Basketball Season Rolling Up

The Blue-Gold Scrimmage was Sunday. There’s another fan/student event on Friday night — nice tie-in for homecoming weekend. The first exhibition is on Halloween. The season opener is in 3 1/2 weeks. Time to run some links. I’m going to skip specific preseason prognostication mags. Basically Pitt is being projected into the NCAA Tournament. The expectations in the ACC are anywhere...

Pitt Panthers basketball: Durand Johnson will be the x factor

Pitt’s most important player this season will be Durand Johnson. No it is not senior leader Cameron Wright nor point guard James Robinson, it is the Baltimore small forward. The 6’6 rising junior averaged 8.8 ppg and looked to be the real x factor in the Panthers offense before he tore his ACL on January 11 against Wake Forest. However, Johnson should be healthy by the time ACC...

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. When a Maryland defender closed in, the freewheeling Pittsburgh sophomore swingman threw up a contested 3-pointer that splashed through the net. Rather than peek over his shoulder at Jamie Dixon to see if he'd violated one of the coach's rules about shot selection...

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...
