MORGANTOWN, W.Va. -- Tray Woodall scored a game-high 24 points and Pittsburgh won its third straight Big East game with a 72-66 defeat of West Virginia on Monday night.

While the Panthers improved to 14-9, 3-7, West Virginia dropped to 15-8, 5-5 with the Mountaineers' third straight loss in the Big East.

Ashton Gibbs added 15 points for the Panthers.

West Virginia freshman forward Kevin Noreen broke his ankle near the 12-minute mark of the first half, West Virginia MetroNews reported.

A layup by Nasir Robinson and a 3-pointer by Woodall in the final minute of the first half gave Pittsburgh a 33-29 halftime lead.
