Pittsburgh cover streak came to an end this week but it ran its winning streak to two with a two-point victory over Boston College.
The Panthers were eleven-point favorites so BC made the cover with ease but Pitt is now 4–4 in conference play and right in the middle of the ACC standings.
But three consecutive home games (overtime loss and cover against Louisville, win and cover against UNC and win and ATS loss to BC) are finished and now its two in a row on the road, starting in Syracuse and finishing at Duke.
This will be Pitt’s first of two against the Orange this season with a game in Pittsburgh scheduled for the end of February.
Outside shooting is always key to taking down the ‘Cuse and Pittsburgh ranks 301 in Division I with a .305 mark from outside as a team. The other thing that can kill a zone is the offensive glass and Pittsburgh does better with that. It ranks 58th with 228 offensive rebounds on the season.
Syracuse has won four in a row, starting with its win at Virginia back on January 11. Its last two victories were both on the road, by two points, first against Virginia Tech and then Notre Dame.
Now the ‘Cuse is 4–3 in the conference with four out of its next five games at the Carrier Dome. Whether or not it takes advantage will go a long way in determining where it finishes in the regular season standings and, likely, whether or not it sneaks into the NCAA Tournament.
In recent memory, Syracuse has been a bubble team but when it gets in, it makes noise as a high seed because of its defense and elite level athletes.
The defense has been great again this season. The Orange is holding its opponents to under forty percent from the field, both in the non-conference and ACC play.
It doesn’t force many turnovers but it doesn’t allow easy looks (speaking to the field goal percentage numbers) and keeps opponents off the line, primarily because it just isn’t easy to penetrate the zone.
