Murphy's late jumper gives Pittsburgh a 74-72 win over BC

PITTSBURGH (AP) His team's 10-point lead gone and a timeout at his disposal, Pittsburgh coach Jeff Capel could have called the Panthers over and tried to settle them down in the final seconds against Boston College on Wednesday night.

Instead, Capel went the other way, trusting his players to make the right decision. A timeout would have let the Eagles set their defense. By opting not to use one, Capel felt his team still had the advantage.

It did. As Boston College scrambled to cover Pitt guards Xavier Johnson and Trey McGowens, Ryan Murphy squirted free. Justin Champagnie spotted Murphy breaking open and fed him the ball. Murphy sprinted to the top of the key and let fly a jumper that was pure the moment he let it go.
