Pretty hard to beat a MACC team committing 21 turnovers, let alone a talented ACC team on the road. Reggie stated on the pregame interview that the team so far has poor ANTICIPATION on the court. I saw countless examples of just that in the game. Lazy passes intercepted for fast break layups. Attempted cross court passes ,with little chance of success ,intercepted easily. Passes into a crowd. In the first 8 minutes of the second half, they had 9 turnovers!!! At the time, they had a senior and 3 juniors on the court. Anyone wonder why they lost? Those are lost points when you are shooting 50 per cent from the field. Got to clean that up.Go Griffs.

Actually Hitchon had a decent game other then a bad shooting game. Without him out there Pitt would of had a lot more points. Where are the White haters today hmm. Another solid game from White. I'm actually glad that Hitchon doesn't seem too concerned with his personal points. That's when guys just start firing up shots to up their average. Usually at the teams expense, resulting in a loss. Or is being a team player more important then getting as many points as possible each game. They just lost a couple guys that were more concerned with personal stats than wins. Things are looking good for MAAC play. Beat Manhattan!! Go Griffs!

Maybe look at the box score from the only game since the Buffalo game, it was at Siena. Some people want to be negative I guess. Hitchon was second in team scoring last game with 15 points 3 rebs, 5 ast, 1 blk, 1 stl. Third in scoring last game was Harried with 8pts, 4th Johnson with 7pts. Agreed Hitchon lacked the scoring this game but to say he has been invisible since Buffalo is asinine. What I meant earlier when I said Pitt would of had a lot more points. I don't think the Griffs would of covered the 14.5 pts spread without Hitchon today. Not that Pitt would necessarily of scored 7,8,9,10 more points. Just the game wouldn't of been as close as it was, IMO. Turnovers killed them today. Beat Manhattan! Go Griffs!

I hope we can transfer all of these learnings with wins in the MAAC.

Tough to keep losing games when it’s right their for the taking. You can’t miss key free throws and keep turning the ball over.
