Talking PITT: Big East Basketball Champions

Pitt beats Georgetown to win Big East title
Saturday, March 15, 2008
By Jim O'Connell, Associated Press

NEW YORK -- Ronald Ramon scored 17 points and Pitt won its second Big East tournament championship in its eighth title game appearance with a 74-65 victory over top-seeded and ninth-ranked Georgetown tonight.

The seventh-seeded Panthers (26-9) shed their runner-up tag with a performance just like those in all the other championship games: a blue-collar effort without a star player.

Roy Hibbert had 17 points for the Hoyas (27-5), who were trying to sweep the regular-season and tournament titles for a second straight season.
