Wow, I couldn’t have been more wrong about last night. Louisville came out from the opening tip and dominated. At no point was Pitt in the game. Pitt looked confused by the pressing zone that Pitino has been running forever. We were miserable on the offensive end, by my count we had about three open looks the entire game. Defensively we were getting beat off the dribble and committing stupid foul after stupid foul. That was the most embarassing performance I have ever seen at the Pete. I have been going to games for 3 years now and been watching us since we moved to the Pete.
I was told to wait until this morning to write this column because I’m extremely upset with two players on our team. So instead of naming these players and openly trashing them like I was going to I am going to give you some stats. Player A has more personal fouls than fields goals made this year, the only player on our team to accomplish such a feat. Player B is shooting a magical 26% over the past four games. Can you guess which two I’m talking about?
Please everyone don’t blame the refs for us losing last night. The team played so bad we could have had any crew doing the game and still lost. When you play like you want to lose the game, except Tyrell Biggs, your going to lose.
This isn’t the end of the world though Pitt is just now going to have to win at Georgetown and at Marquette. Washington is coming on Saturday and we need to come out and make a statement. Hawes is going to cause Gray problems down low. Somebody is going to have to step up and score or we might get more of last night.
Everybody enjoy your Valentine’s Day with that special someone or just do what I’m doing watching the Pens game and acting like last night didn’t happen. I’m out.
