Pitt Basketball: Panthers' Balance Too Much For Seton Hall

New, comment

Time for a short recap - busy weekend not helping things.

Pitt didn't come close to experiencing a letdown as they ran away with a 74-53 victory against Seton Hall on Saturday.

The Panther offense wasn't as crisp as it has been lately, but there was plenty of defense and rebounding to go around. Pitt had a +19 rebounding advantage on the glass and took 21 more shots than Seton Hall.

The offensive attack was also extremely balanced, even more so than normal. Nine players had at least five points with Gary McGhee leading the way with 13 points and nine rebounds.

Both stars for each team, Jeremy Hazell and Ashton Gibbs didn't have great games. Each shot only 3-13 from the field and failed to reach double figures in scoring.

Brad Wanamaker, though, actually came fairly close to a triple double with nine points, seven rebounds, and seven assists. Former Pitt recruit Herb Pope led Seton Hall with a double double, 15 points, and ten rebounds.

New football head coach, Todd Graham, also addressed the crowd at halftime and was on the air for a few minutes during the broadcast.

Now onto Monday's battle against the Cuse.
