PITTSBURGH (AP) - Ronald Ramon and Keith Benjamin, playing new roles because of injuries, both scored 18 points to lead Pittsburgh.
Freshman DeJuan Blair added 15 points and nine rebounds for the Panthers (15-2, 3-1 Big East), who are 4-1 since starters Levance Fields and Mike Cook were injured a game apart in late December.
Jonathan Wallace had 14 points for Georgetown (13-2, 3-1), which had won five straight overall and had beaten Pitt four of five times.
The Hoyas scored eight consecutive points to get within 47-44 but Blair's three-point play and Benjamin's drive made it 52-44.
