Cincinnati Vs. Pitt: Panthers' Woes Continue

Pitt’s struggles continued and right now, there appears to be no end in sight for the slumping Panthers.

In case you missed it, Pitt dropped their third straight game – this one coming at the hands of Big East foe the Cincinnati Bearcats. The Panthers now have started off Big East play a stunning 0-2.

The problems again came with shooting the ball and holding onto it. Pitt shot only 41% from the field and they also turned the ball over a whopping 17 times. The Panthers held a major edge on the boards, but when you don’t take care of the ball, it’s hard to win.

Frankly, the way the Panthers are playing right now, it’s really hard to pick out too many guaranteed wins on their schedule. There are games they should win, but this was one of them. Playing an average Big East team at home that is missing its best player, would be a win for the Panthers in most seasons. Unfortunately, Pitt is really out of sorts this year and missing starting point guard Tray Woodall isn’t helping. Woodall got back on the court in Pitt’s last game against Notre Dame, but missed tonight’s contest. With reports that he’s not recovering well, it’s hard to know when we might not only see him again, but see him play at a high level.

Cincinnati Vs. Pitt Final Score: Panthers Lose Third In A Row, 66-63

The Pitt Panthers entered their match up with the Cincinnati Bearcats hoping to snap their two game losing skid, but came away short 66-63, despite plenty of chances in the late minutes of the game to tie it. The Panthers got two three point shots in the final seconds for a chance to tie the game, but both Ashton Gibbs and Lamar Patterson couldn't sink the shot.

The guards for the Bearcats had a big night, with Sean Kilpatrick and Jaquon Parker picking up 19 and 21 points respectively. The Panthers were able to significantly out rebound the Bearcats, thanks in part to Nasir Robinson and Dante Taylor picking up double digit rebounds. Robinson led Pitt in scoring with 19 points while Ashton Gibbs picked up 18, but it was just too little too late for the Panthers.
