PITTSBURGH (AP) - Pittsburgh coach Jamie Dixon likes the improvement he's seen from his team over the past few weeks.

Still, Dixon knows it's time for the Panthers (17-5, 5-4 Big East) to bolster a resume with an eye-catching win. Pitt will get its chance on Saturday when No. 6 Syracuse (18-2, 6-1) visits.

The Panthers are 0-2 at home against ranked opponents this season, falling to Cincinnati on New Year's Eve and Marquette three weeks ago. Pitt does own a 25-point romp on the road at Georgetown, but Dixon says the Panthers need that kind of performance at the Petersen Events Center.

Pitt is 12-1 at home against top 10 teams since The Pete opened a decade ago and the Panthers are 9-3 against the Orange under Dixon. Syracuse hasn't played since an upset loss at Villanova last weekend.
