Robertson leads USF past Pittsburgh, 63-51
TAMPA -- Senior guard Hugh Robertson had a season-high 18 points and led a strong defensive effort as USF bounced back nicely with a 63-51 win against Pittsburgh on Wednesday night at Tampa Bay Times Forum.
Robertson held Pitt guard Ashton Gibbs in check -- and scoreless until midway through the second half -- and the Bulls improved to 14-10 and 7-4 in Big East play, ending Pittsburgh's four-game winning streak. Robertson didn't miss a shot all night, going 7-for-7 from the field and 4-for-4 on free-throw attempts.
Freshman point guard Anthony Collins had four straight points for the Bulls after Pitt had cut a 14-point lead to eight points with less than three minutes left. Collins finished with 11 points and six assists, holding his own against Pitt's Tray Woodall, who had 11 points and two assists.
