2014 ACC Tournament: Pitt vs. Virginia Preview and Open Gamethread

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sport

Pitt's third game in the NCAA Tournament is today against Virginia. After wins against North Carolina and Wake Forest, the Panthers get a second crack at the Cavaliers, one of the teams that beat them this season.

I'm not sure about Pitt's chances and while they're playing extremely well right now, a third straight game in three days just can't be all that easy. This game could be another knockdown drag out fight and we'll have to see if Pitt is rested enough to play. This game is even an earlier start than the Tar Heels game and Pitt is coming off of less than 20 hours of rest here.

For once, I'll actually get a chance to catch the game - though, let's be honest ... with two Pitt wins in games I didn't watch, maybe I should take this one off.
