Syracuse leads 30-19 with 3:00 to go in the half. Panthers got close, and narrowed the deficit to 24-19, but a 6-0 Syracuse run has put the Orange up by 11. Lots of sloppiness for the Panthers since the last media timeout, as Toney, Johnson, and Coulilbaly each have two fouls now. Pitt has also turned the ball over 10 times in the first half, including four from McGowens alone.
They will need to be *much* better in the second half to win tonight, or to at least come close to knocking off Syracuse.
