I usually give a statistical perspective of the games but last night doesn’t need any stats to back up the game. We played our best offensive game of the year and did enough on the other end to shut down James. Fitzgerald killed us but it wasn’t enough to get Marquette over the hump. Gray and Fields played great last night but so did the entire team.
Hearing “LETS GO PITT” resonating through Madison Square Garden was an experience that I will never forget. The 50 or so students made a ridiculous amount of noise the entire game. Every chant extended through the entire shot clock on both ends. The Zoo really showed up even in a smaller form.
Tonight is Louisville and if they played like they did against WVU we can beat them. I watched the entire Louisville-WVU game and save the first 10 minutes Louisville didn’t look all that impressive. If we can play good basketball early we can jump out to a lead and put this game away.
New York is great and I’m having the time of my life.
