Pitt falls in the final seconds at No. 12 Miami

PSR Logo
Ryan Luther had 12 points and 7 rebounds, but No. 12 Miami scored with 1.4 seconds left to edge Pitt 65-63 Tuesday night in South Florida.

Angel Rodriguez’s tip-in of a Devon Reed missed shot with 1.4 seconds remaining lifted the Hurricanes over the Panthers.

After Pitt guard James Robinson drilled a 3-pointer to tie the game at 63 with 30 seconds remaining, Miami missed two shots on their final possession before the ball was batted into the left hand of the 5-11 senior Miami guard, who tipped the ball in the hoop for the go-ahead score.

After calling their final timeout, Pitt’s Robinson tried a desperation 3-point shot, but despite obvious contact from Rodriguez the officials did not call a foul and the Panthers went home with another loss to ranked team.

Rodriguez finished the game leading all scorers with 17 points to go along with a game-high  eight assists for the Hurricanes (19-4, 8-3 ACC). Senior center Tonye Jekeri recorded a double-double with ten points and ten rebounds. Miami has won six of their last seven games.

Forward Micheal Young and Ryan Luther led the Panthers (17-6, 6-5 ACC) in scoring with 12 points apiece. Luther led the Panthers with seven rebounds and Robinson led Pitt in assists with four. The Panthers have lost consecutive games for the first time all season.

This game was evenly matched with Pitt outrebounding Miami 32-30, while Miami had more assists with a 12-11 advantage, and each team had three blocks.

Pitt led 33-29 at half and neither team had a lead of over eight points throughout the game.

The Panthers will travel to Chapel Hill to take on the ninth-ranked North Carolina Tar Heels on Sunday afternoon, while Miami will travel to Tallahassee to take on the Florida State Seminoles.

Josh Bell had not hit a walk-off home run since he was a member of the Altoona Curve in 2015. He changed that Friday with a soaring shot for the left field loonies.
