Pitt gets UNC-Asheville in opener

 Pitt learned its opening opponent after UNC-Asheville defeated Arkansas-Little Rock, 81-77, in overtime in a play-in game at Dayton, Ohio, tonight.

No. 16 seed UNC-Asheville (20-13) trailed by as many as 11 points in the first half but the Big South champion forced overtime with a 3-pointer from top scorer Matt Dickey and held UALR  (19-17) to one field goal over the final 11 minutes.

“It feels good to go on to the second round,” Dickey said after the game.

Pitt (27-5), the No. 1 seed in the Southeast Region, will play UNC-Asheville at 3:10 p.m. on Thursday at Verizon Center in Washington, D.C.
