Pitt had its home opener against Montana and lost in overtime, 83-78.
That the game even went to overtime was a break for Pitt. The Panthers trailed by two and Montana had the ball, bringing it up the court. A momentary lapse caused them to receive a ten-second violation and Pitt subsequently tied it to send it to overtime.
This was a really back and forth game. I don’t know how many lead changes there were but the amount of times I thought Pitt would win or less changed quite a lot. For Pitt, the trio of Jared Wilson-Frame, Ryan Luther, and Shamiel Stevenson led the way with a combined 47 points (Stevenson led the way with 18). Luther also hauled in nine rebounds, leading the team.
Pitt’s offense (well, its scoring, anyway) has been salvageable. The biggest problem tonight? Turnovers and rebounding. Pitt had 19 turnovers and were outrebounded, 36-34.
