Pitt host Seton Hall in rematch

The game tonight will be played as scheduled at 6 p.m despite the massive snowfall throughout the eastern seaboard. But, let’s get off of that and talk hoops. This is the last stand of the Panthers in my opinion. This and RMU next week need to be wins. In Pitt’s loss to SH a few weeks ago, they were unable to stop the driving ability of the Pirates guards and fouled early and often. Pitt turned the ball over 20 times in their last matchup and that can’t happen again.

If Pitt loses it will be the first sweep by Seton Hall in 16 years. They have lost 4 of their five last 5 and need to get some wins. The Pirates did not shoot well from deep in the last game and that is why Pitt must keep them from driving. If they can do that they can win.

Since it’s already game day I will give my pick now. Pitt will rebound much better today and this win may keep them in the top 25. This win would also get them off this losing skid and keep them gunning into March. Pitt wins:   68-62
