No. 23 Pittsburgh vs. Villanova final score: Panthers come from behind to win in overtime

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sport

Talib Zanna scored seven straight points in overtime and grabbed 19 rebounds as the Pittsburgh Panthers came from behind to beat the Villanova Wildcats in overtime.

The Pittsburgh Panthers didn't hold a lead in the second half against the Villanova Wildcats but came from behind to force overtime before outscoring Villanova by nine points to capture a 73-64 home victory on Sunday.

Pitt's James Robinson hit a three-pointer off of a Tray Woodall assist to tie the game at 57 with 34 seconds to play, and neither team scored again as the game went into overtime.

Talib Zanna scored seven straight points to give the No. 23 Panthers a 64-57 lead two minutes into overtime, and they held off Villanova, which got the game within two points with a minute left in the extra period but could never reclaim the lead.

The 6'9 Zanna finished with 14 points, 19 rebounds and two blocks. Woodall added 13 points and 11 assists, and Robinson finished with a team-high 14 points, including his crucial bucket that led to overtime.

Ryan Arcidiacono led the Wildcats, scoring the majority of his points 23 points by hitting 5-of-8 from three-point range. Big men Mouphtaou Yarou and JayVaughn Pinkston added 14 and 13 points, respectively for Villanova, and Pinkston also contributed four blocks.

Villanova went into halftime with a 28-25 lead and built a 35-26 advantage just more than three minutes into the second half, but Pitt chipped away at the deficit and tied it at 43 points with 10 minutes left in the game.
