Things are looking up for the Pittsburgh Panthers after another impressive win. Pitt knocked off No. 20 Miami 71-68 at home on Saturday. It was Pitt’s first home sellout since 2019 when No. 1 Duke and Zion Williamson were visiting.

The Panthers closed out the game on an 11-0 run in the final 2:03 to defeat the Hurricanes. It was a 5-point Miami lead at the half (33-28), but UM led by as much as 11 in the second half. At the 1-minute mark, it was 68-67 Miami, which would be the Canes’ last lead of the game.

Pitt’s Blake Hinson led all scorers with 21 points on 8-of-18 shooting from the field. Jamarius Burton added 19 points.

The Panthers have now won 4 of their last 5 games, improving to 15-7. People are starting to talk about Pitt as a potential NCAA Tournament team.
