Once again, the Panthers lose due to lackluster defense, poor three point shooting, and bad ball handling.
Nasir Robinson led the Panthers with 19 points and 10 rebounds, but also had 3 turnovers. Ashton Gibbs had 18 points, but was 2-7 from three and had 2 turnovers. Lamar Patterson had 13 points.
Dante Taylor had the rather unusual stat line of 2 points, 11 rebounds, and 3 turnovers in 29 minutes.
Cameron Wright once again started at the two and in 18 minutes he had 3 points and 2 turnovers in just 18 minutes. As usual, John Johnson got more minutes in reserve, this time to the tune of 22 minutes, and came away with 4 points, 5 assists, 3 turnovers, and 5 fouls. Talib Zanna played just 9 minutes after getting hit in the eye and came away with 2 points and 4 rebounds.
Pitt shot just 5-19 from three. Gibbs and Patterson combined for 5-13 which obviously means the rest of the team was 0-6.
The Panthers are now 11-4, 0-2 in the Big East, and it's starting to look more and more that the wheels are in danger of falling off the team. Next up for the Panthers is a road game at DePaul on Thursday. If they lose that game then obviously things are going to start getting really ugly.
