DeJuan Blair had 32 points and 14 rebounds (9 offensive) as Pitt routed DePaul in Chicago 92-69.
Pitt had another sluggish start, but really left no doubt after going on a 13-0 run to close the half. What can you say - DePaul is just one of those not-so-good teams that has yet to win a game in conference. There didn't seem to be much in doubt for me...not even when Pitt got behind by 5 or 6 in the first half and really didn't seem to be playing very hard.
Fields got his assist/turnover ratio back on track with a career-high 16 assists and only one turnover. He also scored 13 and Young chipped in with 10.
Next up for Pitt are home dates this week with West Virginia and Cincinnati. Pitt should move up to #4 in both polls tomorrow and losses by UNC (who plays at Duke) and Oklahoma (not likely as they only play Baylor and Texas Tech) could set up a potential 1 Vs. 2 matchup.
