Pitt needs a healthy Tray Woodall at the point (Debby Wong-US PRESSWIRE)
Some very good news last night from Post-Gazette beat-writer Ray Fittipaldo via Twitter:
Woodall was hampered last season by a strained groin early in the season against Duquesne that eventually required off-season surgery. Pitt went 5-6 in the eleven games he sat out. He eventually returned to form, averaging seven assists and shooting over 48% in the CBI Tournament.
Woodall is infinitely important to Pitt's chances of returning to the NCAA Tournament this year. Even with incoming freshman James Robinson and John Johnson likely making the switch to full-time point guard, Pitt is again perilously thin at the spot. Woodall is still the only player on the team with meaningful game experience and having him back to 100% by the fall will be huge.
A great milestone on Woodall's road to recovery.
