#9 Virginia vs Pitt recap…

This could have been a great win for the Pitt Panthers knocking off the #9 ranked Cavaliers but once again only two players showed up to play, Jamel Artis and Michael Young. Pitt hung in there through the first half only down 2 pts at halftime, 29-27. The 2nd half was a different story as Virginia took off from the start and never looked back. Virginia shot 48% from the field with the Panthers only shooting 39%. Pitt continues to show their biggest weakness as they have no outside shooting at all unless Artis decides to get hot. Pitt was 2-13 behind the arc while Virginia was 9-16 which was a big difference in the game. Until Jamie Dixon finds a way bring in some outside scoring threats this team will never make it far in the big tourney or ACC.  It won’t get much easier for the Panthers next week as they travel to play Miami and UNC.
