Pitt Vs. Duquesne: Panthers Win Another City Game, 80-69

New, 3 comments

We might have more on the game later, but for now, I direct you to the SB Nation Pittsburgh stream on the City Game. In a nutshell, Pitt turned the ball over (a lot ... 23 times) and allowed the Dukes to shoot better than 50% from the field.

The difference in the game? Rebounding. Pitt, according to the early unofficial count, won on the boards 34-14.

14 rebounds? Yeah, that'll cause you to lose nearly every time.

Big story of the game was Dante Taylor, who had 15 and 10 on 6-6 shooting. That's good enough for maybe his best career game. Think Khem Birch starting spurred him on a bit?

That's the 11th City Game in a row for Pitt and after a close ten minutes in the first half, Pitt began to pull away and never trailed after that. Ashton Gibbs led the Panthers with 18 points on the night.
