Pitt Vs. Georgetown: Panthers Hold Halftime Lead

Coming off its first Big East win against Providence on Wednesday, Pitt seized the momentum in the first half of its game against No. 10 Georgetown on Saturday at the Petersen Events Center, taking a 33-22 lead into halftime.

It was the big men who did most of the damage for the Panthers. Lamar Patterson led the way for the offense with nine points in the half on 3-4 shooting. Talib Zanna and Nasir Robinson weren't far behind, putting up eight points each. Zanna also had a big half on the glass, pulling down a game-high eight rebounds.

The Panthers were efficient on offense, shooting 48.1 percent from the field while holding the Hoyas to just 33.3 percent and nine field goals in the first half. Pitt was responsible with the ball, too, turning it over just five times, and dominated the boards by an 18-14 margin overall heading into the locker rooms.
