PITTSBURGH (AP) - Eli Carter scored 14 points, Dane Miller added 11 points and 12 rebounds to lead Rutgers over Pittsburgh 62-39.
The Scarlet Knights (10-7, 2-2 Big East) held the Panthers to 21 percent shooting (12 of 57).
Rutgers, coming off a 67-60 upset of defending national champion UConn last week, backed it up with an even more impressive win over the defending conference champions.
Pittsburgh (11-6, 0-4) never led over the game's final 30 minutes.
Ashton Gibbs finished with eight points on 2-of-11 shooting. He missed all seven of his 3-point attempts and turned it over three times, all of them coming in the opening minutes.
The Scarlet Knights outrebounded the Panthers 51-35, outscored them in the paint 23-14 and blocked six shots while forcing 15 turnovers.
JJ Moore led Pitt with 10 points and Nasir Robinson had seven points and nine boards.
