Pitt Vs. Delaware State: Panthers Roll To Another Easy Victory

Pitt had no trouble with Delaware State on Wednesday, winning 70-42.

Once again, the Panthers showed off their depth, outscoring the Hornets in bench points 39-24. Lots of players made their mark tonight and no one Pitt player was on the court for 25 minutes tonight. When you think about it, that’s pretty remarkable.

Pitt’s best player tonight came from the bench as Dante Taylor led Pitt with 14 points and 10 rebounds. He achieved a career high in points and earned his first career double double.

Let’s face it, Taylor has struggled a bit. As Pitt fans, we were all hoping it wouldn’t take more than a season for him to get a double double. Even most of his points tonight were of the putback variety and not actual back-to-the-basket type moves. But nothing can be done about his slow start and the fact that he’s more active and improving is far more important.

Pitt outrebounded the Hornets 40-16 and the game was never seriously in doubt. Delaware State, a pretty decent defensive team, did manage to hold Pitt 12 points below their season average.

The Panthers will now gear up for a big game Saturday against undefeated No. 11 / 13 ranked Tennessee as part of the Big East / SEC Challenge.
