Tray Woodall heating up for Panthers

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sport

This has gone a bit under the radar because we've been mostly concerned about how the team is doing as a whole. But Tray Woodall is really starting to heat up for Pitt and is playing well right now.

Woodall gets a lot of criticism - many times for his shot selection. But he's been Pitt's best player over the past couple of months and is a big reason the team is having some success.

The guard has been in double figures each of the past eight games and he's never had a streak that long. Over those games, he's also shooting just over 50%. And while the rest of the team has floundered at the free throw line, Woodall's been solid there, making 80% of his attempts in the past eight games. And while his assists are down just a bit, his rebounding is up.

And for a guy who has taken a lot of flak for taking bad shots, Woodall is at 48% on the season. He's had some ups and downs, but has been largely reliable. How far Pitt goes in the tournament will largely depend on him. Pitt can win if he struggles, but not consistently. I'm not a fan of every shot Woodall takes, but there's little question he's the leader of this team. Overall, he's had a pretty good senior season.
