Both teams have struggled a bit at times in the first half, but at the break, Pitt holds a slim 32-29 lead in Morgantown over host West Virginia. The Panthers started off slowly and trailed much of the first half. Down eight, though, the team started to go on a bit of a run and with about three minutes left, Pitt took their first lead, 26-23.
Pacing the Panthers is starting point guard Tray Woodall. Woodall is the only player on both teams in double figures and his 16 points easily lead the team. For West Virginia, it’s been Truck Bryant and Kevin Jones, leading the way with a combined 17 points.
A bad stretch by the Mountaineers allowed Pittsburgh to get back into it. West Virginia had a stretch of more than seven minutes without a field goal, also turning the ball over five times during that period.
