Here's what coach Fran McCaffery had to say about the Panthers on Monday.
"Pittsburgh's the best team I've seen so far on our schedule," McCaffery said. "They're deep, they're big. They have experience. They really execute extremely well, which you would expect with a senior point guard like Levance Fields."
Pitt is 10-0 and their closest game was a 13-point victory over Texas Tech.
They have a great frontline in 6-foot-6 Sam Young and 6-7 DeJuan Blair.
Young averages 20.6 points and 5.9 rebounds and Blair, who McCaffery called one of the best rebounders he's ever seen, is averaging 14.6 points and 12.8 reboudns (5.9 offensive rebounds per game).
Also, I'll have more on this but I will be hosting a live forum right here on my blog while the Pitt game is going on for anyone who can't make it down to the Petersen Events Center.
Feel free to come by around 9 p.m. on Wednesday and we'll be talking all Siena.
