Mouhamadou Gueye added 10 points for Pitt (3-6).
Ryan Moffatt and Nelly Cummings sandwiched three-point plays around a 3-pointer by Jack Ferguson to trim Colgate's deficit to two points with 12:23 left and the Raiders made 7 of 8 from the foul line during a 12-2 spurt that gave them a 68-65 lead with 1:24 remaining. Gueye finished a driving layup through contact and hit the and-1 free throw and, after Cummings missed a quick 3-point shot, Hugley scored a contested bucket inside to make it 70-68 with 19 seconds to go.
Odukale, who missed last Friday's loss to Virginia due to an ankle injury, came off the bench and played 22 minutes for Pitt. The 6-foot-5 sophomore, who went into the game second on the team in scoring (12.1 per game) and first in assists (3.7), was 0-for-4 shooting and finished with three points, making 3 of 8 from the free-throw line, and three assists.
Hugley picked up his second personal when he was called for an offensive foul with 8:44 left in the first half and had four points in nine minutes before the break.
Hugley made two free throws and a turnover by Cummings led to a dunk by Gueye. Hugley then stole a pass near the top of the key and took it coast-to-coast for another dunk 51 seconds into the second half to give the Panthers a 37-33 lead. Ryan Moffatt made 1-of-2 free throws for the Raiders before Jeffress hit back-to-back jumpers and Hugley added another to spark a 10-2 run that gave Pitt its biggest lead of the game at 47-36 with 14 minutes to play.
Cummings led the Raiders (4-6) with 17 points and Tucker Richardson added 12 points, five rebounds and five assists.
Colgate is 1-2 against Atlantic Coast Conference teams this season. The Raiders lost 77-74 to N.C. State on Nov. 13 and beat Syracuse 100-85 on Nov. 20.
