That Was Oddly Dominating

If I told you Jamel Artis would be held to 11 points on 3-6 shooting. That Pitt would only go 7-13 from the free throw line. That Derrick Randall played 18 minutes, while Josh Newkirk only played 6 and was 0-2 shooting. That the Tar Heels would shoot a single basket under 50% (29-59). That UNC would hold the edge in rebounding for the game and turned the ball over less than Pitt...

Open Thread: Pitt-Louisville, if you can find it

It blows my mind that a conference game that involves a top-10 team gets this kind of regional distribution (not simply Pittsburgh, but all over the country). 8pm on a Wednesday, and this is it? The game is also on (subject to blackout) and on the ESPN FullCourt package. This is the kind of coverage that makes it imperative that the ACC gets its own channel in the next...

Pitt rallies for 83-77 win over Syracuse

PITTSBURGH (AP) Jamel Artis scored 20 points including the clinching 3-pointer with a minute to play and Pittsburgh rallied past Syracuse 83-77 on Saturday.

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...

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...

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...
