    Man! This team doesn't believe in winning the easy way! A single made free throw would have iced it by putting the Pack up four with five seconds left to play, but after making several in a row, CJ Bryce missed and Pitt went down the center and threw up a desperation shot from the top of the key that bricked off the backboard as time expired.

    NC State needed to get back on the winning side and Pitt was a road game that was considered winnable, whatever that really means. What I see it meaning is that the teams left on the schedule are better at home than Pitt has been. Though, BC might be in about the same situation.

    However, a win is a win and an ACC road win is a very nice thing indeed!

    Pack wins it 79-76.

    Biggest thing to me this game is Markell's 8 assist. That is a very positive sign that Markell is getting back to being Markell not to mention the clutch 3 late in the 2nd. I love this team and their effort but the one guy who Keatts has limited because his lack of effort in practice (why he only played 23 minutes a game until ACC play) has got to go back to being the guy that carried the team during clutch time the past 2 seasons. If that happens we will win 6 out of 7 (maybe 7, we have had Dukes number the last 2 seasons including last time in Cameron and I am a glass half full kind of guy) and have great "mo" going into post season.
