Pittsburgh Panthers

The Panthers kicked off the season with a 12-8 run through their first 20 games. Pittsburgh would then beat Wake Forest, Notre Dame, NC State, Virginia and Louisville in the next five. Since then it’s been a 1-2 run with losses to Wake Forest and Clemson (and a win over Virginia Tech).

In the Clemson game, Pittsburgh came out of halftime with a 31-27 edge. The Panthers were outscored 42-31 the rest of the way however, resulting in a 69-62 loss. Pittsburgh’s Carlton Carrington put up a team-high 18 points with seven rebounds and three assists in 32 minutes of action.

Boston College Eagles

Over on the Boston College side, they got off to a spotty 11-8 start through 19 games. A 4-2 stretch came next with wins over Notre Dame, Syracuse, Louisville and Miami alongside losses to Florida State and Duke. Boston College would then lose to Florida State, NC State and Virginia in the next trio.

Back on Wednesday versus Virginia, the Eagles were trailing 27-23 in the locker room. Boston College kept the pace on a 45-45 run from there in a 72-68 defeat. Quinten Post was the leading team scorer with a double-double on 24 points, 10 rebounds and two assists.


I’ll stick with Pittsburgh. The Panthers need to show a little more life here than they did versus Clemson, however. Pittsburgh shot just 32.8 percent from the field and 28 percent from outside in that one while getting outmuscled on the boards 39-32. It was the second time in the last three games that the Panthers have scored fewer than 63 points.

As for Boston College, they’ve scored well over the last three games (all losses) but they’ve also given up 72 or more points in each. If the Eagles stay permissive on defense Saturday, we should have a high-scoring finish. I like Pittsburgh to power out the cover/win, but you could probably call it either way.
