Pitt runs away from Texas Tech, 76-53

NEW YORK (AP) - Lamar Patterson scored a career-high 23 points and Pittsburgh took command in the first half on the way to a 76-53 victory over Texas Tech on Monday night in the semifinals of the Progressive Legends Classic.

The Panthers (5-0), who led 41-18 at halftime, will play the winner of the Stanford-Houston game on Tuesday night at Barclays Center.

Cameron Wright added 12 points for Pittsburgh, which had a 36-10 record at Madison Square Garden, the arena across the river, since 2000-01 as a member of the Big East. The Panthers are in their first season in the Atlantic Coast Conference.

Jaye Crockett had 19 points for the Red Raiders (4-2), who are playing their first season under coach Tubby Smith.

This was the second straight game Pitt put an opponent away early. The Panthers took off to a 47-23 halftime lead over Lehigh last week on the way to a 77-58 victory.
