A quick note, garnered from the excellent work of our hoops colleague Seth Davis:
Just spoke w/ Jim Boeheim. Kris Joseph definitely will NOT play vs Pitt on Mon night bc of concussion but should be OK for Villanova on Sat.
Advantage, Pitt? It will be interesting to see which way Jim Boeheim goes with the starting lineup. Will it be a three-guard look, with freshman Dion Waiters getting the start, or will we see a favorite emerge from the triumvirate of C.J. Fair, Baye Moussa Keita and James Southerland? How this team deals with injury will tell us a lot about what they can do in March.
