While the NFL playoffs are taking hold this weekend there is another team taking over the Steel City. The Pitt basketball team is off to amazing start and they are in the top 25. After missing the NCAA tournament last season they have been concerns about Head Coach Jamie Dixon and his recruiting. His grinding out style that worked so well in the Big East may not work out in the Atlantic Coast Conference. He opened up the offense and the team is also making free throws, and doing it without giving up playing defense and rebounding the trademarks of Dixon’s past success with the team. Despite the loss to Louisville on Thursday, the Panthers have a good chance to win the ACC title this season. As far as the NCAA Tournament and how they can go that is a question they will answer by how much success they have from now until Selection Sunday.
