Pitt: Pre-Game Tempo-Free

Seton Hall, off a much needed win at Rutgers, entertains Pitt at the Rock. A few pre-game observations of the efficiency order. Pitt is 4-8 and showing a negative five in efficiency margin (offense minus defense). On offense the Panthers average 101 efficiency while allowing 106 on defense. What you expect of a 4-8 conference team. Their overall pace is not surprising, a rather grind it out 65 possessions.

In a recent four game win streak, claiming Providence, Georgetown, West Virginia and Villanova as conquests, Pitt’s margin was a plus 14. Once again, what you can ask of a team on a four game sweep of quality opposition. Jamie Dixon’s group dropped their last meeting at South Florida. No disgrace as the Bulls will give you a battle, especially in the Sunshine State.

The Hall enters 5-7 playing at a quicker 67 (the high sixties opposed to the mid sixties do make a difference)possession tempo. Their margin is a minus three:

Offensive Efficiency 92

Defensive Efficiency 95

The defense, a strong mark but the offense is below par. Should be interesting to see if Pitt, a historically man to man team, shows a good amount of zone in this contest.
