    Could Pitt get a No. 2 seed in the Big East tourney?
    Pitt basketball Q&A with Ray Fittipaldo

    By Ray Fittipaldo, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

    Q: Any chance that Pitt could bypass West Virginia and Villanova and get the 2 seed in the Big East tournament if Pitt wins out and West Virginia beats Villanova on Saturday, and all had the same conference record. If Pitts and West Virginia have the same conference record and 1-1 against each other this season, which team holds the tiebreaker?

    FITTIPALDO: In the event of a three-way tie among Pitt, West Virginia and Villanova, the Panthers own the tiebreaker and would be the No. 2 seed in the conference tournament. When there is a three-way tie among teams in the standings a mini-conference is formed. The teams are then slotted by best winning percdentage in games against each other. Pitt is 2-1 against West Virginia and Villanova, so Pitt is slotted first. In order for West Virginia to finish with the same conference record as Villanova the Mountaineers would have to beat the Wildcats Saturday. That would give West Virginia a 2-2 record against Pitt and Villanova and the No. 3 seed. Villanova would be the No. 4 seed because the Wildcats would be 1-2 against Pitt and West Virginia.

    I'm leery about them getting a #2 seed. It seems every time they climb the mountain they take a dump. I'd rather see them play as the underdog. I think that reinforces the belief in the system and work ethic.

    Yea.... They didn't exactly have a stellar performance against Providence, and Rutgers was a joke... Gonna be interesting.
