Pitt played one of its best games of the season Jan. 26 against DePaul, stomping the Blue Demons by 38 points. Then two days later, the Panthers played one of their worst games of the season in a 64-61 loss at Louisville.
The Panthers have another short turnaround this week and coach Jamie Dixon would like to see his players handle the situation better.
After an emotion victory over No. 6 Syracuse Saturday, the Panthers play host to Seton Hall tonight at the Petersen Events Center.
“We’ll see,” Dixon said. “I don’t think we played up to our standards [at Louisville]. It’s unique that we’ve had so many of these quick turnarounds and we just have to be ready. We have to focus on Seton Hall.”
This is the second of three Saturday-Monday turnarounds. The next is in two weeks when the Panthers play at Marquette and then come home to play host to Notre Dame.
“We have to come out and play with the same aggressiveness [tonight],” Dixon said.
