Eastern Kentucky falls to Pittsburgh 70-61

PITTSBURGH (AP) - Ashton Gibbs scored 20 points and Pittsburgh
began pulling away by holding Eastern Kentucky scoreless for more
than eight minutes during a 71-60 victory on Thursday night, the
Panthers' 24th in a row at home.
Gibbs, who scored 22 against Binghamton on Tuesday, had seven
points during a 13-0 run that began with 6:57 remaining in the
first half and ended with Pitt leading 41-24.
The Panthers (3-0) rarely allowed the Colonels (1-1) more than
one shot on a possession, doubling them in rebounds most of the
game before finishing with a 47-25 advantage.
Justin Stommes scored 24 for Eastern Kentucky, which played its
first game against a major college opponent this season.
Pitt has won 41 in a row on its home court against
non-conference opponents, two off the school record.
