Tray Woodall leads with 14, followed by freshman Steven Adams with 13 and Talib Zanna with 11. It was Zanna's first game in double-figures since January 8.

Cincinnati -- Tray Woodall scored 14 points and led a late surge that sent No. 23 Pittsburgh to a 62-52 victory over No. 17 Cincinnati on Saturday, keeping the momentum going for one of the Big East's hottest teams.

The Panthers (20-5, 8-4) have won seven of their last eight games overall and four of their past five on the road. They beat No. 6 Syracuse 65-55 a week ago, vaulting them into the Top 25.

Woodall hit a pair of free throws and a 3-pointer during a 7-0 run that put Pitt ahead to stay with 3:21 left. The conference's stingiest defense held Cincinnati (18-6, 6-5) without a field goal over the final 9:21, allowing seven free throws.

Sean Kilpatrick led Cincinnati with 16 points, but had only one free throw in the second half. Kilpatrick came into the game averaging 18.3 points, third-best in the Big East.
