The Backyard Brawl – Basketball

Pitt 79 – Wvu 67

Well, we didn’t win.  I thought before this game our lack of an inside presence may be our downfall, it was.  We were able to keep it close, but with a Sam Young and a DeJuan Blair, the Mountaineers could not keep up. 

DeSean Butler had 21 points and Alex Ruoff added 16.  Pitts bench also outscored ours 13-6.  Pitt outrebounded us 28-22. 

Below are quotes from Bob Huggins:

“They got us out of doing what kept us in the game in the first half”

“I felt we could rebound as long as we moved them. You can’t have those big, wide bodies stand in the lane. We just got down and tried to stop them in the lane and that is a recipe for disaster.”

“We gave Sam some open looks and he made them”


Enough said, we lost.  Lets move on to get prepared for Saint John’s.
