Pitt Loses to Louisville, 94-60

PITTSBURGH — At one point, there was hope.

Pitt hasn’t won a basketball game since ACC play began in late December and that trend continued on Sunday with a 94-60 loss to Louisville at Petersen Events Center.

A few weeks ago, Pitt lost back-to-back games to North Carolina State and Syracuse by a combined nine points and it looked like the Panthers’ young players were getting better.

Since then, Pitt has lost its last four games by an average margin of 25.75 points per game.

The Panthers were dominated inside by the lengthy Cardinals. Seven-footer Anas Mahmoud had 14 points, five rebounds and two blocks. Six-foot-11 center Malik Williams had 14 points and four rebounds. Six-foot-10 forward Ray Spalding had eight points and six rebounds. The Cardinals scored 44 points in the paint.

Louisville did it all without staring forward and leading scorer Deng Adel.

Pitt starting center Terrell Brown went 0 for 7 with six rebounds. Peace Ilegomah and Kene Chukwuka combined to go 2 for 6 with six rebounds. Pitt scored 22 points in the paint.

The Panthers also didn’t shoot well from the outside, going 7 of 30 from 3-point range for a 23.3 percent mark.

Shamiel Stevenson scored 15 points and had five rebounds as the lone bright spot for the Panthers, which fell to 0-13 in ACC play.

Pitt hosts Boston College on Tuesday.

I know that this team is young and has a few good players, but to lose every ACC game is an all time low. Yes, these are Freshman and first time Div. 1 players but is the worst Pitt team I have seen in the last 40 years. No inside game, no fight, no mental or physical toughness. Coach Stallings has to definitely bring in better bigs. I still think Nix would have helped.
