Pitt basketball: Should Pitt and West Virginia renew their rivalry?

It is time to renew the rivalry of Pitt and West Virginia in basketball. The Pitt Panthers and West Virginia Mountaineers first played each other in basketball in 1905, and from there a rivalry was born.  From 1918-2012, the two schools met at least once per year for a total of 184 times.  West Virginia leads the all-time series 96-88. In 2012 the Mountaineers left the Big East...

Open Thread: Villanova-Pitt, This Could Be the Last Time

I really don’t see Pitt and Nova playing any time soon. The last thing the Wildcats want is for Pitt to have more opportunities to recruit in the Philly area. For all that talk about how Pitt has that connection for NY/NJ, Pitt has been doing rather well grabbing kids in or connected to the Philly area in recent years. Both Gil Brown and Lamar Patterson may have been from Central...

Sort of Rebounding Against the Johnnies

A day late but the football schedule stuff pushed things out. Well, Travon Woodall did. It was a little different for the rest of the team. Lamar Patterson snapped out of his funk in the second half. Steven Adams had a great first half, but disappeared in the second. Talib Zanna… /sigh. You could see from the opening miss by St. John’s that Pitt had put a re-emphasis all week...

Open Thread: Pitt-Nova

The game is on ESPNU at 7pm. Work schedule is out of whack at the moment. Heading in for the night, which means DVR delay and shunning all media to avoid anything on the game. While there is no official word, Travon Woodall pronounced himself all ready to play tonight’s game. Woodall, however, doesn’t get the final say. Pitt coach Jamie Dixon knew when Woodall went down that...

So Much Basketball

Feel like I have neglected most of the pre-season and exhibition portion of Pitt basketball. Lots of  questions. Lots of curiosity. Lots of reasons for optimism. But no one really seems to be sure of the answers. You can see it in all the preseason polls and predictions. There’s talk of Pitt being sleeper potential. Lots of polls putting them just outside the top-25, but definitely...

Overthinking Newkirk

The verbal of Josh Newkirk to Pitt is being taken — both locally and nationally — as pure evidence that Pitt and Coach Jamie Dixon will have no problem recruiting against ACC teams and in ACC country. Pitt coach Jamie Dixon is adapting on the fly to the Panthers’ arrival into the ACC in 2013. The commitment from Word of God point guard Josh Newkirk in Raleigh, N.C., is the...

Reveiwing Robinson’s Summer Run

James Robinson has had a productive first half to the summer. As being part of the gold-winning USA U18 squad, he played with a lot of top freshman talent. Robinson was something of a surprise to make the U18 squad. Even acknowledged by the U18 and Florida coach Billy Donovan. “We weren’t sure we were going to keep him. We cut the team from 25 to 14 and then kept guys around...

Overview Basketball Recruiting

In football, coaches recruit for everything. There may be priorities at certain positions. A greater need, or such. But it is a much wider net. Basketball, though, is a different thing. Only 13 scholarships available in total. Only a few spots each year. You only have so much flexibility to take the “best available” player who wants to commit. Pitt is expected to have two or...

Video: Pitt Players Postgame

Pitt had a career-high 29 points from Travon Woodall, and a 25-point night from Ashton Gibbs. Those numbers were certainly impressive, but the Panthers also got a nice effort from Dante Taylor off the bench--9 points and 5 rebounds in 22 minutes.

Woodall leads Pitt to fourth win in row (AP)

Travon Woodall scored a career-high 29 points and Ashton Gibbs added 25 to lead Pittsburgh to a 79-70 win over Villanova on Sunday, its fourth straight win. The Panthers (15-9, 4-7 Big East) led by as many as 18 in the second half, though the Wildcats (10-13, 3-8 Big East) were able to trim that lead to three on a pair of Jayvaughn Pinkston free throws with 22.3 seconds left.

UNLV Blows Out New Mexico

#20 UNLV 80, New Mexico 63This match-up was an absolute blowout in the second half. This was a sloppy game (the teams combined for 33 offensive rebounds to only 30 defensive rebounds, as well as 35 turnovers), but UNLV had 11 steals and 6 blocks, both of which allowed to get out on fast breaks for easy baskets. With the crowd behind them, New Mexico seemed to just get demoralized...

Did Pittsburgh Hit Rock Bottom Against Rutgers?

Rutgers 62, Pittsburgh 39Pittsburgh is now in a five game losing streak, and this game was the worst of the bunch. What's been killing them, more than anything, has been atrocious offensive efficiency. It's not that they're just missing open shots (though they are doing some of that as well). What it's been has just been a lack of offensive movement or flow. Whoever...

Pittsburgh Continues To Slide

Cincinnati 66, #22 Pittsburgh 63While Xavier has been decimated by the brawl with Cincinnati, both in terms of personnel and team psychology/chemistry, Cincinnati has been largely unaffected.

Numerology: Cincinnati 66, Pittsburgh 63

0: Points scored by Cincinnati's bench. I'm not a big fan of tracking bench vs starter points, but zero is a number of note. The Cincy bench played 29 minutes and missed all three of their FG attempts. 3: Consecutive losses for Pitt. It's been four seasons since Pitt lost 4 games in a row. In the 2007-08 season it was the trio of Marquette, Notre Dame and Louisville...

New Years Test and Questions

Home season opener in the Big East tonight. A New Years Day match-up with Cinci at 7pm. Lots of questions. Not sure if this is an absolute must win for Pitt, but it’s close. Cinci seems to have come together after their brawl with Xavier — gutting out wins without big men. Going with 4 and even 5 guard line-ups at points. Doing whatever it takes. Pitt is struggling mightily....
