NCAA BASKETBALL: Pitt women swamped
NO. 3 DUKE 111, PITTSBURGH 67: Pittsburgh protected the ball and passed it well, but making shots was a different story. The Panthers shot just 30 percent from the floor in their loss to Duke.
Pittsburgh hit 6 of 25 3-point attempts, many of which were open shots against the Blue Devils’ matchup zone defense.
“I thought they were really good looks,” Pittsburgh guard Brianna Kiesel said. “It’s just knocking them down. We struggled a little bit at Notre Dame, and we struggled again this game. But just building off that, if we get those looks, those are going to start falling for us.”
Kiesel scored 19 points to lead the Panthers (9-11, 1-5 Atlantic Coast Conference). Asia Logan added 17 points and Loliya Briggs had 12 points for Pittsburgh.
For Duke (20-1, 7-0), Tricia Liston scored 23 points and became the program’s all-time leader in career 3-pointers.
Elizabeth Williams added 20 points for the Blue Devils.
