DeJuan Butler shook his arms at the screaming Washington student section trying to quiet them down. Pittsburgh coach Jamie Dixon looked at the scorer's table for any sign that the Panthers (No. 9 ESPN/USA Today, No. 12 AP) would remain unbeaten.
On the opposite side, Justin Dentmon was being mobbed by his Washington teammates for apparently hitting a needed game-winning shot.
In the middle of the chaos, a Pac-10 officiating crew stared at a tiny television monitor, trying to determine if Pittsburgh would remain undefeated.
The Panthers are 9-0. Barely.
Dentmon's runner in the lane as the buzzer sounded was disallowed after a lengthy video review, and the Panthers held off Washington's late rally for a 75-74 victory Saturday.
Despite the loss the young Huskies are showing improvement as the conference season gets closer. The return of Ryan Appleby gave the Huskies a needed boost from outside which takes a lot of pressure of Brockman on the inside.
