DURAND JOHNSON RUMORS

Jamie Dixon lays out plan for Durand Johnson's minutes

Pitt basketball head coach Jamie Dixon was dealt a blow this week when it was announced sixth man Durand Johnson would be out for the season with an ACL injury.

Young Panthers off to hot start in ACC

Durand Johnson caught the ball on the wing and rather than take an open shot, decided to dribble to the top of the key.

Hot Shooting on a Cold Night

Weak effort I know, but it was a late night and an early start. I felt obliged to make some sort of weather reference. Unlike the past few games it did not take long for the offense to get going. Pitt came out with purpose on offense. Finishing at the rim and not nearly so much settling for jumpers early. The defense, though, took a little more time to get going. Some of that has...

Pitt hopes romp over Georgetown ignites turnaround

Durand Johnson has only been at Pitt a few months. Yet the freshman forward is a quick study on how the Panthers like to play. And getting pushed around by the likes of Cincinnati and Rutgers is not part of the brand coach Jamie Dixon has built over the last decade. That's why Dixon didn't need to give any table-flipping speeches after a stunning 67-62 upset loss to the...
