Good game
Pitt played well but I was impressed with VT OL and DL

Agreed
He’s small and shifty. He reminds me of Addison but hasn’t had the calls go his way to your point. He could give us fits

Robinson IMO is VT biggest threat if you focus on Turner; he’s had 3 TDs
Waved off..one with toe on line, one disputed scoop catch that was ruled a TD on field by one ref then ruled by another no catch then call stood as no catch when they couldn’t distinguish his gloves from the end zone ugly
Dark blue in Morgantown’s end zone, then another called back for ineligible man 4 yds downfield walking parallel to line of scrimmage on the far left hash while he was catching TD in back right of end zone vs ND

Pitt at VT
Burmeister is their leading rusher. Need to contain him. Turner is a solid WR. That’s their offense.

Pitt at Tennessee
DreamBackfield will be at the game this Saturday. Expect a tight, hard-fought game.

Pitt will probably miss a few field goals and XPs. It may cost the Panthers the game.

U16 media timeout, second half: Pitt leads 55-34
Plenty of storylines for the game so far. Champagnie the star with 17 points and 8 rebounds; Johnson close behind with 13 points and 7 assists.

Horton is heating up from three, as he's got 12 points on 4-for-9 from deep. If he can be a consistent threat for Pitt from downtown, they will be a hard team to defend.

HALFTIME: Pitt leads Northern Illinois 45-29
HALFTIME: Pitt leads Northern Illinois 45-29, opening up the Panthers' most comfortable lead of the season. Champagnie (15), Johnson (13), and Toney (9) have 37 of Pitt's 45 points.

Also of note, the Big Three looks more like a Core Four (TM) tonight. Johnson, Champagnie, Toney, Horton have combined for 68 of Pitt's 100 minutes tonight. The other five players to check in have 32 total minutes (Coulibaly with 11).

Pitt leads by seven at the U8 media timeout, 29-22, 7:55 to go in the half
They're looking great right now on the offensive end. Shooting 50% from the floor, 10 assists to just one turnover. Great effort so far.

Terrell Brown checks into tonight's game right before the U8 media timeout after not getting into the Drexel game. He immediately gets up to get a nice offensive rebound. Putback attempt is blocked, but it remains Pitt ball coming out of the timeout.

U12 media timeout, Pitt leads Northern Illinois 23-18, with 11:31 to go
And the Panthers are shooting the ball well thus far. Five for 10 on three-point attempts this far. Pitt has also amassed eight assists to just one turnover to this point, which is a great start for the home team.

They've played a very clean game offensively to this point, but have just a five point lead. Northern Illinois shooting 67 percent from the floor early on.

Pitt takes on Northern Illinois at the Petersen Events Center tonight at 7 p.m., as the Panthers look to improve to 2-1 on the young season. Pitt starts Xavier Johnson, Ithiel Horton, Justin Champagnie, Au'Diese Toney, and Abdoul Karim Coulibaly, the same group that started Pitt's 83-74 win over Drexel a week ago.

FINAL: Pitt falls to Saint Francis, 80-70.
Defensively, Pitt shaped up in a big way for the second half, but it wasn't enough. With no clear number one shooter in crunch time, defense could only get them so far.

The Panthers will be back in action on Saturday when they take on Drexel at the Pete.

Final media timeout, Pitt trails 72-61 with 2:50 to go in this one.
Pitt's defense improved a lot in the tail end of the second half but it has been too little, too late. They would need a minor miracle to come back and win this one.

Still, lots of notable bits from tonight's game. One of the biggest stories, in my view? 17 minutes so far for William Jeffress, who has largely looked pretty good. Five points, three boards, a steal, and an assist so far.

Another takeaway? He may not have the highest ceiling, but Terrell Brown is Pitt's most reliable center (for now). In 10 minutes, he's put up five points (2-for-5 shooting), two blocks, and two rebounds. Hugley will probably be the better big man when all is said and done, but he's had a rough debut: seven points on 3-for-10 shooting, four turnovers (though he's done a nice job on the boards with eight rebs).

Saint Francis timeout with 8:24 to go, Pitt trails 61-49.
Pitt's defense has looked fantastic for the past five or six minutes. At one point, they had forced shot clock violations on three straight possessions. They haven't allowed a bucket in 5:16 of game play.

Will they be able to bridge the gap with their offense?

U12 media timeout, Pitt trails 61-45 with 11:27 to go.
Heading into the break, Pitt had four freshmen on the floor--Collier, Hugley, Jeffress, and Odukale. Toney is the only upperclassman.

Tells you what Capel thinks about this incoming class, and regardless of the result tonight, that's a good thing long-term for Pitt.

With the four freshmen on the floor, Pitt strings together perhaps its best two defensive possessions of the evening: (1) forcing a turnover by Saint Francis, followed by (2) forcing a shot clock violation.

It's as bad as the score indicates at the Pete. The Panthers look sloppy, and they ran into a buzz saw in SFU who is putting up ridiculous numbers from deep (9-for-18 so far).

Still, there's no reason to overreact to one game. Pitt seems to do this annually against a bad team. In 2018, Pitt lost to Niagara; last year, Pitt lost a bad one to Nicholls State. Is it a motivation issue against the OOCs? Hard to say. But it's happened with some regularity.

Halftime, Pitt trails 46-33
Toney is the only reason that Pitt is in this game thus far--15 points on 6-for-7 shooting. Everyone else has struggled, including Xavier Johnson, who has the same number of turnovers as points (six).

Capel hasn't found a big man that he can count on offensively yet, as Hugley, Coulibaly, and Brown combined for five points on 2-for-7 shooting in the first half.

Pitt's frontcourt depth is something of an improvement over years past, with at least three usable big men in 2020-21, and possibly four depending on Amadasun's development. Still, especially against ACC opponents, without the ability to rely on them as scoring options, Pitt will struggle. They've had the same issues shooting from deep as they've had the past couple of seasons, and not being able to rely on inside scoring exacerbates that issue greatly.

Final timeout of the first half, Pitt trails 36-26
Very sloppy start for Pitt, though there's been a certain element of seeing what everybody on the bench has in thank. The Panthers have played 10 players so far. Toney has been the star for Pitt, with 10 points, four rebounds, and two steals in the half so far.

For Saint Francis, its Myles Thompson leading all Red Flash scorers with nine points of 4-for-7 shooting. He also has three rebounds, an assist, and a steal.

U8 media timeout
Pitt still trails by eight with 7:59 to go in the half, 27-19 Red Flash lead. Toney has 10 of Pitt's 19 points on 4-for-5 shooting.

Still, Pitt has trailed for the last 11 minutes and seven Saint Francis players have scored in the first half so far. They've spread the ball around well, and Pitt has struggled to keep up defensively.
