Pitt looks to rebound after a tough loss on Monday night

NCAA Basketball: Duquesne at Pittsburgh Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

Opponent: west virginia mountaineers

Conference: Big 12

Current Record: 5-3 (0-0)

Last Game: Nov 30, L 75-79 vs Florida (N)

2017 Season: 26-11 (11-7) 2nd

Key Losses: G Jevon Carter (17.3 ppg, 4.6 rpg, 6.6 apg, graduation), G Daxter Miles (12.9 ppg, graduation)

Key Returnees: F Sagaba Konate (10.8 ppg, 3.2 bpg), F Esa Ahmad (10.2 ppg)

The loss of Carter and Miles hurts. The intensity of “Press Virginia” has died down considerably without those two defenders.

Last Meeting: Dec 9, 2017 Pitt 60, wvu 69

What we said in the recap: “Typically I’m not much of a moral victories kind of guy. But this season, that’s changing and you have to look more about how much they improve over the course of the year and less to the actual win-loss results.”

Prediction: Pitt will be winning 13-9 at one point and it will be funny.

Hail to Pitt.
