No. 20 Pitt shoots 72% in win over DePaul

Posted: Updated:

ROSEMONT, Ill. (AP) - J.J. Moore scored 21 points off the bench and No. 20 Pittsburgh shot a school-record 72% to beat DePaul 81-66 on Saturday in the Panthers' last Big East regular-season game.

The next stop for surging Pittsburgh is its final Big East tournament, which begins Tuesday at Madison Square Garden in New York. The Panthers (24-7, 12-6), who will move into the Atlantic Coast Conference next season, have won 11 of their last 14 games and 6 of 8 on the road.

Moore, a junior forward, hit a career-best five 3-pointers while many of his teammates got to the rim at will against DePaul (11-20, 2-16). Twenty-2 of Pittsburgh's 46 first-half points came on either a dunk or layup.
