Opponent: Arkansas-Pine Bluff

Conference: SWAC

Current Record: 0-4

Last Game: Nov 19 51-62 L @Kansas State

2018 Season: 13-19 (10-8) 3rd

Key Losses: G Martaveous McKnight (20.8 ppg 5.0 rpg)

Top Players: F Shaun Doss (12.3 ppg, 3.0 rpg), F Marquell Carter (11.0 ppg, 6.5 rpg)

The Golden Lions lost First Team All-SWAC guard McKnight to graduation. He scored over 1300 points in only two years so the offense is suffering greatly in his absence. Pitt should win this game, but Pine Bluff played Kansas State tough on Tuesday night (they were tied at halftime) so who knows? Pitt’s favored by over 20, but if the shooting woes continue it’ll be closer than that.

Prediction: Pitt 70 Pine Bluff 54

Hail to Pitt
