On Tuesday, March 12, the Pittsburgh Panthers (No. 14 seed) defeated Boston College (N0. 11 seed), 80-70, in Charlotte, North Carolina for the start of the ACC tournament, which is being held at the Spectrum Center.

Pitt’s offense started off slowly, turning the ball over on the first four possessions, but after Sidy N’dir’s spark off the bench, the Panthers went on an 11-3 run and took the first lead of the game.

They then ended the half on a 20-5 run giving them a commanding 15-point lead at half.

The momentum carried into the second half going on a 21-9 run and giving them the largest lead of the game, 27 points. Boston College tried to come back, but the lead was too much and their efforts were too late.

The freshman duo of Trey McGowens and Xavier Johnson combined for 49 points and led them to the victory. Pitt was able to neutralize the ACC’s fourth leading scorer in Ky Bowman, who averages 19.2 ppg, to only 10 points.

They will now take on Syracuse (No. 6 seed) on Wednesday, March 13 to keep their season alive. Tip off is at 9 p.m. and will be airing on ESPN2.
