The Eagles hit the road for the next one, this time traveling to Pitt, where they will be searching their first ACC road win since 2015. After a massive win against Miami, traveling to play a winless ACC team has all the makings of a trap game.

Keys to the Game

Win. Jim Christian needs to have his team ready to play in this one. Christian pointed to his team’s desire to reach the NCAA tournament and well, quite frankly, if his squad can’t get it done against Pitt, then they don’t deserve to be there anyway. Ky Bowman and Jerome Robinson need to put this one away quickly. They cannot play down to their competition. They need to win.

Pitt’s Strengths

They’re leading the conference in losses.

Panther To Watch

Jared Wilson-Frame is their leading scorer at 12.8 PPG while also averaging 3.6 rebounds per game.

Predictions

Matt: 78-60 BC

Toppin: 82-70 BC. This is one they can’t afford to lose

Katie: 79-71 BC
