PITTSBURGH (AP) — Jeff Capel turned the page quickly.

PITTSBURGH (AP) — Senior guard Jared Wilson-Frame recorded his first double-double of the season as Pittsburgh rolled over Maryland-Eastern Shore, 78-43 on Saturday.

Wilson-Frame has passed the 20-point barrier in each of his three games this season. As usual, he did most of his damage from beyond the arc, shooting 4 of 8 from 3-point range. He's shooting 55.6 percent from long range on the season.
PITTSBURGH (AP) — When VMI head coach Dan Earl was breaking down the film of Pittsburgh's first game of the season, he saw a team that liked to get to the basket.
