Pitt's offense finally went cold and the Panthers were unable to find a way to overcome it, falling to Cincinnati 44-43 at Madison Square Garden on a Titus Rubles put-back with 5 seconds remaining.

It was the first loss of the season for the Panthers, who fell to 10-1. Cincinnati snapped a two-game losing skid to improve to 8-2.

Lamar Patterson scored 18 points to pace five Panthers in double figures, Talib Zanna had 10 points and 15 rebounds as Pitt topped Youngstown State 91-73 despite 28 points from YSU's Kendrick Perry.

Neither team could find the range from deep in the first half as the two squads combined for just two makes on 14 attempts.

The list of Pitt basketball legends is a short one. Charles Smith and Billy Knight are on it, as are Don Hennon, Doc Carlson and people named Charley Hyatt and Claire Cribbs.

More recent Panthers like Brandin Knight and DeJuan Blair have moved onto the list, joined by women’s players like Lorri Johnson, Jennifer Bruce, Shavonte Zellous and Marcedes Walker.

Cameron Wright led five Panthers in double-figures with 14 points as Pitt dispatched Loyola-Marymount 85-68 at the Petersen Events Center Friday night. Pitt is off until Youngstown State visits next Saturday.

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.
