PITTSBURGH (AP) -- Tray Woodall scored 17 points and Pittsburgh beat Washington State 71-65 on Friday night to win the College Basketball Invitational title.
  
Lamar Patterson had 14 points, eight rebounds and five assists while being named the tournament's Most Valuable Player. Talib Zanna continued his strong postseason by finishing with 12 points and five rebounds for the Panthers (22-17), who salvaged a disappointing season by winning the final two games of the best-of-three series.
  
Reggie Moore led Washington State (19-18) with 18 points but the Cougars had trouble stopping Pitt even though the Panthers played without star senior guard Ashton Gibbs, who missed the final two games of his college career with an ankle injury.
  
Pitt shot 50 percent from the floor and turned it over just three times. The Panthers broke it open with a 12-2 run midway through the second half and the Cougars would get no closer than six the rest of the way.
