Seton Hall Basketball Falls to No. 23 Pitt
Lamar Patterson scored 11 points and No. 23 Pittsburgh pulled away late for a 56-46 victory over Seton Hall on Monday night.
Freshman center Steven Adams added eight points, 15 rebounds and two blocks for the Panthers (19-5, 7-4 Big East), who won for the sixth time in their last seven games by simply surviving on a night they struggled to get into any sort of rhythm.
Cameron Wright scored six of his eight points during a game-ending 18-8 surge that prevented Pitt from suffering a letdown following an emotional win over Syracuse on Saturday.
Fuquan Edwin led the Pirates (13-10, 2-8) with 23 points but was slowed after injuring his right ankle midway through the second half. Seton Hall shot just 33 percent (14 of 42) from the field and made just two baskets over the final 10 minutes.
