Brogdon's 3 gives UVa a 48-45 win over Pitt
VIRGINIA 48, PITTSBURGH 45
PITTSBURGH (AP) -- Virginia coach Tony Bennett installed a new
play late last month for end-of-game situations, but he didn't
have much confidence in.
Maybe Malcolm Brogdon was saving himself for a big moment.
"We run that play a lot and we never make it in practice,"
Bennett said. "I guess it's better to make it in a game."
Brogdon came off screen and drained a 3-pointer with 0.4 seconds
remaining to lift the visiting Cavaliers a 48-45 victory.
The play is designed for either Brogdon or Joe Harris, the
team's top 3-point shooter. Harris was covered on the play.
Brogdon rubbed off a double curl to hit the shot well beyond the
"The kid hit a tough shot," Pitt coach Jamie Dixon said. "He was
going sideways and hit it from 25 feet. He made the play."
Brogdon finished 16 points for Virginia (17-5, 8-1), which
maintained sole possession of second place in the ACC. The
Cavaliers have won five consecutive games since losing at Duke
on Jan. 13.
Pitt (18-4, 6-3) lost consecutive games for the first time this
season and fell into a third-place tie with Duke in the
conference standings. The Panthers have lost three of their past
five after opening with a 16 wins in their first 17 games.
Pitt freshman Jamel Artis led the Panthers with 11 points, but
he missed a wide open layup with 10 seconds remaining after
grabbing an offensive rebound. A bucket would have given the
Panthers the lead.
"I didn't finish," Artis said. "I have to finish."
Neither team held more than a four-point lead at any time
throughout the game in a matchup of two of the ACC's top
Cameron Wright made a 3-pointer as the shock clock expired for a
44-41 lead with 6:52 remaining. Wright fumbled a pass, picked
the ball off his shoetops and released in one awkward motion to
make an improbable shot.
Virginia did not let the bad luck affect their psyche. The
Cavaliers tied the score again after London Perrantes made two
free throws with 4:47 to go and the Cavaliers, who lead the
conference in scoring defense at 55 points per game, did not
allow Pitt to make a field goal in the game's last 6:52.
"We came up with big stops," Bennett said. "That was a
hard-fought game, not a lot of easy looks. Each team thought
maybe they'd have a chance to separate but then the other team
would make a play. It stayed tight. You knew it would come down
to a score and a stop."
