Game Preview

Winless in its first pair of Atlantic Coast Conference matchups, Pitt will take another try at getting in the win column in league play against No. 8 North Carolina at home Tuesday night.

The Panthers (9-4, 0-2 ACC) fumbled a halftime lead against rival Syracuse in an 81-73 loss on Saturday. Pitt coach Jeff Capel noticed a difference in intensity between the two sides.

“I thought they played with such energy (and) a sense of urgency,” Capel told reporters postgame. “We didn’t match it. We were weak. They were knocking the ball away from us. They were out-hustling us. We would get rebounds and they knocked the ball away from us.”
