PITTSBURGH (AP) - Travon Woodall scored a career-high 29 points and Ashton Gibbs added 25 to lead Pittsburgh to a 79-70 win over Villanova on Sunday, its fourth straight win.
The Panthers (15-9, 4-7 Big East) led by as many as 18 in the second half, though the Wildcats (10-13, 3-8 Big East) were able to trim that lead to three on a pair of Jayvaughn Pinkston free throws with 22.3 seconds left.
Villanova, losers of three straight, couldn't get any closer.
Woodall then snared a long pass and made the layup while Ty Johnson was called for an intentional foul. Woodall hit both free throws to seal the game.
Maalik Wayns led Villanova with 18 points, with Dominic Cheek adding 13 and Mouphtaou Yarou 12. Dante Taylor added nine points for Pittsburgh.
