Pittsburgh comes back to beat Oakland 72-62 in OT
PITTSBURGH 72, OAKLAND 62

PITTSBURGH (AP) -- J.J. Moore had five of his team-high 16 points
in overtime, and Pittsburgh set a school record for largest
halftime deficit overcome with a 72-62 victory over Oakland on
Saturday night.



The Panthers (4-0) trailed by 14 at the half and by as many as
18 in the second half, the third-largest deficit they've come
back from at any point in a game for a win. Pitt went on a 7-0
run over the final 59 seconds of regulation to force overtime.



Pitt dominated the extra session; scoring 11 of the first 13
points in overtime, including a James Robinson jumper that
survived a video review to be sure it beat the shot clock.



The Panthers improved to 95-3 against nonconference opponents in
the 10-year history of the Petersen Events Center.



Corey Petros had 19 points for the Golden Grizzlies (1-3), who
have never beaten a Big East opponent.



Out to beat an opponent from any of the six major conferences
for the third consecutive season, Oakland shot 46.8 percent (22
of 47) from the field. The Grizzlies took the lead with a 24-8
run midway through the first half.



Pitt wouldn't pull even until a pair of free throws by Robinson
with 10 seconds left.



The Panthers even had a chance to win it at the buzzer after
forcing a turnover but Tray Woodall's jumper didn't fall.



No matter, riding a wave of momentum - and with two of Oakland's
starters fouled out - Pitt controlled overtime, outscoring
Oakland 14-4.



The only larger second-half deficit Pitt had overcome in its
program's history was 52 years ago - the Panthers came back from
down 22 to beat Purdue on Dec. 2, 1960.



Pitt had only erased a seven-point deficit over the final 1:30
of regulation once before, a triple-overtime win against West
Virginia Feb. 12, 2010.



Petros added a game-high nine rebounds, Travis Bader had 16
points and Duke Mondy chipped in with 14 points for the
Grizzles.



Robinson had 14 points and Dante Taylor had 12 for Pitt, which
had won its first three games by an average of 30.7 points and
hadn't trailed by more than three at any point yet this season
coming in.



The Panthers lost only 14 times in the first eight years of the
Petersen Events Center but lost five home games last season.
They entered Saturday having won 47 of 48 nonconference games in
November at "The Pete."



But with two true freshmen in the starting lineup, Pitt went
cold from the field and allowed Oakland too many easy baskets.
The Panthers shot 30.8 percent (8 of 26) from the field in the
first half and 7 for 24 from 3-point range for the game.



The Panthers' record for largest halftime deficit overcome for a
victory was 13, against Duquesne three years ago. Oakland led
34-20 at halftime, and the Golden Grizzlies' Bader hit a
3-pointer with less than a minute into the second half to extend
his team's lead to 17.



Eight-and-a-half minutes into the half, a free throw by Drew
Valentine extended Oakland's lead to 48-30.



But Pitt answered by hitting 3-pointers on consecutive
possessions to get back to within 12. When Woodall found prized
freshman Steven Adams for a dunk to pull Pitt to within single
digits with 7:44 to play, the student section known as the
"Oakland Zoo" - named after the Pittsburgh neighborhood Pitt's
campus resides in - erupted.



Oakland came to Pittsburgh having lost games earlier in the week
at Louisiana-Lafayette and Boise State. They made 18 of their
first 33 shots Saturday before Pitt went on a 13-3 run to make
it 53-49 with 5:25 left.



The Panthers forced eight turnovers over the final 3:01 of
regulation.



Pitt played without sophomore guard Cameron Wright, whose father
recently passed away.
