Pitt 72 – Florida State 79 recap 2/20/21

I”ll open with the last comment I made on the game blog. Pitt doesn’t have a
single player that could make the starting five for Florida State.! Not Champ…no
one. Florida State was the much better team size and ability wise.

I thought Pitt played fairly well considering their disadvantages in size and ability.
Champ is definitely playing hurt.

I liked the guard oriented offense (without Toney) and thought Sibande played a
very good game. Pitt lead 6-4 and that was it. All Florida State after. Once Pitt got
within three points but mostly it was a 6-10 point Seminole lead.

I could nit –pick and talk about Pitt’s dribbling contest while the offense stood
around and lack of rebounding out of the zone defense but over all I think Pitt
played about as good as they could.

I’ll try to keep these threads correctly updated because actual days and opponents are being jerked around due to C-19 rescheduling.  If you see something wrong with any posts just email me at rkohberger@gmail.com and I’ll try to fix it as soon as possible.

EDITORS NOTE: Please watch this video posted below – I volunteer with this hospice doing end-of-life ‘Salutes to Veterans’ to acknowledge to the veteran and their families their past military service and accomplishments. This is a powerful time and it is important to all who partake.

This particular video invites all Vietnam Era veterans to celebrate with us. Normally this is done in person at a big conference hall with food, speeches, music and museum exhibits and gets over 700 attendees each year – due to Covid this year’s will be virtual. I will remind all again as the date gets closer...
