NEW YORK -- The Pittsburgh Panthers made things interesting for the Orange on Thursday afternoon, getting within one point in the final minute of the BIG EAST Quarterfinals. The Cuse pulled out the win in dramatic fashion, downing the Panthers xxxxx to advance.
It was a strong first half for SU, with James Southerland hitting 5-5 from beyond the arc and finishing the frame with 17 points. The Orange took a 40-27 lead into halftime. The Pathers made adjustments and held Southerland to just three in the second half. As a team, the Cuse hit a season-high 12 three pointers.
CJ Fair, Michael Carter-Williams and Brandon Triche also scored in double figures for SU.
The Orange will face top-seeded Georgetown Friday night at 7 PM in hopes of getting their first win against a Hoya team that has already beaten them twice this season.
