Fall Report: PittsburghFall Report
After sweeping a doubleheader from North Carolina this past April, the Pitt Panthers were standing tall at 20-10 overall and 14-9 in the ACC.
At that point, Pitt had swept three games from Florida State. The Panthers had taken series from Georgia Tech and Virginia. And Pitt had also swept three games from Miami.
But 40-something days after taking that double dip from UNC, Panthers players sat in stunned silence as Pitt coach Mike Bell – who had received a tip before the televised selection show – told them they had fallen one win short of the NCAA tournament.
