1. Tray Woodall was the player of the game with 24 points, including 5-8 from three and 5-5 from the line. He also had 5 rebounds, 2 assists, a steal, and even a block. If he could play more like that then Pitt could be a Sweet 16 team.
2. Another player needed to get to that level is freshman Steven Adams who may finally be getting it. Yes, his hands still betray him sometimes, and he was brutal in his put back attempts in the first half, but he ended up with 8 points, 14 rebounds, 2 blocks, and a steal.
3. Lamar Patterson again had a nice all around game with 13 points, including 5-8 from the field and 3-4 from three, as well as 3 rebounds, 3 steals, 2 assists, and a block.
4. James Robinson was once again solid with 9 points, 3 rebounds, 7 assists, and a steal. He also only had 2 turnovers.
5. Talib Zanna had a low key game with 4 points, 7 rebounds, and 3 turnovers.
6. On the downside, the bench, normally a strength, was brutal. They ended up with just 8 points and they shot 3-19 from the field. J.J. Moore was 1-9, but he did have 6 rebounds and the bench chipped in with 15 rebounds altogether. They also had 1 assist to go with 6 turnovers. To make matters worse, they shot 2-5 from the line.
7. Duquesne had a terrible shooting night, going for 31.6% from the field, 23.8% from three, and with no inside game, they only attempted 6 free throws, making four. But Pitt wasn't much better, shooting 38.7% from the field and 56.3% from the line. The saving grace, however, came from three, thanks mostly to Woodall, as the Panthers made 9-16, good for 56.3%.
