Girard was an efficient 5-of-6 from the floor and perfect on three 3-point attempts, including 2-for-2 at the line. Hunter was 6-for-6 at the foul line.

With his 12 points, Hall moved into 10th on Clemson’s all-time scoring list and now has 1,561 career points.

A 12-4 run sent the surging Tigers into the lead 39-35 to begin the second half, but the Panthers had answers at each step following. After back-to-back threes from the Panthers’ Carlton Carrington and down 50-46, Clemson used a 10-2 run to get back into the lead.

Pittsburgh cut the Tiger lead to just one at 61-60, but Clemson used a 7-1 run, which included free throws from Hall, a three from Hunter and a fastbreak dunk from Schieffelin to help close out the Panthers and seal the victory.

Josh Beadle (Columbia, S.C./Cardinal Newman) aided the Tiger bench with eight points, three rebounds and an assist. Jack Clark (Cheltenham, Pa./Cheltenham) provided stern defense on the Panthers’ Blake Hinson and provided nine rebounds on the defensive glass.
