Sure, Pitt. I get it. You don’t leak. Not like FSU. Not like Duke. Not even Syracuse. No. You have to keep it under wraps until the 3pm time. Fine. You don’t want to share early. I get it.

You miss that early bounce and overreactions. Let people wait, only knowing that Pitt will go down to Miami for Thanksgiving weekend.

So we waited. The interminable minutes ticked by.

Pitt Takes It Out On Clemson

Filed under: Basketball — Chas @ 8:39 am

We’ve seen Pitt beat down teams before. We’ve seen them dismantle bad teams like DePaul. We’ve seen Pitt have their way with good teams like Syracuse and UConn in the past. But this. This was abuse against a good team unlike many I’ve seen.

Pitt didn’t run them off the floor or grind them down. They just treated them like they were mannequins they had to move around and through. It was almost like watching Pitt run a drill where they would move the ball and work it around for a set time (roughly 30 seconds) and then finish the play. Over and over again.

Looking at the box score, you know what really jumps out at me? The minutes played by the starters. Zanna scored 22 points but only played 21. minutes. Patterson 26, Wright 25, Young 21. With the bulk coming in the first half. The only reason Robinson played 29 minutes was because Newkirk couldn’t stop fouling. Pitt was able to do this to Clemson the entire game.
