NOTES: The winner will clinch the No. 5 seed in next week's ACC Tournament in Greensboro, N.C., opening league bracket play Thursday at 2 p.m. against either the No. 12 or No. 13 seed ... if Clemson loses, the Tigers settle for the sixth seed, opening Thursday at 9 p.m. ... Clemson needs this win to further its faint NCAA Tournament hopes; the Panthers are currently projected in to March Madness, while the Tigers are trying to make their way back onto the bubble ... Clemson is 13-2 at home this year, after going 8-7 at Littlejohn Coliseum last year ... Pitt, normally a bastion of home success, scuffled to three straight home losses to end this regular season, but the Panthers are 6-2 in true road games this year ... the Panthers walloped the Tigers 76-43 at Petersen Events Center on Jan. 21, shooting 56 percent from the floor against Clemson's 32 percent clip.
