    This never seems to end as well as hoped, but I think I take UC with the points. The win itself, slim chance. Pitt has won something like 19 in a row at home, even though UC seemed to play them very tough last year, even taken the game at the Shoe.

    Anyone here give them much of a chance tonight?
    Well right now we are not getting any National Tv Time with the texas colorado game going into overtime Anythings possible as long as we stay positive and we continue playing the way we have.. Pitt up 6-2 right now !

    This just in, Pitt is really really good.
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    Re: UC Basketball

    What happened today is what I expected, but this loss doesn't really hurt UC at all (their RPI will probably go up even after today's loss). We just have to save face by taking at least one of the next three games to give ourselves a chance.

    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.

    I won't say I was impressed by UC, but they did play a Final 4 quality team at their place and did a credible job.

    Careless turnovers in the first half doomed them. They did make a nice run at Pitt in the second half, but you just can't spot a team like Pitt all those gimme points in the first half and expect to win.

    I think UC continues to learn what it takes to win in the Big East and show improvement.

    Pay attention to the open sky

    Are you gonna be there, Matt?
    If you can't build a winning team with that core a fire-sale isn't the solution. Selling the franchise, moving them to Nashville and converting GABP into a used car lot is.

    Pitt is good but UConn isn't the same after losing Jerome Dyson

    Re: UC Basketball

    Georgetown won on the road in South Florida tonight, and while that's not exactly a marquee win, it gives the Hoyas another Big East win and makes UC's sweep look a bit better (a Georgetown loss would have been disaster).

    Louisville beat Providence, which was very nice to see. UC needs the Friars to stumble down the stretch. I'd have liked to have seen Notre Dame beat West Virginia, but the Mountaineers took that game.

    Some other notable games:
    • Florida State beat Miami (FL), which should help UC.
    • Mississippi State currently has a slim lead over South Carolina in the 2nd half. All UC fans need to be rooting hard for the Bulldogs.
    • UAB and Tulane are tied in the 2nd half. UAB's a bubble team as well, but UC beat UAB in the non-conference. We need UAB to pull this one out, because the main point against UC right now is we haven't beat many tourney teams this year.
    • UNLV plays at Wyoming tonight. UNLV is a bubble team as well, but the UAB theory applies here as well: we need UNLV to do well so UC has another nice win to showcase.
    • One game that may hurt UC is Penn State winning on the road in Illinois.


    EDIT: Both Mississippi State and UAB pulled out wins tonight, which is good for UC.

    Re: UC Basketball

    Tomorrow's game is HUGE. We have had a week to prepare, and we are coming off a bad loss at the hands of a team that's probably one of the top three in the nation. We need to pull off the win tomorrow, and show that we are finally back!

    Re: UC Basketball

    I'll be curious to see what effect the week off had. It could be positive or negative. Obviously I'm hoping for the former and the week serves as a re-charging to vault them into the homestretch and into the tournament.

    Re: UC Basketball

    Cincy played well and was actually a better team than I thought. Mitchell did a terrific job of hitting threes to break up the Louisville runs. As many have said, they're still a year away but that's not to say they're not a good team this year. If they would have caught this team when TWill was injured the game would have likely been much more in doubt.

    Just to brag a bit, Terrence Williams has become an amazing basketball player. He has gone from one of the most frustrating players to an all-time Louisville fan favorite in less than a year. Its amazing to see how Pitino has transformed him into a nearly unstoppable force with an all around game.

    Re: UC Basketball

    This game was lost on the boards. The Cats had too many chances to pull down the rebounds, and they let loserville scoop them up. We had some good shooting, though we could not break the press. That will be cleared up with Cash next year. Neither Yancy of Samardo really impressed me today. Both were physical, though Samardo probably was a bit more physical. I spent a lot of my time watching the plays off the ball, and there was an awful lot of fouls that were not called on Louisville. Probably not enough for us to have won, but it would be nice for this team to get some calls now and then.

    Now you sound like UK fans. The officials didn't call many fouls period (14-11 advantage to UofL) and that goes both ways. Louisville shot more free throws but that is directly related to UC shooting 27 threes while UofL played more in the paint. Several times UofL players got mobbed in the lane and it wasn't called for them either. You played well but got beat by a superior team.
