This team can go deep into the bench. That is a benefit. They have played some of the best teams in the nation to very close games. If Pitt had 1 scorer to take over a game late they would have been a top 10 team.


That and foul shots.

Yes, IF they had that scorer. The same player they have been looking for about a decade. Until they get a true-blue chip 2/3 that can create offensively by himself off the dribble, this team will continue to grind out 24 win seasons, bore me to death with half their games in the 57-52 range, and generally underwhelm come tourney time. Its no surprise their best team was when Sam Young approximated the player I described in his last year.

They'd still have a gaping hole at coach.

This Pitt-Witch State game is butt ugly basketball.
Combined .250 fg percentage?
The Zags will be smiling like a Butcher's dog no matter who "wins" this match.

A team that can go 10 deep and plays good defense will have a chance with anyone in the nation. That is all I am saying. The 1 player away from a top 10 was just stating the only thing that separates from most teams. If they can stop a star player Pitt could definitely win against anyone.

I think you're overrating them, but fair enough.

I love Pitt for the fact that they score in the 50s. Thats what I loved about the Big East from the past decade. I'm afraid of what is going to happen to Pitt in the ACC. I hope they don't adapt to it.

Pitt better come out in the second half and play like they played against Cuse in the 2nd half.

And why can't Pitt make any baskets underneath? THey are so weak under there.

If Patterson threw an elbow. If it takes that long to determine it, it shouldn't be a flagrant foul.

Need to score on this last possession. I'm listening to the game, and they sound like they are playing lazy and like crap.

I'm stunned that Pitt is laboring to a team that statistically they should be drop-kicking.

Perhaps Dixon will stop planning his move to LA long enough to deliver a halftime speech and make adjustments.
