No. 8 Cincinnati blew No. 24 Pitt out of the gym in the second half, bombing the Panthers 44-27 in the final 20 minutes en route to a 70-61 win at the Petersen Events Center on Monday afternoon. Pitt has now dropped six of their last 10 Big East games at the Pete.

“Basically the scouting report was wear them out.”

Cashmere Wright made it sound simple enough. Cincinnati made it look even better on the floor.

Talib Zanna had 20 points and 9 rebounds, and guards Tray Woodall and James Robinson combined for 17 assists as Pitt pulled away from Delaware State for a 71-43 victory.

You have to find something out of such a poor non-conference schedule.

For the Panthers, finishing the second half on a ferocious rampage has to suffice.

Only a few short weeks ago, there was a lot of hype about Steven Adams, Pitt's seven-foot freshman center. Now, after a percieved slow start to his career, there are a lot of questions.

Nationally, Jeff Eisenberg of Yahoo Sports even listed Adams as one of the most disappointing freshmen in the c

Steven Adams had his first career double-double with 16 points and 10 rebounds, J.J. Moore scored 18 points and Pitt slaughtered Bethune-Cookman 89-40 at the Pete on Saturday night.

Officially tonight was merely another Panthers victory; but to everyone who saw it, it classified as a complete white-washing.

Prior to the 2011-12 basketball season, Pitt basketball fans buzzed with the anticipation of what Khem Birch would bring to the Panthers on the hardwood. Coming out of Notre Dame Prep, ESPN ranked the 6-9 Canadian phenom as the top power forward prospect in the nation, and No. 12 overall player in his class.

After selecting Pitt over offers from some of college basketball’s supreme powers—North Carolina, Kansas, Ohio State—Pitt fans and administration expected the five-star prospect to be the piece nee

Tray Woodall had 14 points and 9 assists to pace four Pitt players in double-figures as the Panthers outscored North Florida 62-20 over the final 25 minutes in an 89-47 blowout at the Petersen Events Center Saturday night.

There was no question about this one.

I spent three days late last month visiting 18 high schools across the WPIAL. I drove 533 miles, took hundreds of photographs, shook hands with dozens of coaches, athletic directors and principals and climbed way too many stadium steps. I loved every minute of it, of course.

Bill Cherpak misses the way it used to be. Back in the 80’s, when the current Thomas Jefferson High School coach was a player at Steel Valley, the recruiting process wasn’t publicized. It was low-key compared to the present.
