Pitt and New Hampshire set record for fewest points in half


Recommended Posts

PITTSBURGH (AP) - Ashton Gibbs scored 23 points and slow-starting Pittsburgh held New Hampshire to seven points during a first half in which both teams shot terribly before pulling away for a 47-32 on Friday night.

The tired Panthers (7-1), playing two nights after a two-overtime victory over city rival Duquesne, led only 15-7 at halftime. The 22 combined points were the fewest in a first half of a Division I game since the shot clock era began in 1985.

They broke the previous record held by Mississippi State and South Carolina, which combined for 28 points on Jan. 8, 2003.

Gibbs missed his first four shots after going 3-for-15 against Duquesne, but made his next seven, the only hot shooting by either team. Pitt shot 40.5 percent - 26.3 percent in the first half - and the Wildcats (2-3) shot 23.5 percent (12 of 51).

New Hampshire shot 12 percent (3 of 25) in the first half.

Needless to say this isnt the Pitt team of recent years
