Kentucky Wesleyan Impressive in Loss to #10 Pittsburgh [VIDEO]

Last night, while Kentuckians were wondering if UK was going to win a basketball game by 100 points, something far more interesting and impressive was happening in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The Kentucky Wesleyan Panthers were playing an exhibition game against the Pitt Panthers, ranked tenth in the current Associated Press College Basketball Poll. As a college basketball, I’m flippin’ out. I mean, things are lookin’ good across the street for Owensboro’s Panthers if they can maintain a lead for most of the first half–they led by seven at one point–against one of the stingiest defensive basketball programs in the country. Wesleyan head coach Todd Lee knows Pitt head coach Jamie Dixon, so perhaps that familiarity was a key ingredient. Yes, Pittsburgh took the lead late in the first half and led by as many as 19 in the second, but the final margin was nine. If Kentucky Wesleyan can keep up that level of play in the coming season, the 15th-ranked Panthers will have a terrific season in Division II. I doubt Owensboroans would mind seeing a ninth national championship trophy come to town.
