PITTSBURGH (Ticker) -- Chevon Troutman led a balanced attack with 17 points as No. 15 Pittsburgh coasted to a 93-57 victory over Loyola of Maryland.
Troutman, who is shooting 71 percent (17-of-24) from the floor this season, scored the game's first five points and nine in the Panthers' 17-5 run to open the contest.
"I hope people here in Pittsburgh appreciate Chevy Troutman," Loyola coach Jimmy Patos said. "There aren't a lot of players like him in the country. He's a silent killer, a mismatch problem. He's going to give a lot of teams problems this season."
The victory extended Pittsburgh's home winning streak against non-conference opponents to 43 games.
Chris Taft and Antonio Graves each scored 12 points for the Panthers (3-0), who extended their lead to 47-20 on a jumper by Carl Krauser in the final minute of the first half.
"I thought our kids came out and did a great job from the start," Pittsburgh coach Jamie Dixon said. "We passed very well and took the right opportunities to take the shot."
The Panthers never led by less than 21 points in the second half and put the finishing touches on their third straight rout to open the season with a 13-0 spurt in the final minutes.
Krauser matched a career high with nine assists in just 24 minutes.
"I tell my guys that if they run the floor, I'm going to get them the ball," Krauser said. "I want to reward them and recognize their efforts when they run."
The Panthers outscored the Greyhounds on the fast break, 24-14.
"I'm very happy with the passing and the 25 assists," Dixon said.
Freddie Stanback, Shane James and Charlie Bell each scored 12 points for Loyola (0-3), which was outrebounded, 53-25.
Patos' squad, which finished 1-27 last season, had little chance in this one, but impressed the coach nonetheless.
"Our kids fought hard," Patos said. "We'll get better, though. I'm starting three freshmen and two walk-ons. We'll get better, I'm telling you."
