Sophomore Blair has 20 points, 16 rebounds in first half for No. 6 Pitt
PITTSBURGH -- DeJuan Blair made such an impact last season that he was chosen as the Big East co-rookie of the year. A warning to the rest of the conference: The early consensus among opposing coaches is he is much better as a sophomore.Blair missed only one shot while scoring 27 points and getting 18 rebounds, and No. 6 Pittsburgh scored the first 20 points before easing to an 86-60 victory over NCAA Division II opponent Indiana, Pa., on Saturday.
• DeJuan Blair was 13-for-14 from the floor and scored a career-high 27 points to lead the Panthers to their 32nd straight home win vs. a non-conference opponent.
• Pittsburgh coach Jamie Dixon is now a perfect 28-0 in the month of November.
• This was Indiana (Pa.)'s first game vs. a Division I team since playing Duquesne in the 1991-92 season.
