    North Carolina pitt

    North Carolina continued its recent strong play in the ACC on Saturday as the Tar Heels picked up a 75-71 win over No. 25 Pitt at the Dean Dome. Despite a second-half surge from Pitt that got the Panthers (20-6, 8-5) within a possession with under 25 seconds remaining, North Carolina (17-7, 7-4) made free…

  9. Tyler Ennis pushes No. 25 Pitt that much closer to being a bubble team

    Feb 12, 2014, 10:21 PM EDT

    Pitt v Syracuse

    Pitt is going to have nightmares about Tyler Ennis for a long time. Jim Boehiem’s stud freshman point guard hit a running, 35-footer with two defenders on him as the buzzer sounded to give the Orange a 58-56 win over the Panthers at the Peterson Events Center on Wednesday night. It was just the latest…

  10. What should we make of No. 25 Pitt?

    Feb 8, 2014, 3:03 PM EDT

    Jaye Crockett, Lamar Patterson

    I’ve figured it out. I have the answer. I know who this Pitt team is. They’re the guy who uses a photoshopped picture of himself from 15 years ago on his Match.com profile, over-exaggerating life accomplishments and his salary to make himself appear more attractive to potential dates. The Panthers entered the weekend as the…

    Pittsburgh

    If Super Bowl XLVIII is anything as exciting as this weekend of ACC basketball, we are in for a treat tonight. One day after Syracuse outlasted Duke in front of an NCAA on-campus record crowd, Virginia and Pittsburgh — the Nos. 2 and 3 teams in the ACC — went head-to-head, each getting an opportunity…

  12. No. 18 Pitt loses to No. 17 Duke, will enter February without a quality win

    Jan 27, 2014, 9:59 PM EDT

    Duke v Pittsburgh

    Pitt had a chance to notch themselves their first noteworthy victory of the season as they hosted No. 17 Duke on Monday evening. Instead, the No. 18 Panthers were run off the floor in the second half, losing 80-65 in a game where Quinn Cook, Duke’s starting point guard, was slowed with an ankle injury.…

  13. Defense keeps improving for No. 17 Duke in win over No. 18 Pitt

    Jan 27, 2014, 9:38 PM EDT

    Duke v Clemson

    During Duke’s five-game win streak after a sluggish 1-2 start in the ACC one thing, in particular, has continued to improve for the Blue Devils: Half-court defense. That defense continued to show steady signs of improvement on Monday as No. 17 Duke controlled the second half and slowed down No. 18 Pitt on its way…

  14. No. 20 Pitt a lock to be under-seeded in the NCAA tournament

    Jan 25, 2014, 9:06 PM EDT

    pitt

    No. 20 Pitt is a really, really good basketball team. They entered Saturday sitting second in the nation in KenPom’s rankings, a fact that was more-or-less supported when they went into College Park and knocked off Maryland, 83-79. Lamar Patterson led the way with 28 points, seven boards, seven assists and three steals while not…

    If you watched Cincinnati and Pittsburgh do battle in Madison Square Garden earlier this season like I did, you probably didn’t think very much of either team. The Bearcats changed my thoughts on how good they are with their Saturday road win over Memphis in an AAC contest and, now, after watching Pittsburgh easily handle…

    Jimmy V Classic

    Lamar Patterson scored 17 of his 22 points in the second half and added eight boards, six assists and two steals as Pitt went into Raleigh and knocked off N.C. State 74-62. It was an impressive way for the Panthers to kick off their ACC tenure, but the score doesn’t tell you the full extent…

  17. Lamar Patterson’s improvement the biggest reason Pitt’s a legitimate ACC contender

    Jaye Crockett, Lamar Patterson

      BROOKLYN — On Monday, after watching Pitt put a 23 point beatdown on Texas Tech, I wrote that the Panthers looked like they will be the team that takes advantage of some of the struggles the powers in the ACC have had this season. On Tuesday, Jamie Dixon’s  club made me look smart. In…
