Detroit at Pitt, 7:00 pm ET – Highly-recruited Ray McCallum, Jr. went to Detroit to play for his father. Highly-recruited Trey Zeigler went to Central Michigan to play for his. Three years later, McCallum has been to the NCAA tournament and is averaging over 20 points per game, still at Detroit. After Ernie Zeigler was fired, Trey found himself at Pitt, where he’s a backup averaging just 6.3 ppg. They may not spend much time on the floor together, but their opposing fates converge in a game between two postseason contenders tonight.

Pitt 74, Detroit 61

PITTSBURGH — Talib Zanna scored 16 points and Tray Woodall added 14 as Pittsburgh rallied past Detroit 74-61 on Saturday night.

Lamar Patterson added 12 points, seven assists and five rebounds for the Panthers (7-1), who overwhelmed the Titans (2-4) in the second half.

Ray McCallum led Detroit (2-4) with 24 points but the Titans shot just 32 percent (9 of 28) in the final 20 minutes to drop their third straight.

Detroit dominated for most of the first half, leading by as much as 13, but could do little when McCallum cooled off. The junior scored just five points after halftime as Pitt extended its defense to try and knock him off rhythm.

The Panthers had no such issues. Zanna and freshman point guard James Robinson combined for 14 points during a 16-3 burst midway through the second half that helped Pitt avoid the upset.

As of the first TV timeout of the second half, the UIC Flames had missed 16 of their previous 18 shots from the field. When Northwestern took a timeout with 3:49 left to play, the Flames streak had grown to miss 28 of their previous 35 shots - and yet, when Gary Talton made a layup in the next possession, the Flames went into the TV timeout with 3:16 left to play with the score tied at 42-42.

That was thanks in large part to their defense, which held the Wildcats to 8-for-23 shooting frm the field in the same time frame, and Talton's layup was created by Northwestern's 13th turnover in that time. The Flames weren't much better than Northwestern tonight, but considering this was a road game against a perennial borderline tourney team (for what that's worth), this was a quality win for Josh Crittle and his teammates.
