Pitt runs away from No. 15 Duke 76-62
PITTSBURGH (AP) Jamel Artis scored 17 points and Pittsburgh gave its NCAA Tournament hopes a needed jolt as the Panthers dominated No. 15 Duke 76-62 on Sunday.
Senior point guard James Robinson added 14 points, seven assists and three rebounds in his final home game at the Petersen Events Center as the Panthers (20-8, 9-7 Atlantic Coast Conference) overwhelmed the Blue Devils (22-8, 10-6). Sheldon Jeter had 11 points for Pitt while Michael Young and Ryan Luther had 10 points each.
The Panthers held Duke to 37 percent shooting (18 of 48) and outscored the Blue Devils in the paint 24-6.
Grayson Allen had 17 points for Duke and stayed out of trouble after being admonished by the ACC for his role in tripping a Florida State player in a Blue Devils victory last Thursday.
