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.
