When Pitt was winning Big East championships and going to NCAA tournaments the Panthers always found ways to win close games. Now they’re finding ways to lose close games.
It happened against Saturday afternoon when Marquette beat the Panthers, 74-67, in overtime at the Petersen Events Center.
Pitt was in position to win each game, but the Panthers could not come up with winning plays.
“When we need a stop we have to get a stop,” junior forward Lamar Patterson said. “When we need a rebound we have to get a rebound. In these losses it seems like whenever we need a big play we just didn’t come up with it. It’ll change. We’ve been working on it in practice. We just have to continue to work.”
The Panthers might be working in practice on their weaknesses, but the same issues continue to surface. Pitt has been outrebounded in all three losses. The Panthers have struggled to defend opposing guards in all three losses, and they have had issues with their offense in all three setbacks.
