Everything went Pitt's way against the Sacred Heart Pioneers on Saturday as they made off with a 91-66 victory. The Panthers can attribute much of their success to guard Nelly Cummings, who shot 6-for-12 from downtown and finished with 24 points, five dimes and six boards, and center Federiko Federiko, who posted a double-double on 17 points and 14 rebounds along with three blocks.
Meanwhile, North Florida was totally in charge on Saturday, breezing past the Bethune-Cookman Wildcats 88-48 at home.
Pitt is the favorite in this one, with an expected 13.5-point margin of victory. They are currently six-for-six against the spread in their most recent games, a trend bettors might want to take into account.
Their wins bumped Pitt to 7-4 and North Florida to 3-6. After both teams made easy work of their previous opponents, one of them is set up to suffer a discouraging change of fortune.
