Can Pitt basketball freshmen take a big step forward in 2014-15?

Can Pitt's promising group of freshmen take the "next step" ? Pitt is coming off a good, but not great season. The Panthers won 26 games, participated in the NCAA tournament for the 12th time in 13 years, and transitioned from the Big East to the ACC with a 5th place finish. All of those were positive signs. The negative signs were more of a "what could have been...

Oh God, I Have to Think About Basketball

Morning Madness tomorrow. Local press conference/interviews yesterday. Stop me if you’ve heard this before. Pitt plans to be more up-tempo on offense and try to score more in transition. “I definitely think we can do more in transition this year,” point guard James Robinson said. “We have a lot of great athletes on the team, a lot of guys who are interchangeable at times...

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. You know, after back-to-back trips to Birmingham for football and winning the CBI last year, the only-half-joking point was that those events should serve as an example and motivator to the teams for what not to let happen to the season (“If Pitt...

CBI Finale: Time To Finish

For all the deserved mockery the CBI gets, is there anyone that doesn’t want Pitt to win? Is there anyone so full of bile that they don’t want Nasir Robinson, Ashton Gibbs and Nick Rivers to have their final game at the Pete end in victory? I hope not. The big takeaway so far in the CBI has been seeing other players take advantage of this post-season exhibition time. Coach Dixon...

WVU's move to Big 12 leaves Pitt rivalry in doubt

Pittsburgh and West Virginia have met at least once a year in basketball since 1915, a rivalry that's endured a couple dozen coaching changes, various conference alignments and a half-dozen venues. Yet there's a sense the 184th meeting between the schools on Thursday night might be the final page in a book whose first chapter was written more than a century ago. West Virginia...

LiveBlog: Pitt-USF

Well this is another road game. This time in the Bulls temp home. USF has been better this year, and actually better than decent in whatever facility they decide to use as home court this season. Heck, they’ve actually won their games against Rutgers and DePaul. The Bulls have size up front, so that should be interesting to say the least for Pitt. While Zanna has been in something...

Trusting Tray

No matter how many times in a row Pitt keeps beating Villanova, it will not make up for that Elite Eight game. But, it will have to do that Pitt keeps beating the Wildcats. Well, I wrote it after the WVU game, but it bears repeating. This Pitt squad is Tray Woodall’s to lead on the court. When I watch Woodall bringing the ball up court and either Nasir Robinson or Lamar Patterson...

What Is This Thing Called Optimism?

That’s strange. There’s a weird feeling among Pitt fans and the basketball team. It’s been a couple months since we had this sensation. Pitt notched its first Big East road win. Coach Dixon moved to 5-4 in games at Morgantown — more wins down there than the previous six head coaches if you are wondering. Pitt did a very good job defending the 3-point shot (though, the Hoopies...
