Pitt vs. Duquesne: Open Gamethread

Pitt returns to the City after facing Texas Tech and Stanford at The Barclays in the Legends Classic games this week. The Panthers get a down Duquesne team today, but shouldn't let their guard down. As I wrote earlier in the preview, the Dukes have a bit of offense under their belts and jack up 20 three-pointers a game. That much shooting has the potential to derail even good teams.

Jamie Dixon's got to have the guys ready today and make sure their heads don't get too big after those games earlier in the week. Enjoying the press clippings too closely before playing a weaker team that shoots a lot can be a recipe for disaster. I don't expect Pitt to lose, but the Dukes have given the Panthers some challenges over the years when they weren't supposed to.
