Detroit vs. Pitt: Panthers overcome 1st-half deficit, win 74-61

Joe Camporeale-US PRESSWIRE

Tray Woodall scored 14 points in the Panthers' 74-61 win.

Pitt improved to 7-1 on the season with a 74-61 defeat of the Detroit Titans Saturday.

The Panthers were forced to come back from a 37-29 halftime deficit, as Detroit's Ray McCallum scored 17 points in the first half. Detroit went cold in the second half, though, not scoring until almost six minutes in, and a pair of Talib Zanna free throws finally tied the game with 14:19 remaining. Pitt took the lead for good six minutes later, and poured in the points down the stretch, scoring 45 in the second half to seal the victory.

Zanna had 16 points, while Tray Woodall had 14 for the Panthers. Lamar Patterson had 12 points, five rebounds and seven assists. McCallum had 24 in the losing effort for the Titans.

Pitt's only loss on the season comes against a tough Michigan team. Other than that, the Panthers have played a weak schedule. Their non-conference slate continues against Duquesne on Wednesday.
