PITTSBURGH (AP) - Tray Woodall scored 14 points and No. 23 Pittsburgh pulled away in the second half, beating South Florida 64-44 on Wednesday night to hand the struggling Bulls their 10th consecutive loss.
Dante Taylor had 12 points and 10 rebounds for the Panthers (22-7, 10-6 Big East), who have won nine of 12. They remained in the middle of the race for a double-bye in next month's conference tournament.
J.J. Moore added nine points, and 10 players scored in all for the balanced Panthers, who were trailing when they began a 16-0 run with Lamar Patterson's jumper 4:42 into the second half.
The Big East's leader in scoring defense, Pitt held South Florida (10-17, 1-14) to 31.9 percent shooting. The conference's worst scoring offense was held to 50 points or fewer for the eighth time in 15 Big East games. The Panthers have allowed 50 or fewer 10 times this season.
