Win off the glass

This win is very nice. Pitt defeated the Saint John’s Red Storm 71-64 in NYC today. This win puts them at 3rd in the BE standings and an 11-5 conference record. Pitt led by right at the half and never looked back. D.J Kennedy and the Red Storm fought hard but couldn’t beat the Panthers at home.

What does this win mean?

  • Pitt is 2 games away from a double bye in the BE Tourny
  • They are 11-5 in BE play
  • They have two games they should win

Pitt will finish the season at home with two games. One against Providence and the other home against Rutgers to end the season. If Pitt wins out they will be at least 4th in the Big East and receive a much coveted double bye. That will make them at least a 5 seed in the NCAA Tournament.

This was a rebound win they needed and they got it. GO PITT!
