Following their 71-65 loss on Sunday at Georgia Tech, the Pitt Panthers find themselves under .500 in the ACC for the first time this 2020-21 season.
Jeff Capel’s team is now 5-6 in conference, 9-7 overall and have lost 5 of their last 6 games. While the Panthers have been competitive in each of these games aside the Notre Dame contest, a loss is a loss and once again, Pitt looks as though they won’t be participating in the NCAA Tournament.
In examining this untimely late season losing stream, it’s hard to pin-point one exact thing as being the biggest culprit leading to Pitt’s struggles. It would be fair to bring up things such as: decline in overall team defense, inconsistent point guard play, not enough shots for Justin Champagnie, the loss of John Hugley, lack of secondary scoring from players such as Nike Sibande.
