This will never get old.

What a game and what a win tonight. Levance Fields wins the Lloyd Christmas “Just when I thought you couldn’t get any dumber, you go and do something like this… and totally redeem yourself!” award.
And also, the good news keeps coming in. On the Subway Nightly Sports call, Pomp said that he had sources who indicated that Wanny is getting cold feet over hiring Mazzone.
Case in point…Pitt could’ve flopped when UConn went ahead with just a few minutes remaining. People would’ve said, “they played a tough game, but the Huskies were too strong, too deep, and Pitt’s offense let them down–again.” But the Panthers showed them…three 3’s by Pitt’s guards, to go ahead for good.
Pitt could ride #1 all the way into the BE tourney–if they want.

You don’t expect to win a game when the contribution from the supporting cast is so miniscule, but that happened last night. Jermaine Dixon played great D and hit big free throws and a huge trey, but nobody else (Gibbs, Wanamaker, Brown, McGhee, Robinson) could hit anything or keep from turning the ball over.
But the stars were good enough to get it done. We all know what Blair did, Young played a really ballsy game and Fields made a couple plays when it counted. (He also must be seeing Kemba Walker in his sleep — that kid haunted him.)
Love to finish by taking 4 out of the final 5……..
Of all the good of what happened last noght, I am proudest of how the team played in crunch time
Is there any reason why the Post Gazette isnt saying a word about Cavanaugh or a possible replacement? They have been absolutely silent???
Has DW acknowledged anything?
I’m sure he didn’t mean to hurt him – and he did establish his ‘space’ – but that was by no means a clean play, and Blair should have been called for it.
There’s no doubt Blair rips the ball away and uses his right hand to pull Thabeet over — that’s the price Thabeet pays for not getting the board and leaving his (tree) limb extended. You play much ball, you get used to hand-to-hand combat under the hoop and you learn not to stick your arms in places they’re not wanted.
If all he wanted to do was roll him off he would have two handed the ball, lifted his right elbow to create extension and brought his outside shoulder up and back around to shed the opponent. Classic BB move.
