PITTSBURGH (AP) Talib Zanna scored a career-high 20 points and Pittsburgh had little trouble in an 80-48 win over Mount St. Mary's on Friday night.
Tray Woodall added 14 points and six assists for the Panthers, who improved to 10-0 in season openers under coach Jamie Dixon. Highly touted freshman center Steven Adams had eight points, eight rebounds and four blocks in 26 minutes for Pitt.
The Panthers set a school record by shooting 70 percent (34 of 48) from the field.
Xavier Owens led the Mountaineers with 15 points and Rashad Whack added 11 but Mount St. Mary's couldn't keep up with the bigger, deeper Panthers.
Pitt outscored Mount St. Mary's 58-14 in the paint and shut Mount St. Mary's down following a slow start. The Panthers broke it open with a 12-0 run to start the second half.
WASHINGTON -- The Washington Nationals say they have agreed to a one-year deal with 40-year-old reliever Joaquin Benoit.
The team announced the move Wednesday, along with placing pitcher Joe Ross on the 60-day disabled list as he recovers from Tommy John surgery in July.
The Nationals didn't release terms of the agreement, though a person with knowledge of the deal told The Associated Press on Monday that it was for $1 million.
The person spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because the deal wasn't official at the time.
