In order to beat Syracuse, Pitt will have to execute against the 2-3 zone. Defensively, going up against Michael Carter-Williams and Brandon Triche is one of the tougher matchups Pitt will have all season.

Jamie Dixon talks about how to attack the 2-3 zone, and how he doesn't believe it's all about having success from three-point range.

He did say, as a whole, he needs to see more production from the four position--specifically Talib Zanna and J.J. Moore. Look for Pitt to dribble-penetrate against the zone--a golden opportunity for Zanna and/or Moore to break out with a big game.
