Big ups to YouTube user WVUgames, who made this video possible for all of us. I give him respect as an internet person, all though I would have to suspect that he is a WVU fan, so I kind of don’t like him at all.
From the AP:
Kevin Pittsnogle is so unaccustomed to starting that he had to temporarily leave West Virginia’s game early on against Pittsburgh (No. 15 ESPN/USA Today; No. 16 AP) to catch his breath.
When he returned, he gave Pitt lots of problems.
Pittsnogle scored eight of his career-high 27 points in overtime to lead West Virginia to an 83-78 win over Pittsburgh on Saturday night. The 6-foot-11 Pittsnogle, starting for just the second time this season, was averaging 8 points a game. He got the start because center D’or Fischer did not play due to illness.
“When I got my second wind pretty fast, I was ready to go,” said Pittsnogle, whose previous high was 26 points in 2003. “My performance wasn’t enough to write me in the history book, but beating Pitt makes it a lot better.”
West Virginia (13-7, 3-6 Big East) broke a five-game losing streak to their rival 70 miles to the north.
Pittsnogle converted a three-point play and a 3-pointer a minute apart to give the Mountaineers their biggest lead, 73-66, with 2:08 left in overtime.
“Pittsnogle is a hard matchup for us and when he’s shooting the ball from [outside], it becomes very difficult to guard for our bigger guys,” said Pitt coach Jamie Dixon. “Sometimes guys step up in the absence of other guys, and that’s exactly what he did.”
