The ACC curse must be real. Pitt is only beating Depaul by 3 in the 2nd half.

5 mins left, Nasir Robinson on the foul line down 1.

Pitt's defense sucks. Ashton Gibbs is great, Nasir Robinson is a beast, and this Zanna kid looks very good. But they can't guard anyone.

On the road, just win.

Win by one, win by 40 - still counts as a win.

Cleveland is a heck of a player, but if he's going to carry that team, he's gotta learn to hit free throws. He's hit 4-10 in a two-point game. Not good.

Yeah...but Depaul?

This would be like losing to Holy Cross by 20.

from the replay under the hoop, he wasn't fouled, but no excuse to let him get inside that easily...

No.

Losing to Holy Cross by 20 is like losing to Holy Cross by 20.

Winning on the road at DePaul is like winning a road game in the Big East.

Losing to DePaul, however, is bad.

And Jesus, is Pitt trying really hard to do just that. Ideally, a four-point lead with ten seconds left would be safe, no?!

Wow.

He definitely swiped at him with no chance to do anything but foul. Maybe he whiffed, but at that point, the layup was inevitable.

Shades of Darius Rice...

Wait a second, do I get a mandatory week-long ban for uttering that name? I take it back!

Pitt losing a four-point lead with 10 seconds left brings back some fond memories.

Pretty stupid final 8.4 seconds by Pitt....

They earned this loss.

4 game winning streak from Pitt...wasn't expecting that this year. And is rushing the court really worth it for beating an unranked team?

Did they really storm the court after beating an unranked team?!

Pitt with an absurd inbounds with .8 left after DePaul didn't miss second on purpose. At least throw it to midcourt and give yourself a chance at a real shot. An 85-footer is usually going to be off-target.

Swofford is changing his name to Sadim. Everything he touches turns to dlog.

Maybe they were hoping for a foul? They've had success with that in the past.

That was definitely a foul on Young's drive to the hoop.

Pitt might not make the NCAA tournament if they don't get things together fast. Usually a Dixon coached Pitt team finds a way to be good, regardless of how many kids they lost from the previous year. This one, however, is under achieving massively. I think Gibbs flirting with the NBA (Judging by his body language, I'm not sure he really wants to be there) and Birch transferring ten games into the year has messed up the team chemistry.
