Wagner Vs. Pitt: Panthers Trailing At Half, 29-25

Pitt is off to an uncharacteristically slow start and the team finds themselves trailing 29-25 at the half.

The Panthers’ leading scorer, Ashton Gibbs, is having his worst game of the season. He’s been held scoreless and is 0-7 from the field. Pitt does hold the rebounding edge, as expected, but is simply not shooting the ball well. The Panthers have hit only eight of their 23 shots and have no players in double figures. Wagner, on the other hand, has two – guards Kenneth Ortiz and Tyler Murray each have ten points so far.

Pitt is also having some trouble holding onto the ball as they have nine turnovers. Wagner has used full-court pressure to force Pitt into some mistakes and it’s clearly giving the Panthers some problems.

Talib Zanna is leading the way for Pitt with six points and six rebounds off the bench.
