Pittsburgh 89, North Florida 47

Tray Woodall scored 14 points and tied a season-high with nine

assists, and Pittsburgh pulled away in the second half of an 89-47

win over North Florida on Saturday night.

Dante Taylor led Pitt with 16 points and Talib Zanna added 15

for the Panthers (9-1). Lamar Patterson scored 13, and Cameron

Wright had 10 points off the bench as Pitt won its fifth

straight.

The Ospreys, giving away height at every position, settled for

jumpers, one of the reasons they never made it to the free-throw

line all night.

The Panthers shot a season-high 59 percent (33 of 58) from the

field and dominated the final 25 minutes after getting serious on

defense.

Travis Wallace and David Jeune scored 10 points each for North

Florida (3-6), which scored just 20 points over the game’s final 25

minutes after briefly tying it at 27 in the first half.
