PITTSBURGH — Xavier Johnson is probably not going back to the bench any time soon.
The Pitt point guard, coming off the bench for the second time in his career and first time this season, went off for a career high 32 points on Wednesday in Pitt’s 83-72 upset victory over No. 16 Virginia Tech to snap a three-game slide.
