Sam Young had 17 points and started numerous fastbreaks with his 12 rebounds to lead No. 19 Pittsburgh to a 78-45 victory over Mississippi Valley State.

Pitt closed out the Hispanic College Fund Challenge portion of its schedule with its fourth consecutive homecourt victory, all by margins of at least 11 points.

Young is coming off an up-and-down sophomore season in which he averaged only seven points. He had a strong game despite playing little more than a half as coach Jamie Dixon emptied his bench early while Pitt was opening a 19-5 lead.

Mississippi Valley State was led by Stanford Speech's 10 points.
