STATE COLLEGE, Pennsylvania (Ticker) -- The intra-state rivalry went according to form.
Donatas Zavackas scored a career-high 20 points, including three 3-pointers in the first 6:10 of the second half, to lead fourth-ranked Pittsburgh to an 82-60 victory over winless Penn State.
It was the first road game of the season for Pittsburgh (5-0), which built an 11-point halftime advantage, increased it to 17 after Zavackas' third 3-pointer of the second half and led by as many as 25 in the closing minutes.
A senior forward from Lithuania, Zavackas converted 6-of-7 shots from the field, including all four of his 3-point attempts.
Julius Page had 14 and Jaron Brown, Toree Morris and Chevon Troutman each added 10 for the Panthers.
"We have a lot of weapons," Pittsburgh coach Ben Howland said. "All the weapons we have offensively help each player."
Sharif Chambliss led Penn State (0-5) with 16 points.
Zavackas drilled a 3-pointer, converted a layup and hit a pair of free throws in the first 4:44 when Pittsburgh jumped to a 12-5 lead.
After Penn State pulled within 16-14 on a layup by Chambliss with 11:05 left, the Panthers went on an 11-4 run as Troutman converted three layups.
A 3-pointer by Brown with 1:19 remaining gave Pittsburgh a 38-27 halftime lead.
Brown, Morris and Brandin Knight each converted layups and Zavackas hit three 3-pointers in the first 6:10 of the second half as Pittsburgh increased its lead to 53-36.
"The two things that hurt us the most in the second half were turnovers and not guarding Zavackas as well as we could have," Penn State coach Jerry Dunn said.
A pair of free throws by Robert Summers pulled Penn State within 60-47, but Pittsburgh scored the next 11 points as Page had a dunk and a layup.
The Panthers led by as many as 25 on a 3-pointer by Page with 4:26 left.
