Pitt faced its stiffest competition on Wednesday vs. the Dart Killester Club Team. The Panthers won the game 88-62, but only led by nine points heading into both the third and fourth quarters. At one point, Pitt was only up 47-41. Pitt also trailed early, 14-9 - its largest deficit of the trip.
Dante Taylor had his best game of the trip with 14 points and 10 rebounds. Gilbert Brown also added 14. Balance was again the story as nine players ended up with at least six points.
The big difference in these games have been rebounding. For the second straight game, Pitt doubled up its opponent on the boards, 50-25. Unless a team is shooting lights out from the field, it's virtually impossible to stay competitive when getting killed on the glass like that.
Pitt's next game will be against the Melbourne (yes, Melbourne of Australia) on Friday.
