Tim Frazier scored 27 points but Penn State had no answer for Talib Zanna or Lamar Patterson down the stretch and Pitt rode their inside game to a 78-69 win over Penn State at the Petersen Events Center in the ACC-Big Ten Challenge.

For the first time since 2006, the Panthers oldest rival came to Oakland.

Following old tradition, Pitt, once again took down that foe.

Cameron Wright had 20 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists as Pitt blew open a close game at halftime and cruised to an 84-67 blowout of Duquesne in the City Game, Pitt's 13th consecutive win in a once competitive rivalry.

Pitt (7-0) continued their trend of storming out of the gate in the opening minutes, as the Panthers had a double-digit lead before the game was five minutes old.

Year after year many college athletes transfer from one school to another. Football and both men’s and women’s basketball see more transfers than others, but recently the number of transfers in men’s hoops specifically has sky-rocketed.

Going into the 2013-14 academic year, nearly 450 male athletes switched schools to play basketball.

Lamar Patterson lit up the Barclays Center for the second consecutive night, leading five Pitt players in double figures with 24 points as the Panthers throttled Stanford 88-67 to win the Progressive Legends Classic in Brooklyn.

With 3:53 remaining in the first half, Lamar Patterson was sent to the foul line for three free throw attempts. Patterson swished the first two, but missed the third.

Lamar Patterson had a career high 23 points for Pittsburgh, and the Panthers ran away with a win in the semifinals of the Legends Classic, ousting Texas Tech, 76-53.

Undefeated through five games, Pitt didn't waste time notching its second consecutive blowout victory, leading the Red Raiders 41-18 at halftime a week after similarly dominating Lehigh University.

Talib Zanna's 23 points and 14 rebounds led Pitt to a 77-58 blowout victory over Lehigh in the Panthers final tune-up before facing Texas Tech in Brooklyn next week.

Pitt led 12-9 with 13 minutes left in the first half, but a 22-2 run over the next six minutes stretched the lead to 34-11 and Lehigh never got within 18 points after that.

Lamar Patterson scored 20 points on Sunday and Pittsburgh shot a school-record 81 percent from the field in the first half to beat Howard 84-52.

Pitt enters the 2013-14 season after a recent string of unprecedented player exodus. Since 2010, Pitt has lost six players to transfers—including the surprising departure of senior J.J. Moore—and one player (center Steve Adams) to early entry in the NBA draft.

The loss of size from those seven, including former ESPN 100 recruits Malcolm Gilbert, Khem Birch, Adams and Moore, has left the Panthers painfully thin along the frontcourt.
