#4 UConn Huskies at #6 Pittsburgh Panthers

Monday December 27, 2010 8:30 PM EST

Line: Pittsburgh -7

UConn has been perfect this season. They own 2 wins over top 10 ranked teams. The Panthers have only 1 loss on the season, and it was vs Tennessee at a neutral site. They are 1-1 against ranked teams and both games were on neutral sites. This is the first Big East game for both teams.

Stats to consider:

UConn Huskies:

  • UConn is 10-0 with this being their first road game.
  • Points per game: 79.6 (26th)
  • Field Goal PCT: .454 (103rd)
  • Rebounds per game: 43.8 (3rd)
  • Assists per game: 14 (121st)

Pittsburgh Panthers:

  • Pitt is 12-1 with a 9-0 home record.
  • Points per game: 80.7 (20th)
  • Field Goal PCT: .482 (27th)
  • Rebounds per game: 44.5 (2nd)
  • Assists per game: 20.4 (1st)

What to watch for:

  • UConn Junior G Kemba Walker leads the team with 26.5 PPG and 4 APG. He is shooting .421% from 3.
  • UConn Sophomore C Alex Oriakhi leads the team with 9.9 RPG and is 2nd with 11.3 PPG.
  • Pitt Junior G Ashton Gibbs leads his team with 16.5 PPG and also has 3.4 APG and 2.5 RPG.
  • Pitt Senior C Gary McGhee leads his team with 6.8 RPG and also has 5.6 PPG.

Road records often determine basketball picks. The fact that UConn has yet to play a road game makes this a tough pick. I like what UConn has going with G Kemba Wlaker and C Alex Oriakhi, but I’m not sure that they have the depth that Pitt possesses. I still think that UConn could easily keep this game within 7 points. This is a prove it game for the Huskies.
