Second Half Domination Spurs Boston College Over Pitt, 81-58



PITTSBURGH — Pitt dropped its 14th straight game, losing 81-58 to Boston College on Tuesday.

The Panthers led by as many as 15 in the first half, but gave it all back and then some, while in the process, giving the Eagles their first ACC road win in almost three years.

The Panthers took a 15-point lead with 7:17 to play in the first half, but the Eagles were able to whittle it away. From that point until the half time break, Pitt was 2-for-5 with six turnovers while the Eagles went on a 16-4 run to close to a two-point difference.

Pitt was out-rebounded, 43-22, including an 18-2 deficit on the offensive glass.

Parker Stewart led the team with 16 points on 5 of 10 shooting. Jared Wilson-Frame had 11 and was 4 for 11. Pitt shot 44 percent from 3-point range (11-25), but made just nine shots that weren’t from beyond the arc (9-23) and finished with only nine free throw attempts.

The Panthers will next take the court against Florida State on Sunday. That game will tip off at 6 p.m. and will be televised on ESPNU.
