Pitt Embarrassed By Rutgers on Home Court

Eli Carter scored 14 points, Dane Miller added 11 points and 12 rebounds and Rutgers crushed reeling Pittsburgh 62-39 on Tuesday night.

The Scarlet Knights (10-7, 2-2 Big East) held the Panthers to 21 percent shooting (12 of 57) while sending Pittsburgh to its fifth straight loss, the longest losing streak in coach Jamie Dixon’s nine years on the bench.

Rutgers, coming off a 67-60 upset of defending national champion UConn last week, backed it up with an even more impressive win over the defending conference champions.

Pittsburgh (11-6, 0-4) never led over the game’s final 30 minutes while suffering the worst loss in 10 seasons at the Petersen Events Center. The Panthers used to be unbeatable at the Pete, but have now dropped four home games in a little over two months.
