Probably because a bunch of the talking heads predicted the Zags would have trouble beating Pitt, so it stood to reason Pitt was really poorly seeded and would walk all over Wichita St.

I believe Vandy lost back to back years as a 4 or a 4 and a 5.

8th rated offensive efficiency, 16 in defense plus a 29th ranked strength of schedule and rated 8th by KenPom? This was a true upset..
Yeah, going by KenPom Pitt was very close to a 3:1 favorite in this game.

Pitt wasn't really an 8, they were vastly underseeded

Wichita State over the Zags looking like a good pick now

this is what they do almost every year


I have a friend in one bracket that usually does very well and was riding Pitt through the regional finals beating tOSU and losing to Louisville in the final 4. I messaged him 10 mins before we had our final edit asking if he may be making a HUGE mistake and he replied with a PJ like "LOCK, FACT!" lolz

I feel like they are always shitting the bed in these tourneys for the most part
