Pitt defeats Oakland 81-77 in Overtime

The Panthers needed overtime to beat Oakland for the second straight time. Just like in the previous meeting between the Oakland Grizzlies and the Pitt Panthers, overtime was required to decide a winner. And just like in the 2012 meeting, the Panthers emerged victorious. Pitt defeated Oakland 81-77 in what really was a game they had no business winning. The Panthers trailed for 27...

ACC Morning Linkfest 12/20/2014 with Game Sim Predictions

Just a quick post for the day.  The ACC lost both games on Friday night with Clemson losing to South Carolina by 23 and Miami losing to Eastern Kentucky by 28.  Miami's loss in particular was a disappointing effort in which they were outscored in the 2nd half 45-19.  The loss wasn't exactly of "Chaminade classification" though, EKU was ranked #64 on the NCAAGameSim.com rankings...

Virginia takes down Cleveland State

Cleveland State isn’t a bad basketball team. That much was on display at times last night, like when they held us to 8-20 shooting in the first half, or scored 36 points in the second. Unfortunately for them, each of these outbursts on one end were accompanied by slumps (making two of their first 17 shots, allowing 39 to us) on the other. Malcolm Brogdon and Justin Anderson scored...

Takeaways from Duke's win over UConn

A couple of takeaways from last night: Tyus Jones & Amile Jefferson will always find ways to impact the game.Tyus may not always be on with his shot but what he does do is force the issue, Jones was 9-10 from the free throw line. That is a huge stat and shows that with the ball in his hands even in a low scoring game he will find a way. Amile is a guy that is going to fight...

Duke Slugs it Out With UConn, wins 66-56

Duke grits out a tough game against UCONN and gets the win 66-56. Duke played a very hungry and pesky UCONN team lead by Ryan Boatright who scored 22 of this teams 56 points. Boatright was also responsible for 4 steals and kept Duke off-balance on both ends of the floor. Duke turned the ball over 19 times and while some were unforced most were attributable to a very wily UCONN...

ACC Morning Linkfest 12/18/2014 with Game Sim Predictions

The ACC had 3 double-digit wins (well, almost) on Wednesday night.  The best of the three came from NC State who bounced back from their loss to Wofford by beating Tennessee 65-56.  Ok, not double-digits, but close enough for the intro.  Ralston Turner was the star for the Pack, scoring 33 points and making 8 3's on the night.  The Pack posted an offensive efficiency of 137...

Jamie Dixon comments on Steve Pederson leaving Pitt

Steve Pederson and Pitt 'mutually' agreed to part ways on Wednesday and with the news that Paul Chryst was leaving for Wisconsin, it's been a busy day. Buried in between all of that as the fact that Pitt actually had a basketball game against Manhattan tonight. The Panthers won and one of our writers, Aron, was down with the media for the contest and afterwards, Pederson leaving...

Pitt defeats Manhattan 65-56

It wasn't pretty but a win is a win as the Panthers improve to 7-3 on the season. While it is a tough thing to do, taking each game one at a time might be the best approach with this Pitt basketball team. This game, the Panthers defeated the Manhattan Jaspers 65-56 in what certainly was not a pretty win, but a win nonetheless.   While Manhattan is now 2-7 and not going to make too...

Steve Pederson out as Pitt athletic director

What? "Before beginning a robust national coaching search, Steve Pederson and I spoke this morning and we mutually agreed that this would be the appropriate time to make a change in athletic department leadership.

Coaching search will answer questions about Pitt administration

Pitt's approach to this coaching vacancy will say a lot about the administration. The University of Pittsburgh is about to conduct their fourth head football coaching search and subsequent hire since the year 2010. The tenures of Mike Haywood, Todd Graham, and Paul Chryst have since passed, and the program is no better off now than when the school let go of Dave Wannstedt. The former...

Duke plays poorly versus Elon; Was it rust?

Duke hadn’t played in 11 days before their match up against Elon last night, and I heard a lot of talk about rust after the 75-62 victory. Besides turnovers, though, the stats from the game might not speak to rust as much as expected. Many point to Duke’s shoddy three point percentage, and I agree that many of the shots were wide open. But three pointers are fickle, and...

We have Bowls and College Basketball from the ACC Bloggers this week. Did you know the ACC had the most 1st and 2nd All-Americans according to the USA Today? Good find by ACCPerscription… Don’t say it was just because the ACC has a lot of teams either. The Big 10 and the SEC have just as many. The ACC won a couple of national championships recently.

Sluggish Duke Pushes By Elon 75-62

Not too surprisingly Duke came out completely rusty and flat versus Elon but managed to get the win 75-62. Duke was sloppy in all phases of the game, turning the ball over 17 times, shooting under 20% from 3 point range and only 52% from the foul line. Duke did get a herculean and record-setting performance from freshmen Jahlil Okafor (playing on his 19th birthday) who scored...

ACC Morning Linkfest 12/15/2014 with Game Sim Predictions

That was an eventful Sunday.  The ACC won 5 of it's 7 games on Sunday by double-figures, but those 2 other games were tough.  NC State played Wofford and Syracuse took on Louisiana Tech.  Coming into the matchups, Pomeroy had both opponents as top 100 teams, while Game Sim had Wofford top 100 and Louisiana Tech around 150.   In other words, these opponents were solid competition...

ACC Bubble Analysis for 12/14/2014

The non-conference portion of the college basketball is drawing to a close. If you picked up a couple of good non-conference wins, great! If not then there is a lot of work to be done from now until in March. The ACC is solid through the top 6 teams, and then it’s total chaos. The bottom of the conference is just bad this year. Now about those bubble teams… In my ranking system...
