The trio of three players with double-doubles in a single game is a first for Pitt since Feb. 28, 2005. Danielle Taylor (20 points, 10 rebounds), Jennifer Brown (14 points, 12 rebounds), and Cheron Taylor achieved the feat in an 80-43 win at Providence on Feb. 28, 2005. Much like tonight’s game, a fourth player also had a double figure scoring.
The margin of victory was the largest for a Pitt team since an 86-51 win (+35) over Valparaiso on Dec. 11, 2010.
The Panthers led by as many as 37 points in the contest, the largest a Pitt team has been up in a game since Dec. 4, 2010. Pitt had a 39-point lead against Mount St. Mary’s, before posting the 66-30 final tally.
Junior Brianna Kiesel had 17 points and tied a season-high with 11 rebounds. She has recorded double-figures in every contest this season (6 games) and in 50 games now over her career.
Freshman Fred Potvin scored 16 points, shooting 5-of-9 from 3-point range. Both are season/career-highs for the first-year player. It marks the most points for a Pitt freshman since the 2011-12 season. Then freshman Brianna Kiesel had 17 points in her second game as a Panther and would score a season-high of 26 points.
Potvin is averaging 13.0 points over the past two games for the Panthers and shooting 46.7 percent from 3-point range.
Potvin drained five 3-pointers in the game, the most by a Pitt player in two seasons. Abby Dowd knocked down a program record seven 3-pointers on Jan. 14, 2012 at DePaul (tied the record).
Ashlee Anderson posted her first career double-double with the 13 points and 10 rebounds. The 10 rebounds marked a career high for the fifth-year player. She also added four assists to her stat line.
Senior Asia Logan picked up her 11th career double-double and the third of the season with 12 points and 10 rebounds. She shot 5-of-8 from the field and is a combined 55.6 percent over the past two games (both wins) for the Panthers.
Junior Cora McManus added nine points for the Panthers, a season-high.
Mount St. Mary’s went 15-of-60 from the field for a 25 percent shooting effort, the lowest for a Pitt opponent since the 2010-11 season. That opponent in 2010 was Mount St. Mary’s, which shot 22 percent (11-of-50) in a 66-30 loss on Dec. 4, 2010.
Pitt held Mount St. Mary’s to just 14 first-half points, the fewest points by a Pitt opponent in a half since the 2010-11 season. Mount recorded 12 second-half points on the aforementioned Dec. 4 contest.
The Panthers had 18 assists in the contest, tying the most this season.
Pitt out-rebounded the Mount, 51-44 - the first time the Panthers have won the battle of the boards in a game this season (6 contests). The 51 caroms are the most in a regulation game for Pitt since last season against Brown (Nov. 24, 2012); Pitt had 54 rebounds in that contest.
