Went back and forth on this one before passing. Butler has a knack for playing great ball in March but they are a far cry from the teams they put on the court the past couple of years. The thing is that the Horizon was down this season and IMO way, way down and they couldn't even win their conference. Hinkle is a tough place to play and the Bulldogs are guaranteed to be geeked up at the prospect of bringing in a big east team. But when it gets down to it you are right, the Panthers have the better talent. To me it boils down to how bad Pitt wants it, if the kids are excited to hit the road and play their best, Pitt is a winner. If not, Brad Stevens will insure that they are in for a rude awaking.
No play for me here, maybe a 2H if the numbers look good.
Best of luck
