Noon tipoff today at the Pete.
Pitt (14-4, 2-3 Big East) coming off a big road win at Villanova on Wednesday
Uconn (12-4, 2-2 Big East) coming off a 15-point loss to top-ranked Louisville
Uconn is the worst rebounding team in the Big East.
Uconn is disqualified from the NCAA AND the Big East Tourney
Nice block by Adams.
Nice pull-up jumper by Woodall in transition.
Nice offensive rebound and put-back by Adams. And Zanna looks really good today.
Uconn has 1 field goal in the first 5 minutes
It looks like Zeigler has taken Wright's spot as the first 2 guard off the bench
Ziegler looks more confident but when he misses it really looks ugly. Glad to see him attack the rim early though. We need a guard to take people off the dribble to the hoop
Dixon has been saying Pitt is not finishing, we saw that a few times already this game, you can't miss layups and tipins
Looking good on the offensive boards early but I'm worried about Woodall being gone for the rest of the half
Dixon is using his athletic lineup , zeigler, moore, some durand mixed in
What sort of absolute horse garbage offensive foul call was that on Adams?
Love that they are being aggressive. Pushing the ball when they can and looking to score
10 to 3 FT so far. Horse poop calls on pitt
A "Real PITT MAN"............get off my porch!
He really gets victimized by the refs. Unfortunate, because I think it really frustrates him and forces him to be more tentative on both offense and defense.
Yup really like the combos hes using. Love Adams being agressive on the offensive end
Yeah, and that simply isn't his fault. He simply gets called sometimes because he is 7 feet, and really no other reason. There was zero reason to call that last foul on him.
It really changes the whole game for him when he gets a ticky tack horrible call against him.
how did adams get called, he was getting hacked
This kid can't even set a pick without getting whistled. AWFUL!

Adams out after two cheap fouls....
Meanwhile, Uconn players come flying in over 3 Pitt players back from the free throw line and no call.
Pretty lopsided officiating wise right now.
Now Robinson not finishing,
Great defensive hustle, good job following on the break, and good rebounding. Great way to finish the half. Would have been nice to hit the free throw.
By far, best half of the year collectively for the team. Just about everyone making contributions. They all just look like they are playing with more confidence. Lets hope this continues
Adams needs better hands. Loses to many rebounds.
That is really what you came away with from the first half....he played like an absolute best in that half. Just his presence inside changed the game....and that is what you got. He lost maybe 2 rebounds..but still had 7 boards, 3pts, and 3 blocks.
Pitt is outrebounding Uconn 23-15
zanna leads with 7 points in only 11 minutes
patterson, robinson, and zeig with 5 points each
Pitt committed 7 turnovers in the first half, that is high for them,
adams with 7 rebounds already, and he has 3 points
napier with 5 is leading Uconn
pitt is shooting 15-31 , 2-6 from 3
Uconn is shooting 7-24, 2-11 from 3!!!
btw, Pitt is having another banner night at the free throw line, - 3 for 8
Good half. Need to come out strong and step on Connecticut to start. Don't let them gain any confidence. Pitt's legs really looked fresh. That win at Villanova seemed to up the team's confidence.
