PITTSBURGH (AP) -Sam Young scored 23 points and DeJuan Blair was in control inside with 14 points and 17 rebounds, helping No. 3 Pittsburgh overcome a sluggish start to defeat city rival Duquesne 78-51 on Wednesday night.
Jermaine Dixon added 12 points as the Panthers improved to 8-0 for the seventh consecutive season, using runs of 9-0 and 11-2 to begin pulling away after the Dukes (4-2) led 20-19 with seven minutes left in the first half.
Duquesne, one of the nation's youngest teams with eight freshmen and one of the smallest in a major conference with only one regular taller than 6-foot-5, has lost successive games to current top 5 teams. Duquesne lost 95-72 to now-No. 4 Duke on Friday, when the Blue Devils were No. 7.
