Pitt lost to UNC by 10 (75-65) and UNC was better and the much taller and athletic team. The only way Pitt could have even stayed in this game was by pumping up three’s but they didn’t. Pitt started out down by 5-7 points and stayed about that distance, never getting closer.
Pitt got down by 16 in the second half but every time Pitt made a run, UNC just dumped it inside to one of their big men and he just turned around and put the ball in the basket. Pitt offered no resistance. Couliby tried but to no avail. Brown put in his usual worthless effort. Xman made his share of the usual mistakes but even if he’d of been perfect it didn’t really matter. UNC’s three big men just dominated the game in every fashion.
This game was why Pitt had to win at Wake Forest. You are going to have these mismatches in the ACC and this was a total mismatch. Not much else to say except Pitt plays a mediocre Notre Dame team next. A team that has owned Pitt in the past. Unfortunately Pitt will enter this game with very little confidence.
Disappointed by not surprised….
