Panthers Down Rutgers 76-68

Rutgers R.small
No. 9 Pittsburgh proved too much for the Scarlet Knight tonight despite Quincy Douby's 27 points. The Panthers enoyed a balanced attack with five players in double figures lead by Aaron Grays 20 points.

Rutgers played Pittsburgh tight in the first half and took a one point lead with less than ten seconds left when Douby sank a three-point shot from well beyond the arc. The Panthers crept ahead early in the second half and, when Douby had to sit after being tagged with his third and fourth fouls in less than a minute halfway through, opened a ten point lead with only a few minutes to go.

The rest of the story and game stats are available here.

Pittsburgh remains undefeated at 15-0, 4-0 in the Big East.
Rutgers drops to 12-5, 2-2 in the Big East.

The Scarlet Knights are back in action on Sunday, January 22, when they travel to Cincinnati to take on the Bearcats.
