Day 3 of the Big East Tournament kicks off on Thursday afternoon, and Pittsburgh takes to the court for the first time. The Panthers are laying 2.5-points, but we aren’t all that sure that that’s justifiable. The Panthers have had a great year, but we aren’t all that keen to their overall body of work at the moment. Sure, they have won four straight games, but they haven’t beaten one of the big boys in the Big East since February 2nd, which ironically came against this Syracuse outfit. Meanwhile, we’re wondering if the Orange haven’t found their way. They looked terrible in the first several minutes against the Seton Hall Pirates before turning on the jets in the second half and putting the game away without really all that much of a fight. It was a great game for F James Southerland, and a solid one as well for both G Brandon Triche and F CJ Fair. And to think… G Michael Carter-Williams and F Rakeem Christmas were guys that hardly had their names called during the game. This is a scary, scary Syracuse team, and we think that it is going to roll right along to the semifinals on Thursday afternoon at the expense of an overrated U-Pitt outfit.
