Cameron Wright scored a career-high 20 points and Pittsburgh pulled away in the second half for a 84-67 victory over Duquesne in the City Game on Saturday afternoon.

Wright added five assists and five rebounds in 36 minutes for the Panthers (7-0). Talib Zanna had 13 points and six rebounds and Lamar Patterson chipped in 18 points, eight rebounds and six assists as Pitt beat its crosstown rival for the 13th straight time.

Ovie Soko led Duquesne (2-3) with 17 points but the Dukes couldn't keep pace over the final 15 minutes. Pitt put together a 15-1 run early in the second half to break it open. The Dukes made 9 of 18 3-pointers but shot just 18 of 35 (51 percent) from the free throw line.

The result was a competitive game but one with a familiar outcome.
