One Last Chance

Pittsburgh's chances at a NCAA Tournament bid are nearly non-existent, and a run to an ACC title in Greensboro this weekend is the only thing that can resuscitate them.

Two weeks ago Pittsburgh looked like a team destined for the NCAA Tournament, despite only two road wins and a few bad losses. Then the Panthers collapsed.

At the worst possible time, Pitt dropped its last three games to Wake Forest (RPI 135), Miami (61) and Florida State (117) which knocked out any chance the Panthers had of playing their way into the Big Dance in the regular season. Now, one alternative remains: win the ACC Tournament.

Despite the abysmal regular-season finish, the Panthers haven't counted themselves out by any measure.

"I think we can win the tournament, easy," Jamel Artis said. "We’ve just gotta come down to the little things, rebounding and defense."

And from fellow sophomore forward Mike Young, "We’re confident that we can win it. We feel like if we win it that will give us a spot in the NCAAs."

But those "little things" Artis mentioned are the reasons why the Panthers face this current predicament.

Pitt's rebounding margin of plus-3.1 ranked in the middle of the ACC pack, and is an uncharacteristically low number for a Jamie Dixon-coached team. And the defense, the hallmark of Dixon's program, allowed opponents to shoot 44.9 percent from the field this season--the second-worst mark in the league, a tenth of a percent behind Wake Forest for last place.

But even Dixon admits that it becomes a "whole new season" once the conference tournaments begin and anything can happen, regardless of history. Take, for instance, Pitt's loss to UConn in the 2011 Big East Tournament before receiving a No. 1-seed in the NCAA Tournament or more recently, last-place Furman making a run to the Southern Conference title game before falling to Wofford.

"I know there’s a sense in our guys that they’re looking forward to the opportunity for the tournament, looking forward to playing their best basketball," Dixon said.

As multiple players said before they departed for Greensboro Monday, everybody is 0-0 with a clean slate. A slate that most importantly erases the three-game losing streak.

"You lose, you dwell on the games for a few hours and then you’ve just gotta worry about the next game and worry about the next opponent," Young said. "It’s not really hard to kind of move on when you’re fighting for a chance at the NCAA Tournament."

That losing streak has the Panthers wanting to wash the bad taste out of their mouth and show they're better than that three-game stretch.

"It’s a gut check," senior Cameron Wright said. "We’re going to see how much heart we really have."

Pitt faced a similar situation at last year's tournament, although not quite as dire. But an upset win over North Carolina helped punch a ticket to the Big Dance.

This season, there's just a tad more work to be done at the Greensboro Coliseum than beating one good team. But all the Panthers want to do is take the onus of their postseason hopes off their shoulders.

"Anything can happen right now," Artis said. "We go in here and we make a big run, we make them make the decision."
