Didn't Aaron Gray have like 18 ppg? I like the chances of this kid becoming a dominant center on both sides of the court.

aaron gray had the luxury of staying around 4 years and developing a game. adams is going to hang around long enough to develop the post moves that gray had.

Pitt looked good last night. Can't wait to watch them play Michigan. That will be a nice test.

I live in Minneapolis now. Some guy asked me yesterday "WHAT HAPPENED TO PITT BASKETBALL???" I stated, yea rough year last year, but I think they'll be good this year / talked about their front court, etc... He argued with me that they've been irrelevant / bad "FOR YEARS." Tried saying they were a #1 seed 2 years ago, the tournament streak, etc...

He said "ehhh, I'm pretty sure you're wrong on that." I'm trying to explain I'm 100% confident I'm correct

Anyways... I'm half RAGING and say nicely just to end conversation that they play Michigan on Wed.. so should be good test. He just laughs saying "yea, that'll turn ugly."

REALLY hoping for a win now lol

my brother is a big michigan fan (in football and basketball) and, as long as he puts up with my UNC talk, i put up with his michigan talk. another brother of mine has always been an indiana fan so neither of us are talking to him about bball this year because hes obnoxious about it. weve been joking for the past decade+ "thank god we dont have to hear about calbert cheaney talk anymore".

anyways, Burke, Hardaway, and GR3 are gonna cause Pitt more problems than they can handle. i dont anticipate this game being closer than 6 or 7 at the end of it, but who knows--its college bball after all.

They completely ignore Adams when in their offensive sets.

scumbag pitt. i say the game wont be any closer than 6, and they lose by 5. michigan shot pretty poor from the outside--something that surprised me. that game shouldnt have been as close as it was. that being said, Adams never got the ball on the offensive end. unreal.

Well, guess this opens up a lot more playing time for Durand Johnson and Cam Wright. After this development, it would have been nice for John Johnson not to transfer, just for the added depth.

After how he "punished" Fields I'm sure Dixon will give him a slap on the wrist

edit: Nvm, suspended indefinitely. Double standard in effect I guess

RIP Rick Majerus. According to Dixon, him / Howland received most of their coaching strategies from him

Nice to see Pitt rebound from such a horrible 1st half against an inferior team

Not nice to see they apparently did so after benching Adams

Pitt should be ranked for the first time in way too long today!

Duquesne is lololol bad.

Mark Madden is so fat. (we were sitting just above the media contingent).

Disco Dan was a hit with the drunken Pitt fans in the student section, and what was up with the two trivia questions they did in the game? The Pitt kid was given some BS question like, when was the first city game, 1932, 1935 or 1939? and the Duquesne student was given some soft like what conferencedid Pitt and Duquesne both beolg?
