Blair has a double-double, Fields shows no ill effects of foot injury for Panthers
PITTSBURGH -- Levance Fields waited 11 months to feel this good again. The point guard wasn't about to miss another practice or another game, even though there was no urgent need for him to be in Pittsburgh's opening-night lineup.
• Levance Fields returned to the Pittsburgh lineup. The Panthers are 52-12 in his career when he starts. They lost six of 14 when he wasn't in the lineup last year.
• Depth paid off for Pittsburgh, which had 10 players on the court for at least 13 minutes each.
• Pitt improved to 65-0 against Northeast Conference schools, a record enhanced by its 26-0 mark against city opponent Robert Morris.
