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.

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.

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.
