Hoosiers hold off Pitt 81-69

 BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) - Emmitt Holt scored a season high 15 points and Troy Williams finished with 10 points and five rebounds to lead Indiana past Pittsburgh 81-69 Tuesday in the ACC-Big Ten Challenge.
    
Indiana (6-1) has won two straight and three of its last four in a showcase for two of college basketball's power conferences.
    
Chris Jones scored 18 points and Josh Newkirk had 16 to lead Pittsburgh (4-3), which was playing for the first time since its trip to Hawaii.
    
The difference was obvious: Indiana shot 53.2 percent from the field, compared with a season low 36.1 percent for Pittsburgh. Plus, Indiana had a 48-28 scoring edge in the paint.
    
The Hoosiers trailed only twice in the game, 2-0 and 4-2, and were in control most of the game.
    
After leading 45-37 at the half, Pitt closed to 47-41. But the Hoosiers went on a 16-4 run and pushed the lead to as much as 23.
