  • Clemson is in search of a school-record 11th ACC win Saturday against Pittsburgh. Three previous teams finished with 10 regular season wins (two in 14-game seasons and one in a 16-game season), while this year's squad achieved the mark last time out with a 58-54 victory over Miami.
  • The Tigers' five-win ACC improvement from last season is tied for the second-best jump in conference wins in school history.

SERIES HISTORY
CU Series W-L record: Pittsburgh leads 2-0
Streak: Pittsburgh has won both meetings

QUICK HITS

  • Clemson looks to avenge an earlier meeting with Pittsburgh, a game the Panthers won handily at Petersen Events Center, 76-43.
  • The Tiger program has had just 12 teams in its entire history win at least 20 games in a season. Saturday, Clemson's current team has a chance to make it 13 with a victory over Pitt.
  • A Clemson win would guarantee the Tigers the No. 5 seed in next week's ACC Tournament in Greensboro.
  • Saturday would ordinarily be a Senior Day celebration at Littlejohn Coliseum. But for the first time since 1996, Clemson does not have a senior on its roster.
  • Clemson celebrates its Alumni Reunion Weekend on Saturday. Nearly 80 former players, managers and coaches are expected to return to Clemson.
  • The Tigers have won four of their past five games entering Saturday. During that stretch, junior guard Damarcus Harrison has solidified a starting spot by averaging 13.2 points per game and converting 11-of-23 three-pointers.
  • K.J. McDaniels needs nine points Saturday to reach 500 for the season.
