Leap of Faith

Every 4 years there is a leap day on February 29th and speaking of leaps, the Pitt basketball team took a big leap forward with a win over Duke on Sunday afternoon.   With the 76 to 62 victory the Panthers have 20 wins on the season and it improves their chances on to getting into the NCAA Tournament.  They have two games left on the road against Virginia Tech on Wednesday night and Georgia Tech on Saturday afternoon, plus the ACC Tournament in Washington D.C starting next Tuesday.  I feel the Panthers have done enough to make the big dance in March and now they have to get on the roll.   They were able to rebound and play defense well the hallmarks of their past success under Jamie Dixon.  If they could do that on a consistent level they could be a force in the ACC and NCAA Tournament.
