Pitt vs. North Carolina: Open Gamethread

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

Pitt faces North Carolina at noon today in a rematch from a game played earlier this month. The Panthers won that game, 73-65, with a second-half surge that saw them score 45 points in the final 20 minutes.

As I wrote in the preview, I don’t expect to see the same type of production distribution as in that first game when Pitt’s bench did not score while Trey McGowens, Xavier Johnson, and Justin Champagnie scored a combined 63 points. If the team is going to win again today, I expect others will have to step up.
