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.

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

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.

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.

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.
