CBI Tournament 2012 Finals, Pittsburgh Vs. Washington State Score Update: Panthers Lead By Three At Half

After one half of game one of the 2012 CBI finals, the Pitt Panthers lead Washington State 38-35 in Pullman. Pitt was on fire from behind the arc, particularly down the stretch as Tray Woodall went on a personal run to build the lead for Jamie Dixon's club. The Panthers hit seven of 13 attempts from three-point range for an impressive 54 percent mark. They played a crisp and efficient first half, shooting it well but also only committing two turnovers.

Woodall leads all scorers with 11 points. He had eight quick points in a two minute stretch after the under four timeout. While Woodall was hitting from outside, it was Nasir Robinson doing the work on the inside for Pitt. The senior had only two points in the overtime win against Butler but he has nine points already against the Cougars. The athletic J.J. Moore has provided a spark off the bench for months now, and he's added eight points again tonight.

While Pitt is shooting well, Wazzu is right there with them and has missed only two attempts from downtown so far. The Cougars are shooting better than 60 percent from the field. This is a best of three series with the final two games set to take place at Pitt. It would be a huge boost to take the first game on the road and give the Panthers some cushion before they come home.
