PITT 75 – FSU 62

Getting excited about Pitt hoops has become a thing again and it’s all about the guard play. Trey McGowens had 30 points and 7 rebounds, while Xavier Johnson had 18 points to lead Pitt (12-5) to a 75-62 win over No. 11 Florida State (13-4). With a downhill attack against a bigger FSU lineup, the likes of McGowens, Johnson were relentless in getting to the rim and the foul line. McGowens went 18-of-19 from the line. A great hire of a coach who is built to coach today‚Äôs player, combined with key difference makers at PG/SG has an inexperienced group looking like a potential tourney team.
