I admit it, it's going to be tough for Pitt to win this game. If I had to pick a winner, I'd expect Nova to come out on top. Pitt will be without Ashton Gibbs again and playing on a court where they rarely win. They've lost their last six games there, so none of the team's current players have ever won there.
Still, Pitt will have a chance because, well, they're Pitt. This is what they do. They win games you don't expect them to and they will beat the other team to a bloody pulp, regardless of the outcome.
So come 9:00 p.m., I won't be surprised by anything.
