Pitt tops Fresno State, 75-54

After an early blitz by Fresno State, Pitt stormed back for a convincing 75-54 win over Fresno State on Tuesday night. The Bulldogs came out shooting well and had an early 8-2 lead. Pitt, in fact, didn't lead until about midway in the first quarter when they went ahead 16-15. From there, though, it was all Panthers. A 22-3 run later and it was she wrote.

2013-14 Pitt Basketball Roster Preview: Shooting Guards

Yesterday, we talked a bit about Pitt's point guard situation. Today, we look at the shooting guards. The position has rarely been filled by players of great athletic ability - that point's been brought up quite a bit on this blog. Guys have filled the role capably, though. Ashton Gibbs was a great scorer and Brad Wanamaker was an all-around player that usually filled up...

Exhibition Basketball Soon

Geez, the first exhibition basketball season for Pitt is on Friday. The season is almost upon us. A ton of links to start clearing out.

Wanamaker Going With the Dream

If you are a senior who goes undrafted by the NBA, the odds are stacked heavily against making it. Maybe there’s a chance in the summer leagues, but more likely you would find yourself either playing in the NBDL trying to get a crack. Maybe scoring the occasional 10-day contract because injuries have piled up to such a degree at the parent club that they need a body, or the team...

What’s wrong with Pittsburgh and is it fixable?

If Pittsburgh's struggles had been alarming before Thursday night's game against DePaul, then a stunning 84-81 loss to the host Blue Demons has inspired widespread panic among Panthers fans. A Pittsburgh program that has won 25 or more games in seven of Jamie Dixon's eight seasons may not even get to 20 this season barring a turnaround. The Panthers parlayed a soft schedule...

A Late Recap Of Starting the B-Ball Season

My primary focus is on the Albany game, since I paid attention to that one. The Rider game, I have watched a little of online. PittScript has a better write-up of just the Rider game. Opening games are hard enough to judge. Wildly different performances from one to the next make it that much harder. Pitt is still 2-0 after the start of the season, and there is plenty of reason for...
