Barely passable will just not cut it at the Big Dance. Beyond solid ball-handling, the Panthers are mediocre at best in all other aspects of the game.
Despite ending with a 21-win season, nine of their 11 losses came from their daunting ACC rivals. Many critics would argue that Pittsburgh earned its March Madness bid simply because of the tough opposition the team had to overcome this season, and we also agree to that notion.
The Panthers have taken care of teams that they were expected to beat, yet have also failed to consistently put up good fights against college top-tier programs.
