. This team needs all the support they can get. They deserve this support because they are trying their best and we will have a good team next year if they get to play more games this year.
