Notebook: Depth was big for Pitt in first game

| Monday, Feb. 27, 2006

No. 9 Pitt and No. 14 West Virginia will be meeting for only the second time as ranked teams in the Associated Press media poll. The first time occurred during a 57-53 Pitt victory Feb. 9 at Petersen Events Center.

  • The teams will be meeting for the 170th time, with West Virginia leading the series, 91-78.

  • The depth on Pitt's roster again was evident during an 81-68 victory over Providence on Saturday. Junior guard Antonio Graves came off the bench to score 18 points on 6-of-10 shooting, including 2 for 3 from 3-point range, in 24 minutes.

    "He's a great player and our most legitimate shooting guard," said Pitt senior Carl Krauser, the Panthers' leading scorer (15.7 ppg.). "He tends to hit the open shots he gets, and he brings great experience off the bench. The team is going to be in great hands next year when he becomes a senior leader." Additional Information:

    While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

    We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

    We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

    We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

    We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

    We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions.

Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
