Big win in Milwaukee

Hey, they proved me wrong. Pitt won this game with good defense and good rebounding. Despite leading scorer Ashton Gibbs only having 2 points Pitt only gave up 51, which is ten points below their season average. Center Gary McGhee was the first Pitt player in double figures and finished the game with 10 points.

At first Pitt was playing poor defense and not boxing out at all, but change came swiftly and the scoreboard went in their favor fast.

Pitts Travon Woodall had some strong takes in the victory

So what does this mean?

  • Pitt now has 20 wins
  • They sit 4th in the Big East
  • They are on a 4 game win streak
  • Their NCAA tourny bid is almost a lock

Many good things came from this win. The most important thing though is their position in the Big East standings. They won’t finish in the top two, but can finish 3rd or 4th, giving them two byes in the BE tourny. I think they’ll finish 4th right ahead of Louisville and Georgetown.

If Pitt keeps playing like this they will be a serious threat to anyone in March.
