Jeff Capel’s Pitt Panthers led wire to wire en route to a lopsided victory over Jacksonville on Friday night at the Petersen Events Center, 107-56.

Ishmael Leggett and Blake Hinson combined for the first ten points of the game, as Pitt got out to an early double-digit lead. The Panthers never looked back, leading by as many as 52 points over the Dolphins and cruising their way to a 4-0 start to the season.

Once Jacksonville finally got on the board, the Panthers kept their foot on the gas, going on another double-digit streak and scoring the next 11 points to jump out to a 24-5 lead in the first 11 minutes of the game. The Dolphins hit just one shot out of their first 15 attempts as Pitt caught fire from the field.
