Video: Dixon Set For Opener

Pitt has won its last 15 season-openers, including a 9-0 record by Jamie Dixon. Pitt is 72-33 all-time in season-openers.

Jamie Dixon dispels the notion that there isn't more of a focus on turnovers this season as opposed to previous seasons.

What is different is Dixon having two freshmen in the starting lineup, which we will see right off the bat as James Robinson will start at guard, with Steven Adams at center. Dixon says Robinson's defensive abilities are ahead of where most freshmen would be. He also says that while Adams needs some work on his defense, having him and Dante Taylor--who will see time at both the four and the five this year--will ultimately be good for Pitt's inside presence.
