Virginia knocks off Pitt in ACC tourney

Georgia Tech vs. Pitt- 3/7/17 College Basketball Pick Odds and Prediction

Pitt's 75-63 loss in the second round of the ACC tournament to Virginia on Wednesday marks the end of the career of seniors Jamel Artis, Sheldon Jeter (Beaver Falls), Chris Jones and Michael Young.

Pittsburgh put four players in double figures led by Michael Young who scored 17 points.

Virginia was 11-of-21 (52.4 percent) from the field in the second half and shot 49.0 percent (24-of-49) for the game.

Virginia: The Cavaliers have won four straight since losing four straight in the middle of February.

Bennett made it clear after the first win over Pittsburgh: Guy and Jerome hadn't just been the backup option in the final two games of the season, they earned their minutes.

Virginia matched its program-high by hitting 11 3-pointers on Wednesday, equaling the number they hit against North Carolina in 1997.

"I challenged the guys", said U.Va. coach Tony Bennett, whose team has beaten Notre Dame in 10 consecutive meetings (five with Bennett as coach), including U.Va.'s 71-54 win January 24 at Notre Dame. "They've done that at different times during the year". Ty Jerome had 11 points and seven rebounds. The Panthers shot 35 percent from the floor, went 4 for 12 from 3-point range, and committed seven of its turnovers in the first half. Artis led the team in rebounds, grabbing nine, while he and redshirt sophomore guard Cameron Johnson tied for most assists on the team, providing four each.

NOTES: Virginia ranks first nationally in scoring defense at 54.9 ppg.

Young gave Pitt the lead with a 3 with 4:00 left in the second half. Pitt, behind 7-for-11 shooting to start the half, climbed to within one at 44-43.

The Panthers began to claw their way back in the second half. Regardless, the foul was his fourth and he went to the bench. Florida State is averaging 83 points per game and they are shooting 48.5 percent from the floor and 36.1 percent from beyond the 3-point arc while defensively they are allowing 71.2 points and their opponents are shooting 41.1 percent. "He certainly didn't look like he had a chance at it". They got great guards. "I tell the guys it's about the heart at this level, every possession matters, and that one mattered".

Pittsburgh would cut Virginia's lead to three as the Cavaliers hit a scoring drought, but senior guard London Perrantes drained a jump shot with four minutes remaining to help Virginia regain momentum.

"Kyle is through the roof", teammate London Perrantes said.

"ACC titles are always fun, they're always nice to have so I'm just proud of the way we performed I'm proud of the way the coaches prepared our guys and we're going to enjoy this for a day or two and then we're going to move on", explained interim coach Tony Robie. Don't put any extra weight on your shoulders. "We just didn't guard them as well as they guarded us, and as a result, we weren't able to win". "I'm not really afraid of the moment, but whatever the team needs from me, I'm going to do", Guy said.

Guy kept it simple: "I basically just do what he tells me".
