PITTSBURGH (AP) — Tray Woodall had 13 points, four assists and three steals as Pittsburgh continued its mastery of Top 10 teams at home, pulling away from No. 6 Syracuse in a 65-55 win on Saturday.
BOX SCORE: Pittsburgh 65, No. 6 Syracuse 55
Trey Zeigler added six points, four rebounds and four assists off the bench for the Panthers (18-5, 6-4 Big East), who improved to 13-1 against teams ranked in the Top 10 since the Petersen Events Center opened a decade ago.
C.J. Fair led Syracuse (18-3, 6-2) with 20 points and Brandon Triche scored 14 but the Orange never led in the second half while losing two straight games for the first time in nearly two years. Michael Carter-Williams added 13 points for Syracuse but the nation’s leader in assists finished with just two — nearly seven below his average.
