Pitt 74 – 66 Syracuse: And then there were three. How things might have been different had leading scorer Kris Joseph been there for the Orangemen…but he wasn’t and Pitt handed Syracuse their first loss of the season and more importantly the Panthers, who are off to a 6-0 start in conference play for the first time ever, are in first place all by their lonesome in the Big East standings. We’ll see just how long that last though.
UConn 61 – 59 Villanova: He did it again! Kemba Walker overcame a tuff shooting night to lead the Huskies to the win down the stretch, hitting a big three and the game winner just like he did at Texas last week. Walker right now reminds me of Gilbert Arenas back when people used to call him Agent Zero, you know back when he was actually good.
Even with the loss ‘Nova is still in the Big East title hunt and have a chance to even the score with games coming up against Syracuse (Saturday) and Pitt (Next Monday).
