The Panthers are headed to the Sweet 16 for the 5th time in 8 years after a win today.

Oklahoma state played supurbly, nailing 10 3 pointers in the first half to keep it close. The game was tied at the half at 49. In the second half they only made 2 threes as they came back to earth.

Sam Young was a monster, posting 32 points and 8 boards. He had 23 points in the first half. Pitt outboarded Ok. St. 41-21, a dominating performance.

The Big East Conference has a record 5 teams in the Regional semi-finals (Sweet 16) this year.
It's time for Pitt to get past this place that they have gotten stuck at every time this millenium. Ironically, they will try to do so against Xavier, coached by former Panther star point guard Sean Miller. They will play on Thursday, March 26 at 7:27 pm.
