Pitt beats Georgetown to win Big East title
Saturday, March 15, 2008
By Jim O'Connell, Associated Press

NEW YORK -- Ronald Ramon scored 17 points and Pitt won its second Big East tournament championship in its eighth title game appearance with a 74-65 victory over top-seeded and ninth-ranked Georgetown tonight.

The seventh-seeded Panthers (26-9) shed their runner-up tag with a performance just like those in all the other championship games: a blue-collar effort without a star player.

Roy Hibbert had 17 points for the Hoyas (27-5), who were trying to sweep the regular-season and tournament titles for a second straight season.

Is this the year Pitt breaks thru and gets to the final 4??? They sure are getting hot at the right time. This is the best Pitt team I can remember. I think they can play with anyone.

I'm not that crazy about Pitt, but I hate Georgetown. It was great watching Blair use Hibbert as his bitch all night.

Congrats Pitt and good luck.

i mean during the game it looked liked pitt wanted to give the game away with all of those damn free throws they were missing... but like usual in this tourny they got hot at the right time.. and hibbert was shutdown early b/c of foul trouble

Hibbert is one of the dumbest college basketball players I've ever seen. With his size, he should dominate, but he's always doing something stupid or playing half speed. What a waste.

winning 4 games in a row, beating 3 ranked teams.

Awesome. Should get a really good seed now in the Tourney and maybe we can finally break past the sweet 16.

LETS GO PITT

Pitt is playing absolutely some of the most ridiculous basketball I have seen. They're going to be the no. 4 seed against no. 13 Oral Roberts.

they helped themselves out with the tourny moving up to get a better seed.. but the game after oral roberts will be hard..

Rumor is that Bobby Knight has picked PITT to beat North Carolina in the final game to win it all...

not sure if that's a curse or what but he fell in love with them over the weekend covering b-ball for ESPN over the weekend. He loves they way they play.

LETS GO PITT!!!

its the first time that ive seen some1 at espn pick one of my teams to win it all. but i still try to distance myself from espn the only reason i watched it today to see if they would show the highlights of the pens game and wat do u kno... nothing!!

i think if PITT can keep playing the way they are playing i dont see why we couldnt win it all.

Hey all,

I was at a "Selection Sunday" party for U of Memphis fans yesterday and everybody let out a collective groan when they saw Pitt was in our bracket...they knew they could be one of those #4 seeds that could spell trouble. Best of luck....it's gonna get reeaal interesting!

GO TIGERS GO!!

If Fields and Cook don't get hurt, Pitt is in the mix for a #2 seed. Pitt could make a deep run if Young, Fields, and Blair keep playing well.
