Recapping St. John's

As expected, Pitt was able to put away St. John's on Sunday. Although, the team sure did make some people nervous in the first half.

For a while, it looked as if the first No. 1 ranking in school history would last one week. That's how badly Pitt played for stretches of the first half of its Big East Conference home opener yesterday against St. John's.


Eventually, though, they wore them down - winning their first game with the #1 ranking. St. John's coach Norm Roberts may have said it best when he described the game-changing player:

"A Mack Truck," he said. "DeJuan Blair is an absolute beast. It seems like his mindset is, 'I'm going to get the ball.' We got physically worn down."

I'm not going to overload this post with a bunch of comments - I pretty much did that yesterday. But this was a strong win over a conference foe with an 8-day layoff - all in all, a nice victory...even though we did manage to turn the ball over way too much.

Surprisingly, afterwards, Pitt held onto its number one ranking in both polls...although Wake Forest managed to seemingly get the remaining UNC votes from both polls. *cough* Homerism *cough*
