Pitt's bubble bursting

07:39 AM ET 02.24 | Pitt is sinking and Jamie Dixon knows it. Pitt was 6-1 in ACC play before its free fall began when it was blown out in the second half Jan. 27 in a home loss to Duke. It then lost home games to Virginia and Syracuse at the buzzer, crushing defeats to say the least. But this latest loss was the worst loss. Florida State came in with a 15-11 record, 6-8 in the ACC. Pitt's resume for the NCAA tournament continues to get weaker and weaker. It's not just its five losses in the past seven games, which have left it with an 8-6 ACC record. It hasn't beaten a really good team and won't have a chance to do so before the ACC tournament. Now, it no longer can say it doesn't have a bad loss. Pitt won't make the NCAAs unless Dixon finds a way to cure its many problems. Quickly. "We're not playing well," Dixon said.
