ATLANTA (AP) - Talib Zanna scored 22 points, James Robinson added 16 and No. 22 Pittsburgh pulled away in the second half, remaining perfect in the Atlantic Coast Conference with an 81-74 victory over Georgia Tech on Tuesday night.

The Panthers (16-1, 4-0) trailed 35-32 at halftime but quickly seized control after the break for their sixth straight win. Georgia Tech (10-7, 1-3) called a couple of quick timeouts, trying to stem the onslaught, but the Yellow Jackets were overpowered in the lane and couldn't prevent another victory by the conference newcomer.

Giving Pitt a bit of a scare in the final minute, Georgia Tech got as close as 78-74 before the Panthers sealed it at the free throw line. It was their closest victory of the season, the first 15 coming by an average of 17.8 points.

Trae Golden led Georgia Tech with 22 points.
