Pitt dominates the Huskies, 70-60

Pitt becomes the seventh school to beat a top-ranked team twice in a season, with the last one being North Carolina over Duke twice in 1998.

Pitt beat UCONN twice in 19 days. This win was more convincing than the last one, with the Panthers dominating most of the game except for a 12-0 run that UCONN made in the second half to cut Pitt's lead to 2.

Sam Young was beyond super. No words can really describe his performace. He scored 31 points and had 10 rebounds. He took over in a game where DeJuan Blair was less than dominant.

This senior class now has 109 victories, the most in school history.

The Panthers finished 19-0 at home this season and are riding a 21 game home winning streak.

Pitt next plays the winner of the Notre Dame-Rutgers-West Virginia bracket at 7 p.m.Thursday at Madison Square Garden.

This was the largest crowd ever to experience a game at the Pete, at 12,908. Capacity is 12,508.
