It really is strange as a fan to feel like it is just playing out the string at this point. Not the team. I am sure most of them haven’t checked out on the season yet. They want to keep playing. Trying to prove that it was more about nagging injuries and bad luck that made this such a frustrating and disappointing season.
Yet, as a fan, it’s different. We know the NCAA Tournament is out. The NIT is weak consolation — and even that is guaranteed at the moment. Maybe there’s some excitement for the Big East Tournament. After all, it has been a while since Pitt even won a game at it. But these final three games. Who knows? At this point I want to see Nas and Gibbs finish with some good. I want to see more of Moore and Gilbert for the future. Maybe even a little more time for John Johnson.
The game is 2pm on CBS. A really odd scheduling quirk this year. No Saturday games for the entire month of February. Instead, four straight Sunday games.
The rules are well known by now. Moderated chat. Not a free-for-all. Yada, yada, yada. It’s been a frustrating year. A lot of negativity that usually doesn’t show up until the NCAA Tournament. Try and keep it sane.
