Freshman J.J. Moore came off the bench to score 19 points and Brad Wanamaker added 17 as five Pitt players reached double figures in a 95-49 victory over North Florida  today at Petersen Events Center.

Talib Zanna had 13 points and nine rebounds, and Ashton Gibbs (12) and Travon Woodall (10) also scored in double figures for the Panthers (3-0).

Andres Diaz scored 14 points to lead North Florida (0-2), coached by Pittsburgh native and Slippery Rock graduate Matt Driscoll.

It was Pitt’s 50th consecutive victory – and 99th in its past 100 games – against a non-conference opponent at the Pete.

The Panthers (3-0), who never trailed, recorded their second lopsided victory in four days, this one coming after a 97-54 victory over Illinois-Chicago.

Pitt used a 13-2 first-half run to take an 18-6 lead on Woodall’s 3-pointer with 12 minutes to play in the first half. North Florida, which played at Florida State on Friday night during a grueling two-game-in-22-hour stretch, trailed by double figures the rest of the way. Pitt led 48-21 at halftime.

Wanamaker added six rebounds and four steals, and Dante Taylor had seven points, 11 rebounds and three blocked shots. Pitt outrebounded North Florida, 56-24, and had 31 offensive boards.

    Anybody else think Gilbert Brown should take a place on the bench until he can consistanly hit any shot outside of 6 feet? Why Jamie lets him continue to shoot that low percentage outside shot of his is beyond me. Great athlete with little to “NO” outside touch. I would start J.J. Moore in a New York minute before I would start Brown.
