Diary of an afternoon at the Mecca

I wont be blogging the night games as I will be enjoying them with friends. SU tips 20 minutes after the UConn game.

Final- Nova 67 Pitt 58 Randy Foye was incredible with 23 points and Allan Ray and Curtis Sumpter were their usual selves. Pitt didnt get enough from Troutman and Krauser's baskets were in garbage time. If there's one thing to take form this game , its Nova's defensive intensity. Thats the key to a deep Nova run in the tourney.

40 sec- Nova 65 Pitt 52 Pitt waits 20 seconds to foul and this one is in the bank for Nova. Pitt will be waiting to see if they could grab a 5 seed in the tourney, while I still believe Nova can get a 2 if they win this tourney.

1:19- Nova 61 Pitt 52- Nova keeps taking the ball to the basket instead of pulling it out and running clock. Graves hits a 3 to get it to 9. Pitt needs to hope Nova misses some FTs, but they're the best FT shooting team in the BE.

2:16- Nova 59 Pitt 49- Pitt gets 6 straight points to cut it to ten. I think its a little too little too late. One constant in these two games this afternoon is that the team that complained the most to the Refs are the ones on the wrong side of the score.

3:17 Nova 59 Pitt 43- Unbelievable sequence for Pitt. Benjamin commits a foul and Krauser proceeds to toss the ball into the rafters in protest. No technical called. After two FTs Pitt comes down and Troutman committs a moving screen. Sumpter comes down and hits another jumper. This one's over.

4:59- Taft gets a technical for touching the ball across the end line. That could be all she wrote for Pitt. Nova up 12 with the ball.

4:59- Nova 54 Pitt 43- Sumpter has taken over scoring 7 straight points at one point and then feeding Fraser inside and he got fouled. Ramon and Troutman are playing with 4 fouls. Pitt needs to make a huge move right now. The Nova defense has totally flustered Pitt and their getting to every loose ball. Im not sure Pitt can stop Nova from scoring to pull this out.7:20 Remaining- Nova 49 Pitt 39- Pitt is making their run right now with two huge 3s from Krauser and Graves, but Sumpter answers with two FTs and a 3 of his own. Everytime Pitt has made a run to get it under single figures Nova has answered. Pitt needs to step it up on the defensive end to pull this out.

11:27- Krauser trying to show off, misses a lay-up. The two most irritated times I’ve heard Bilas all afternoon is after the Krauser play and the Marshall staredown in the BC game. Once Carl Krauser realizes the point is to try to win the game and not show off for his friends and family maybe then people around the country will pay attention to him. Ronald Ramon had two open 3s and missed both. Pitt needs someone to hit an open jumpshot to get them back in it.

12:50 remaining- Nova 42 Pitt 27- Randy Foye has been impressive this afternoon. He can take any Pitt player off the dribble. Pit continues to build a new MSG with all the bricks. Keith Benjamin trying to provide a spark.

15:00 remaining Nova 40 Pitt 23- Nova has blown the lead out to 17. Pitt cant do anything right. The Nova defense has been stellar. Only 23 points for Pitt in 25 minutes.

17:00 remaining Nova 37 Pitt 23- Krauser should put away the X..Its getting annoying and the refs are about to “T” him up. Nova continues to break down Pitt off the dribble and dish for easy shots. Pitt has to pick it up or this will be a blow out

Half Time- Nova 31 Pitt 19- Pitt doesn’t score from the field the last 6 minutes. Nova is getting a huge game from Foye as Sumpter hasn’t been much of a factor. Nova’s Forwards have matched Pitt’s intensity. Pitt needs a big half from Troutman and Krauser to get back in this game. Pitt made more FTs than FGs that half. Mark McCarroll probably wishes he could have this season over again. It’s been a rough one for him. Lets see if Pitt can get some buckets in this half. Nova’s defense has been scrappy.

1:17 remaining Nova 31 Pitt 18- Never mind. Nova gets a drive from Lowry and 3 from Allan Ray and this game goes from a 3 point deficit for Pitt to a 11 point hole. Krauser has to step up here or Pitt’s going to be in a big hole.

2:40 remaing- Nova 26 Pitt 17- Randy Foye ahs shown up- 13 points. Pitt games are the hardest to officiate. You cant call everything and you can let everything go. This game is U-G-L-Y- and Pitt has no alibi. Pitt has to be careful or they’ll be down double digits at half

3:55 remaining- Nova21 Pitt16 - Pitt has missed its last 5 shots. Very very Sloppy game. Bad passes, stupid shots. The officials arent helping the flow calling touchy fouls. Sheridan and Fraser are matching Pitt's frontline. Pitt is hanging in. If Krauser or Troutman gets hot they could catch up and grab a lead and put some pressure on Nova.

6:30 remaining- Nova 19 Pitt 16- Officials calling the game really tight as both teams are in the penalty already. Pitt hanging in without getting anything from Troutman yet. Jay Wright is the best dressed man in the Garden today.

8:00 remaining- Nova 19 Pitt 14- Taft is keeping Pitt in this game. You can see the problems that Nova causes. They can spread you out offensively and on defense they are tenacious. I dont know how many more times I can hear that Zutons song "Cant get this pressure out of my head". We get it. There's pressure.

Pitt/Nova 10:00 remaining- I'm impressed with Nova's defense. Chris Taft has showed up today. Nova is hitting from 3 right now. Nova is matching Pitt's intensity, but Pitt is making a run. Nova 17 Pitt12

End of WVU/BC- WVU 78- BC72.. Well this diary thing doesnt seem to be working. (Thanks Blogger). But WVU held off a furious BC rally to upset the Eagles at the Garden. Im sure its a humbling loss for Dudley and Smith who wanted to prove they arent flukes. Many a tournament bracket will have BC getting bounced in the 1st or second round. I penned my feelings on BC on Yoni Cohen's site. WVU punched their ticket to the dance with a huge win. When BC got the game down to 5, JD Collins and Kevin Pittsnogle stepped up. Good bye BC, you wont be missed.

Half Time- WVU44 BC22 Thats not a misprint. WVU is on fire and BC looks horrible right now. Dudley is on the bench with 3 fouls. Bad move by Skinner leaving him in with 2 fouls. Smith can get whatever he wants in the inside but the BC guards keep turning it over. Tyrone Salley isnt playing for WVU but everyone has stepped up for the Mountaineers and Pittsnogle has been held in check. Frank Young (who) has 13 points (career high) and is making NBA 3's. Lets see if WVU can hold on for a shocking upset. WVU shoots 68 percent from the floor and 8-11 from 3. BC shoots 41 perecent form the floor and Smith is a prefect 4/4 in the 1st half. sidenote- I love the Bilas/ Raftery/ McDonough team announcing the game.

-I know I'm starting late but I'll be updating my blog during the second half of BC/WVU and entire Pitt/ Nova..hope you enjoy
