The Big East Tournament Report: Championship Game

Sorry Roy, you just are not that good.

Well the champion has been crowned. The Big East Tournament concludes for another year. This year, the ending was a bit different than the year before though. Pittsburgh showed to be the better team and the game proved to be an entertaining one.

#7 Pittsburgh v. #1 Georgetown
The teams went back and forth in the first half, trading blows. The score was only 31 to 28 at the half in favor of Pitt. But the second half was all the Panthers as they led and did not look back. Roy Hibbert had a nice game with 17 points, but it was not enough as Pittsburgh hosted a block party on him. Ronald Ramon had 17 points, Sam Young added 16, and Gilbert Brown added 12 off the bench. The Pittsburgh offense was just too much for Georgetown to handle as Pittsburgh went on to win the Big East Championship and the automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament. Pittsburgh becomes only the second team, other than Syracuse, to win four games in four days. Pittsburgh also defeated a Georgetown team that had never lost as the number one seed in the BET. A banner day all around for this scrappy Pittsburgh team. Final Score: Pittsburgh 74 – Georgetown 65.

Pittsburgh pulls off only the second storybook run to the championship. Unlike Syracuse however, they were a six seed in the tournament, they were most likely already going to get an at large bid, and their back was against no wall. Also, no one called one of their players overrated. It was a nice game for Pittsburgh though, and I extend congratulations to the gentlemen from Pennsylvania. The entire BET was full of sexy drama and upsets after day one, so I have to say it was one of the best I have seen, in the basketball sense. I would have liked to see Syracuse go a little deeper but that is the way it goes. Enjoy Selection Sunday or, if you do not like torture, avoid it with a stiff drink and some Family Guy. Giggity.
