DURHAM, N.C. — Michael Young struggled to find a silver lining after Pitt's efficient offensive performance was negated against one of the top programs in college basketball for the second time in four days.

Young pointed to the improvement in the Panthers' offense scoring 40 points in the lane and how they made No. 21 Duke scramble for much of Saturday afternoon, but their losing streak stretched to eight games with a 72-64 loss at Cameron Indoor Stadium and it served as a reminder that Pitt is very much a work in progress.
