Now that the college basketball season has officially ended, it is time to put this season in the past and look forward to the bright future that is in store for the Pitt basketball program. Over the next few weeks, I will unroll a report card for each of the team’s returning players from this season and what they need to improve upon for next season.
However, looking at the program...
Jamie Dixon is the best coach that Pitt has ever had. Florida is the number one overall team in the country, thus they should have beaten Pitt. It should come as no surprise that Pitt lost. Dixon has a great young team that will blend well with talented recruits that are coming in.
Jamie Dixon WILL NOT be fired. Sean Miller WILL NOT leave Arizona for Pitt. Arizona is a much more...
On Thursday, Pitt won their first NCAA tournament game over a team that was seeded higher than them since 1981 with a 77-48 victory over the Colorado Buffaloes.
The Panthers roared out of the gate with a 13-0 run and they never looked back. This Pitt basketball team looked the best that they have looked all season. In fact, this was the best that I have ever seen a Jamie Dixon coached...
Anthony Lee a former center for Temple University announced on Tuesday his intention to transfer from the program. Within an hour the Panthers were reported as being interested in the American Athletic Conference leading rebounder. The Panthers should give Lee a hard no. The Panthers are losing their starting center Talib Zanna following the season and there will be a vacancy at...
Forgive Jamie Dixon if Pitt's season flashed before his eyes when Talib Zanna collapsed on the court.
A hush fell over Petersen Events Center on Sunday when Zanna twisted his left ankle against Virginia.
Pitt already had lost one key contributor when sophomore swingman Durand Johnson suffered a season-ending knee injury Jan. 11.
The Panthers can ill afford to lose Zanna, the...
Pitt center Talib Zanna said the Panthers were "mad" after their loss Saturday against Syracuse and wanted to "take it out" on Clemson, who happened to be their first opponent after the Orange.
Panthers coach Jamie Dixon said the Panthers "practiced angry" because they knew they let that game slip away and wanted to prove they could play a lot better...
Talib Zanna scored 22 points on near flawless shooting and No. 20 Pittsburgh drilled Clemson 76-43 on Tuesday night.
