PITTSBURGH (AP) Justin Champagnie's play left no doubt. Neither did his words.
Minutes after the Pittsburgh sophomore forward scored the last of his 31 points and grabbed the final of his 14 rebounds in a 79-73 victory over Duke inside a largely empty Petersen Events Center on Tuesday night, Champagnie provided little room for interpretation on the significance.
"It means Pitt is back," Champagnie said. "I think that we are going to continue to keep this up, and try our best and work hard and just take everything that that's not given to us."
