Pittsburgh, PA (SportsNetwork.com) - Talib Zanna registered a double-double with 23 points and 14 rebounds as the Pittsburgh Panthers posted a 77-58 win over the Lehigh Mountain Hawks as part of the Legends Classic at the Petersen Events Center.

Also scoring in double figures were Lamar Patterson and Durand Johnson with 17 and 15 points, respectively. James Robinson scored just two points on 1-of-4 shooting, but made up for it with 11 assists.
