PITTSBURGH (AP) J.J. Moore had five of his team-high 16 points in overtime, and Pittsburgh set a school record for largest halftime deficit overcome with a 72-62 victory over Oakland on Saturday night.
The Panthers (4-0) trailed by 14 at the half and by as many as 18 in the second half, the third-largest deficit they've come back from at any point in a game for a win. Pitt went on a 7-0 run over regulation's final 59 seconds to force overtime.
Pitt dominated the extra session, scoring 11 of the first 13 points in overtime, including a James Robinson jumper that survived a video review to be sure it beat the shot clock.
The Panthers improved to 95-3 against nonconference opponents in the 10-year history of the Petersen Events Center.
Corey Petros had 19 points for the Golden Grizzlies (1-3), who have never beaten a Big East opponent.
