Buffaloes struggle in first half against Pitt

The first half didn't start well Thursday for the Colorado men in their NCAA Tournament, and it didn't improve much by halftime against ninth-seeded Pittsburgh.

The eighth-seeded Buffaloes trailed 46-18 at the break, this after getting down 13-0 to start the game.

It was their lowest first-half output of the season, which previously was 22 in the season-opener against Baylor.

CU's first basket was Wesley Gordon's 3-pointer with 14:19 left in the first half to pull within 13-3.

On the first eight possessions, CU had four turnovers and missed four shots. Colorado ended the first half 5-of-17 from the field including 1-of-7 on 3-pointers. Colorado had nine turnovers in the first half.

The Panthers increased the lead to 36-11 with 5 minutes left in the half.

Pitt, which was 18-of-29 from the field, was lead by Talib Zanna with 16 points. Pitt had eight steals and just one turnover.
