My thoughts exactly.
I was really impressed by Pitt today. With Dyson going down for the year, Pitt looks like class of the Big East. They're an incredibly sound team. Levance Fields does a great job protecting the ball and setting up his teammates, Blair is a load in the paint and Sam Young is a big time player.
IMHO they look like a final four team and UC held their own for about 30 minutes. Not a bad performance.
If UC is able to regroup and take one of the next three and take the final two games against USF and Seton Hall they've got a legitimate shot to make the tourney.
