The refs must have decided that Pitt's responsible for the death of the Big East and are officiating as such. Awful no-call (though Pitt would have blown the FT anyway).

Zanna is a gutless puke.

Wow, Syracuse throws Pitt a lifeline. Bad turnover, foul and goaltending.

Now Zanna needs to hit a free throw to tie the game.

What a moronic decision by Robinson.

Shocked that Dixon and Pitt would lose to a lower seeded team.

This timeout by Dixon is his homage to Bylsma calling timeout down two goals with a minute left.

Uncharacteristic positive thinking didn't help I see. Well, at least they can't lose after a double-bye in the BET ever again.

Spare me the Jamie Dixon complaints, please. He can't shoot the ball for these young men, and he can't simulate a Big East environment for freshmen. Steven Adams and James Robinson took some tough lessons Thursday.


This is why Dixon has the best job in America. Most other coaches would face questions about why the same things keep happening to his teams every year; in Pittsburgh the media covers for him and calls him a great coach despite the yearly post-season disasters. He'd be a fool to leave for a job with expectations and a non-compliant media.

SB Nation predicts that Dixon's last game as Pitt head coach before taking the USC job will be a loss to La Salle. Okay, part of that is my prediction.

They should have no problem making the sweet 16 with that bracket.

Pitt's an 8 seed. Will play Wichita State in Salt Lake City. Dixon can hop a flight to LA from there and start looking for a home.

Pitt drew a horrible seed. #8 out in Salt Lake west region.

Pitt will beat Gonzaga and then lose to La Salle in the Sweet 16. That's just how they do things.

The last time Pitt had to fly out west for the 8-9 matchup, we were treated to the Pacific disaster. I have a bad feeling about this one. Does Witchita state have a short white guy that is going to come off the bench and nail 5 threes in a couple minute span?
