    #4 Pitt @ #1 UConn (2/16/09)

    Should be a great one. Starts at 7 on ESPN. I am picking Pitt to win this one. They want to prove that they are the team to beat in the Big East and are on the brink of capturing one of the four number one seeds in the tourney.

    Hopefully, something happens either way so WVU can take some more wins in the Big East.

    DeJuan Blair is a beast. He's averaging almost six offensive rebounds per game although he does need to cut down on the fouls. In the two games Pittsburgh lost this year he was limited to only 10 pts and under 20 minutes because of fouls. In the game against Rutgers earlier this year they almost lost because he was in trouble. If he could have stayed out of foul trouble in those games Pittsburgh would probably be looking at a perfect record right now.

    Agreed. Blair said in his postgame comments that he saw that a lot of big men don't put enough body on Thabeet and just let him have his way. Blair showed the perfect way to handle Thabeet. Also, Thabeet had not played against many legit big men this season. If he has to go up against Blake Griffin or Blair again, UConn will lose.
