Pitt needed to respond after their worst performance of the season against Notre Dame. Xavier Johnson needed to play better following a couple poor performances in the midst of the Panthers three-game losing streak. Both of those things happened as Pitt picked up a big win over Virginia Tech 83-72.
Host Mike Asti is joined by Pittsburgh Sports Now’s George Michalowski on this edition of Pittsburgh Postgame on Pittsburgh Sports Live to recap the win and preview the schedule ahead. Can Pitt expect another performance like this one from Xavier Johnson? Did winning without a dominating effort from Justin Champagnie show Pitt has the depth t make a run and get themselves into the March Madness field?
