Down to the wire

March, 28, 2009
BOSTON -- Sam Young just hit a big-time shot, flipping over after connecting on the 3-pointer to give Pitt a 63-61 lead with five minutes left.

But Dante Cunningham answered right back to tie the game before DeJuan Blair put an offensive rebound back off a Jermaine Dixon missed 3-pointer for a layup and a two-point Pitt lead.

This game should go down to the final possession. That's good after the yawners Friday night, save Kansas-Michigan State. Missouri-Connecticut was a good watch, but this is proving to be even better. It should. These two teams are familiar enough with each other that they can go back and forth without hesitation.
