No. 3 Pittsburgh Looks to Go 14-0 With a Win at No. 8 Georgetown

After No. 2 UConn's 74-63 loss to Georgetown earlier this week, the Panthers look to defeat the Hoyas this Saturday to move up to the No. 2 spot in the AP poll.

Pittsburgh is coming off of a 78-72 win over Rutgers on Wednesday where they were able to overcome two of the deficiencies that have plagued their team over the past year: not having a three-point shooter, and having DeJuan Blair in foul trouble.

Sophomore guard Brad Wanamaker came up big off the bench for the Panthers against Rutgers, with a career high of 15 points (thirteen of which were scored in the second half), and two clutch three-pointers.

The Panthers will take on No. 8 Georgetown (10-1, 1-0) at noon on Saturday at the Verizon Center in D.C.
