08:19 AM ET 12.12 | Inconsistency nearly tanked Pitt against Oklahoma State, but the Panthers pulled out a 74-68 win. Chalk it up to youth and inexperience at several positions. The Panthers are starting two freshmen and bringing two more off the bench. ... There have been times when the Panthers have looked like an elite team in the past few weeks, and there have been other instances when they can't seem to get out of their own way. Sophomore forward Lamar Patterson, a first-year starter, believes the Panthers are close to becoming a team that can control games from start to finish. "I feel it," Patterson said. "You can see it on the court. We have little [spurts] where you can see our potential."

At least that's better than having a jr/sr team that is inconsistent.

True. But until that beast out of Baylor stops playing, they don't have a chance.

You just need a converted defensive tackle to play center on the women's team like aggie had last year.

Perhaps he should have phrased it "only honorable collegiate sports act". By now we all know the true meaning of 'Success with honor", and it ain't it in happy valley.
