Pitt Downs UConn…Again

Earlier today, the Pittsburgh Panthers defeated the top team in the country, UConn, in a game that may have cost the Huskies the Big East Conference title.

UConn has led the way in the Big East for the past few weeks, but this loss gives Louisville the chance to win the conference outright when they play West Virginia later today.

Sam Young was the story of the day, as he scored 31 points, which helped to propel the Panthers to a 70-60 victory over the Huskies.

This is the second time this season that Pitt has defeated UConn and it is a match up that Pittsburgh’s Sam Young loves. “Every time I see those UConn jerseys, my eyes light up,” said Young.

The Big East tournament begins next week and UConn and Pitt will make up two of the four top seeds.

Here are the highlights of the game:
