PITTSBURGH, Nov. 22 (UPI) -- Nasir Robinson scored 17 points Tuesday, going 8-of-10 from the floor in 16th-ranked Pittsburgh's 73-69 win over La Salle.

Robinson grabbed six rebounds while Ashton Gibbs added 14 points and Travon Woodall had 12 points and 10 assists for the Panthers (3-1), who bounced back from a stunning non-conference home loss to Long Beach State.

Gibbs' foul shots with 1:17 left gave the Panthers a four-point lead and Woodall followed with a layup off a turnover for a six-point cushion with less than a minute left.

Dante Taylor also reached double figures with 11 points for Pittsburgh.

Earl Pettis pumped in 22 points and made five steals for the Explorers (2-2).
