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.

Pitt fell behind by 10 points in the first half, but outscored Detroit by 21 in the second half to pull away for a 74-61 victory Saturday night at the Pete.

Call it a double-edged sword.

The Broomfield Event Center lights glare down on Chris Taft. They burn bright, like his promising basketball career once did. What little fans are left of the sparse crowd are hushed in sympathetic silence.

This is basketball purgatory.

Lamar Patterson and Tray Woodall each scored 15 points, Talib Zanna had 12 and 8 rebounds, and James Robinson added 11 and 8 assists, as Pitt pulled away from Howard 70-46 Tuesday night.

You may not call it pretty, but it was a win nonetheless.
