“This is one of the teams I’ve highlighted as a dangerous team,” Kellogg says. “Wherever they’re seeded, they’ll be problematic and difficult. They play together as well as you’ll find any team in college basketball. They share the ball, and they defend together. And they have a collective spirit that can serve them well going into the tournament. I like Pitt’s chances.”READ MORE: Ohio Gov.

Kellogg reacts to the latest swirl of rumors on whether Pitt head coach Jamie Dixon could be in the mix for the job at USC.
