Open Thread: Pitt-Delaware State

Filed under: Basketball,Open Thread — Chas @ 3:33 pm

End of year projects being rushed or made at the last minute. Having to buy presents. Kid’s school stuff. A flurry of various doctors’ appointments to make sure all the money is used from the benefits account before the end of the year. There is nothing about December that isn’t rushed, hurried or harried. Tonight it is my daughter’s holiday concert. I love her, but sitting through an hour plus of kids from 4-11 doing Christmas music has to at least hold a spot in purgatory.

The concert is — of course — set for 7 pm. Same as the game with the Hornets. It appears to be a game that can only be viewed via the Pitt website. Guess I’ll be surreptitiously checking my phone for updates tonight.

As for the Hornets. They are a MEAC team. A 5-6 record. No surprise they are renting themselves out for beatings. They are in the midst of a 6-game road trip. They are coming off an overtime loss that nearly had them knock off Penn State. Which would have still counted as beating a major conference opponent. They also beat Delaware (making the Blue Hens’ upset win over Virginia look that much more fluky and unhelpful for Pitt’s non-con SOS)

About the only intrigue in this game is that DSU features a center named Kendall Gray. In one player, it can evoke the frontcourt of the 2005-2007 Panthers.
