The buzzer rings. Game over. Pitt dominates unexpectedly. Pitt is 8-0 against top five teams at home. That was a gun game. Thanks for following!
Lamb hits the shot. 78-63 will be the final!
UConn has excepted their fate and are not fouling. A three from Gibbs is the exclamation point. 78-61!
Pitt fans chanting, "this is our house", and "it's all over".
More fouls. Just delaying the inevitable. This is one of those games that has fouls every play down because the refs just love to call everything instead of having it be an interesting basketball game. 73-61.
Pitt has pulled away, up 13. Alex Oriakhi is fouled and will go to the line with 2:20 left. Is it too late?
Pitt back up by 11.
Napier hits a three for UConn!
Kemba has all the field goals this half for UConn, he is on the bench. Gibbs hits a three. That might be the dagger.
This game has turned UGLY.
PITT Misses Two Wide OPEN LAYUPS. THEN UCONN DOES THE SAME.
Connecticut misses the three, Pittsburgh ball. Has the momentum ended?
Wanamaker hits the layup!
KEMBA WALKER drives and scores! Seven point game!
Charles Okwandu has fouled out of the game. Oriakhi is back in the game.
Walker has 29 of Connecticut's 53 points.
KEMBA WALKER HITS ANOTHER THREE!!!! It's a nine point game with 6:02 left. Timeout!
Kemba Walker hits a three...finally. Lead back to twelve.
In terms of Big East action tomorrow.. Syracuse hosts Providence. Cincinnati hosts DePaul. Seton Hall, whose best player Jeremy Hazell was just shot the other day (is okay), will take on South Florida at home. Rutgers plays at Madison Square Garden against North Carolina, that is not a league game.
Walker responds with a two. He is doing EVERYTHING. Another shot for Pitt. You seriously have to question the effort of UConn at this point.
AND-1 FOR GARY McGHEE!
Walker hits the layup and the lead is 12 again, UConn hanging in there, nine minutes to go.
Gilbert Brown picks up his fourth foul.
UConn is 2-13 from three point range. That is 15.4%.
