    Much like our game...Lousville crushing them but Pitt making a bit of a run. Pitt cut a 21 point H deficit down to 6 with :35 seconds left.

    Watched the 2nd half. Artis finished with 43..85-80 final. Pitt finished 16-29 from the foul line and could've won if not for being so abysmal at the charity stripe.

    Yep. UL was 15-20 from the stripe when Pitt was 13-26 just under the 4 minute t.o. UL finished 23-34 and did miss a bunch down the stretch. Who knows though how it plays out if Pitt was say 20 or 21 of 26 instead at that point as it would've placed a lot more game pressure on the Cards being a one possession game with 3-4 minutes left vs. 8-10. In which case, Pitino may have even stripped down even further and completely unbuttoning his shirt giving his best Richie Sambora impression. ;):)

    This has been a common theme for Pitt. They give a lot of points away at the foul line and aren't dominant enough of a team to overcome it.
