Wagner 59, Pitt 54: Panthers Get Major Wake Up Call

10th consecutive NCAA Tournament? Not at this rate.

Just all around ugly in this one. I don't know what is with this team. Maybe they're missing Travon Woodall more than I thought, but I never thought that I would see a Pitt team lack heart. This showing today is a wake up call for the team. They are young, but they also should never have been in this position in the first place. On defense they appeared disinterested. On offense, they let Wagner dictate the flow of the game. Both are complete opposites of what you would expect of a Jamie Dixon coached team. They were sloppy with the ball, shot poorly, and couldn't hit their free throws.

Ashton Gibbs' shooting woes continued for another game. He couldn't break free of Wagner guard Kenneth Ortiz, who did a great job of shutting him down, going 0-7 in the first half and 5-15 overall.

I don't know what else to say. This season is looking rougher and rougher with each game. And Big East play starts next week. Fantastic.
