One To Forget

Pitt won because BC is not good. There’s no pretending that Pitt overcame any adversity other than what they inflicted upon themselves. The Panthers struggled in all facets of the game at various points or for the almost the entire time — depending on the particular facet. Pitt had three stretches of over 3 minutes without scoring a point. One in particular lasted 8:44 from the...

Pitt basketball defeats Boston College 61-60 in OT

I mean, there's really no point in this, right? There's no logical way to break down Pitt's 61-60 win over Boston College. And, really, I'm not even going to try too hard to do so. It wasn't on the level of the Armed Forces Bowl in terms of lunacy, but, well, it wasn't that far off, either. The tl;dr version was that Pitt trailed by ten with three minutes left. Trailed by eight with...

Better to Be in Maui Than Buffalo

The Pitt basketball team is in Hawaii. They play the University of Hawaii at Midnight tonight/tomorrow morning. If you watched the Samford game, then you saw Pitt go small for large portions of the game. The front court of Mike Young, Jamel Artis and Sheldon Jeter. It’s surprising only insofar as Coach Jamie Dixon has always played a true center. This year, however, the options...

Pitt sluggishly beats Samford 63-56

Pitt moves to 2-0 with an uninspiring win over Samford Pitt moves to 2-0 on the young season with a 63-56 win over Samford University.

2014-15 Pittsburgh Panthers Basketball Preview

A strong (16-1) start and a strong finish sandwiched a weak stretch through the middle of the ACC season for the Pitt Panthers in 2013-2014. After losing Lamar Patterson and Talib Zanna, ups and downs may occur again for Jamie Dixon's squad. Last season's secondary players will need to take the next step in their development if Dixon is to guide an 11th team to the NCAA Tournament...

Is Sheldon Jeter Ready to Start for Pitt?

Does forward Sheldon Jeter have what it takes to start for the Pittsburgh Panthers this season after sitting out an entire year? Recently, an article written by fellow Cardiac Hill contributor, Aron Minkoff, got me thinking a lot more about the potential starting lineup(s) for the Pittsburgh Panthers this upcoming season.  I am not going to spend too much time speculating about...

Unleash the Irrational Optimism

Don’t lie. You read the articles on the pro-am games last night. You try to tell yourself to take it all with a grain of salt. To keep perspective. And yet… Derrick Randall looks different. He’s got a different aura about him this June. Physically, he’s night and day from last summer with a stronger, leaner frame. The rising senior has more energy as he sprints up and down...
