And with exactly 12:00 to go in the first half, Panthers lead the Orange by a score of 9-8. Pitt has struggled offensively so far, shooting just 3 of 9 from the field, and not yet registering a three-pointer. Three of their nine points have come from the free throw line.
Simply put, they'll need to do a bit better offensively to actually win this game. As far as an early positive goes, Buddy Boeheim has yet to score tonight, which is always nice from a Pitt fan perspective.
