Lamar Patterson is Pitt's leading rebounder, with 6.7 boards a game. He's also averaging 8.7 points a game in an average of 26.3 minutes through these first three games.
Though Patterson is fine being the leading rebounder, he feels one of the things holding Pitt back from establishing that inside presence that we've seen in years past is the lack of charge from the lineup when it's in there. In other words, as he explains it, there's a ball in the air--and everyone else in the game expects someone else to come up with the rebound. It's a minor lack of communication, but one that when it's fixed, will go a long way in fixing some of these early-season woes.
