Video: Virginia Pulls Off A Triple-Block On Pitt’s Cameron Wright

Cameron Wright probably regrets his decision to drive the basketball on the possession shown below. Wright, a junior guard for the Pitt Panthers, tried to take it hard to the hole against Virginia in the second half of Saturday’s ACC semi-final matchup. He was met by three Cavaliers, all of whom blocked his attempt. It’s one of the rare “triple-blocks” we’ve ever seen.

Cam Wright motivated by Pitt's lack of respect in the polls

I generally don't pay too much attention to the college basketball rankings for the first couple of weeks of the season. A lot of teams load up on cupcakes and it's just hard to get a handle on things when half of all college basketball teams might start out with a few wins. But with the Panthers now 9-0, as I've said in the past, Pitt should be ranked. Pitt's non...
