PISCATAWAY, N.J. – Rutgers completed its biggest comeback of the season when a contested layup for Kadeem Jack created a 74-73 victory over South Florida. Erasing a 15-point deficit in the second half, the Scarlet Knights got 20 points from both Jack and guard J.J. Moore.
Memphis coach Josh Pastner knows his team can't afford to sulk for too long after having its win streak snapped, especially with a Top 25 team visiting this weekend.
The 24th-ranked Tigers will get a chance to face one of the American Athletic Conference's worst defensive squads before that matchup, but Rutgers has been better offensively heading into Tuesday night's...

In case you missed it, Pitt's basketball season got underway on Friday with an 88-55 beatdown over Savannah State.
The good news? It was a comfortable win for a basketball team in a great deal of transition. I've mentioned this before but this is a very different team than last year. Steven Adams, Tray Woodall, J.J. Moore, Dante Taylor, four guys that played big minutes last...
Our ACC Basketball previews continue with one of our newcomers, the Pittsburgh Panthers.
Note: Our preview below is missing a few of the preview features since Pittsburgh is new to the league.

Rumors swirled about a month ago over a potential J.J. Moore transfer. All was quiet for a while until head coach Jamie Dixon mentioned he was helping Moore find a new home a couple of weeks ago.
Now, Moore's destination is known - he's heading to Rutgers. He apparently also considered Iona and Quinnipiac.
Moore will have to sit out a season, but as is the case most of the...
It’s been one interesting off-season for the Pittsburgh Panthers. Players leaving early for the NBA, players heading elsewhere, transfers coming in, transfers coming in and then maybe changing their minds, other transfers being blocked, every day there is something new in the news. The fact is, over half of Pittsburgh’s roster will consist of players who have never stepped on...
Dammit, I’m going to shoe-horn in the bad puns while I still can.
The formality that was supposed to be DeAndre Kane’s transfer to Pitt for as a graduate transfer, now is not.
However, the 6-foot-4 guard, a Pittsburgh native, did not wind up pulling the trigger, whether it was due to the fact that Panthers coach Jamie Dixon was non-committal about taking him at the time, or whether...
Pitt has had a whirlwind offseason to say the least. The surprising departure of Steven Adams set the Panthers back in the post. Now with Trey Zeigler and potentially even JJ Moore gone, they seem a bit thin on the wings as well. It is rumored that DeAndre Kane is leaning towards coming back home to play for Pitt, but that has not been solidified yet. Enter: Trevor Lacey.
As if this month weren't tumultuous enough (what, with the Trey Zeigler transfer, Steven Adams' announcement of leaving for the NBA, and losing out on recruit Jon Severe and transfer Eli Carter), the offseason just got a little more difficult with news that forward J.J. Moore may be transferring out of the program.
First things first - as of now this doesn't appear to...
It’s been a long wait for Jamel Artis. The rumors of his commitment to Pitt have been happening since July. And again, last month. Well, finally it has happened. Artis was able to verbal to Pitt on Friday.
Pitt has long been the favorite school of Jamel Artis. He was just waiting for the right time to pick the Panthers, and that came during his official visit Friday to the Oakland...
J.J. Moore scored 21 points off the bench and No. 20 Pittsburgh shot a school-record 72 percent to beat DePaul 81-66 on Saturday in the Panthers' last Big East regular-season game.
The next stop for surging Pittsburgh is its final Big East tournament, which begins Tuesday at Madison Square Garden in New York. The Panthers (24-7, 12-6), who will move into the Atlantic Coast Conference...

J.J. Moore comes off the bench with 21 points, Tray Woodall adds 18 points as Panthers close regular season with four wins in a row. Panthers set school-record, shooting 72 percent from the field.
Oh, god. It’s the end of conference play. Big East Tourney — for the final time — looms. Then seeding and the actual NCAA Tournament. Spring practice for football starts on Tuesday. The kids start going a little crazier as Spring Break gets closer. Traveling at the end of the month. Add in doubling the off-line workload. I’ve already got a pile of links and less and less...
Struggling mightily on offense against what should have been an overmatched opponent, No. 23 Pittsburgh was finally turned loose.
For the first time in years, players said, coach Jamie Dixon allowed them to ''freelance.''
The result was a big second half and a 20-point win.
Tray Woodall scored 14 points and Pitt beat South Florida 64-44 on Wednesday night to hand...

Any chance of that? Please?
Pitt has come to call Madison Square Garden its home away from home. It’s not something St. John’s probably likes to hear, but the Panthers have enjoyed a lot of success on the home court of the Red Storm over the years.
“We like to think that way,” Dixon said. “It’s St. John’s home court. It is different. I don’t know if you call it a...
I guess it worked out that I didn’t get a chance to do a recap of the loss to Marquette. It would have been completely wrong and looked pollyanaish in the cruel light of the Notre Dame debacle. I would have called it just one of those games. Marquette was hot. Even Marquette’s own coach said that they played their best game of the season. They were at home. There’s a reason...
