Pittsburgh is coming off its biggest win of the season at Maryland on Tuesday at the Big Ten/ACC Challenge. Next the Panthers will try for a 16th straight victory against city-rival Duquesne on Friday at PPG Paints Arena in The City Game.

Pittsburgh ended any hopes Maryland had of starting 8-0 for the first time since 2006-07 by shooting 67 percent while building a 21-point halftime lead en route to a 73-59 victory – the worst home defeat by Maryland since 2011. The Panthers may have caught Maryland at a good time, as the Terrapins were coming off consecutive games in New York City, an 88-82 overtime victory over Richmond on Friday and 69-68 triumph over Kansas State the next day. “We beat a very good team,” Pittsburgh coach Kevin Stallings told reporters after the Maryland win. “I know how difficult that is to come back on basically one day of preparation. You fly back, and can’t really do much on Sunday so you have one day to prepare.” The Dukes, who set a school record with eight games in November, are coming off an 81-72 home loss to UMBC on Wednesday.

Pittsburgh was a 73-59 winner in its last match on the road against Terrapins. They covered the + 4.5-point spread as underdogs.
