Big win for Pitt last night. They definitely have the inside track on a #1 seed. I really enjoy watching them play. They aren't super talented, but they play together and are TOUGH and extremely well-coached. I really hope they make a run to the Final Four this year. They deserve it. DeJuan Blair was a monster last night. 22 points and 23 boards. Wow.
The Big East MVP race is going to be very interesting this year. Do you go with a guy like Blair who has been dominant on a great team or a guy like Harangody who has the big time stats??
As for UConn, what are the lingering effects of this Jerome Dyson ACL injury?? How do they replace him?? I thought UConn was the best team in the country before Dyson got hurt, but that is a huge loss for them. That 3-headed monster of Price-Dyson-Walker is suddenly not quite as talented. I'll be curious to see how UConn adjusts to playing without Dyson for the rest of the year.
