Colorado, Pitt back in NCAAs despite injuries
Question of the Day
“The biggest difference to me is the name of the conference,” leading scorer Lamar Patterson said, noting both leagues are tough.
From a coaching standpoint, Dixon said there are a lot differences, ranging from recruiting to playing more games in on-campus arenas instead of NBA venues.
“You go in there saying it’s just basketball,” Dixon said. “But it’s a different deal.”
LATE SEASON STRUGGLES: Like Pitt, Colorado is trying to recover its edge. The Buffaloes have dropped four of seven since beating Arizona State at home on Feb. 19, with two of those losses coming to Arizona. Leading scorer Josh Scott, a 6-foot-10 sophomore center who’ll be matched up against Pitt’s 6-9 Talib Zanna, was held to four points and two rebounds in a 20-loss to Arizona in the Pac-12 tourney.
X-FACTOR: One of the players who has emerged as a solid player for Colorado since Dinwiddie left the lineup is guard Xavier Talton. He and forward Xavier Johnson average nearly 17 points per game.
ON THE MEND: Zanna sat out practice Wednesday because of a stomach virus, however Dixon expects him to be ready to play Thursday.
