Analyst: Pitt Should Make Big Run In Tournament
PITTSBURGH (93-7 The FAN) – Sporting News senior college basketball writer Mike Decourcy joined the FAN Morning Show to preview the NCAA Tournament.
Decourcy says what basketball fans should be focusing on in this year’s tournament is the horrible job the NCAA selection committee has done with the seedings in the brackets.
In Decourcy’s opinion, there is no way Butler and Pitt should be meeting in a third round game, and no reason that Ohio State, the No. 1 overall seed, should see a team like George Mason in the second game.
He thinks Pitt will have trouble with Butler in the third round, but will be successful against them.
Decourcy sees Pitt making a big run in the tournament because there is not that “killer player” in this tournament that has beat Pitt in the past.
