Jamie Dixon has a big challenge ahead of him this weekend. Part of it is obviously facing Maryland, a road ACC game. Within that challenge, finding a way to beat the same team twice.
The Panthers best the Terps a little over two weeks ago by 20. Dixon points out that game was a one-point game at the end of the first half.
Within the challenge of facing Maryland, Dixon must keep his team focused on Saturday's game before Pitt turns around to host Duke on Monday night.
Dixon and James Robinson point out the added challenge of facing Seth Allen, who was just working his way back into the lineup the last time these two teams played. Allen has averaged 10.3 points a game since his return, and poses more of a scoring threat.
