Pitt's win streak has reached one. Thank you Providence. The Friars stink but a win is a win and maybe this will give the team some much needed confidence.
Ashton Gibbs got back on target and was heaving some long threes. He led all Panthers with 22 points thanks to going 5-11 from three.
But the best sign that things may chance is the return to form of Travon Woodall who had 17 points, 9 assists, and just one turnover. He also made all four of his three pointers.
Nasir Robinson added 14 points and 6 rebounds while Lamar Patterson chipped in with 9 points, 11 rebounds, and 3 steals. The fifth starter, Talib Zanna had 9 points and 5 rebounds. Off the bench, John Johnson was tops with 7 points.
Pitt and Providence are now both 12-9 overall and 1-7 in the league. Next up for the Panthers is Georgetown at home on Saturday.
