PITTSBURGH (AP) -No. 1 and not done. Not yet anyway.
DeJuan Blair scored 23 points and cleaned up inside with 15 rebounds as Pittsburgh, playing its first game as the nation's top-ranked hoop team, pulled away in the second half for a 90-67 win on Sunday over St. John's, one of the few Big East Conference members not among the Top 25.
Leading by just five points at halftime, Pitt (15-0, 3-0 Big East) clamped down on defense and found its shooting range, knocking down three 3-pointers in a 17-6 spurt in the first seven minutes of the second half. By the time Blair was taken out with 8:47 left, the Panthers were up by 23 and putting on a show.
Jermaine Dixon added 17 points and Levance Fields had 13 points and nine assists for Pitt.
