Pitt stunned at home by Long Beach State

PITTSBURGH — Casper Ware had a career-high 28 points and visiting Long Beach State ran away from No. 9 Pittsburgh 86-76 Wednesday night.

"We got beat every which way," Pitt coach Jamie Dixon said.

Ashton Gibbs led the Panthers (2-1) with 20 points and Nasir Robinson added 19.

Long Beach State took a nine-point halftime lead. Pitt drew within six a few times, but each time the 49ers answered.
