JOPLIN -- Five Pitt State players scored in double figures as the Gorillas pulled away in the second half for an 85-75 victory over pesky Avila Saturday (Nov. 17) in the Chris Tucker Memorial Classic.

The Gorillas (3-0) trailed 59-58 with 8:39 to play in the game and Pitt State held onto a tenuous 69-66 lead with 5:52 remaining against the Eagles (3-3) before capitalizing on a 7-2 run to gain separation.

Courtney Ingram, Rico Pierrevilus and Kaleb Porter each scored 14 points for Pitt State, while Marky Nolen (13) and A.J. Adams (10) also scored in double figures.

The Gorillas outscored the Eagles 34-18 at the foul line in a game slowed by 57 personal fouls. Pitt State converted 34 of 45 charity shots in the contest.

Avila got a game-high 17 points from Brandon Redmond, while Lance Miller and Curtis Churchman added 16 apiece.

Pitt State will return home for a Tuesday (Nov. 20) match-up against Newman. Tipoff is set for 7 p.m. (CST) at John Lance Arena.
