PSN Poll: Which Team is Better Right Now, Pitt or Duquesne?
We have an interesting question for you to vote on today and it deals with the Pitt and Duquesne men’s basketball teams.
This is only a hypothetical since they won’t be playing on the court this season but now that we’re a month into the season, who do you believe is a better team in 2019?
After their win over VMI last night, Duquesne (7-0) is off to their best start in 40 years. Jeff Capel’s has now won 5 games in a row following their win Tuesday night over Rutgers.
Our question to you is, if they would play this season at a neutral site, who would win: Pitt or Duquesne?
This is a no brainer. The 7-0 record is a mirage. That schedule the Dukes are playing is rated 303 in strength of schedule on KenPom. They should be unbeaten. Pitt has played 5 power teams so far and owns a 4-1 record in those games heading into the game tomorrow. You can see growth in that team. Until Duquesne plays and beats Dayton,VCU, Rhode Island, Richmond etc. I think the jury is out on them being good
Who has consistently spoiled Duquesne’s preseason record over the last 40-years? Who hasn’t Duquesne played this year? I rest my case, your honor.
Completely agree with Eddie and Pittband. Duquesne has played absolutely no one! If they played Pitt’s schedule so far, they likely have 5 losses.
Dont get me wrong I’m happy for the dukes but lets be honest pitt would be 7-0 too with that schedule
