The Brownell Enhancement Fund

At Clemson University, our fans love nothing more than cheering our sports teams to victory. And in the past few years, we’ve had a lot to cheer about! Men’s basketball has brought new life and energy back to Littlejohn Coliseum. The 2020-21 season gave us much excitement, despite the limited crowds due to COVID-19. We watched our men’s basketball program win the 2020 Space Coast Challenge, pick-up marquee wins over Alabama, Florida State, Louisville, and North Carolina, and receive an at-large berth to the 2021 NCAA Tournament. After many successes in 20-21, we are looking forward to another great year in 2021-22! Make your mark and help keep Clemson Men’s Basketball a perennial contender!

Men's Basketball Head Coach Brad Brownell

The money raised for the Brownell Enhancement Fund plays a crucial role in the development of our men’s basketball student-athletes. This fund provides them with an array of benefits and experiences to allow them to become tremendous ambassadors to our great University.

The Brownell Enhancement Fund…

…will and has been used to provide the following opportunities for the Clemson basketball program’s recruiting and player development efforts:

  • Updates to the locker room completed after the 2020-21 season
  • Gold Medal-winning trip to Italy in 2019 for the World University Games
  • Purchased a high-end analytics system used by top-level NBA teams
  • Charter travel to in-season tournaments

The Price of Success

In college basketball, it is estimated that a single NCAA tournament appearance can result in the equivalent of $6 million in free media publicity. That level of exposure benefits every area of an institution. Coach Brownell’s mission to take our program to that next level in the nation’s most competitive basketball league — the Atlantic Coast Conference — has become a reality. But he needs our support to provide the tools to keep us there.

With all the momentum surrounding our recent success and newly renovated, state-of-the-art facilities, now is the time to provide Coach Brownell and his staff with a yearly funding stream for recruiting efforts and player development, key factors necessary to maintain a winning program year after year. The Brownell Enhancement Fund will be used to keep our Tiger basketball team at the top of their game. Coach Brownell’s vision for a winning Clemson basketball program is no less ambitious than what Coach Dabo Swinney has accomplished with Clemson football. Our team needs your support to turn that vision into
a reality.

Coach Brownell, his staff and players are doing their part to take Clemson Basketball to the next level. Are you ready to step onto the court with them and help keep our Tigers at the top of the ACC and NCAA rankings? A gift to the Brownell Enhancement Fund will be a slam dunk for our basketball program and ultimately, for
Clemson University.
