March Madness 2010: 14 Oakland - 3 Pittsburgh Final

March Madness 2010
14 Oakland vs 3 Pittsburgh
West Regional
Final Score 89 Pittsburgh 66 Oakland

We picked Oakland as our 14 seed upset and it looked good early but Pittsburgh pulled away. We thought the big guy Keith Benson would tip this in Oakland's favor and he had 28 points but it wasn't nearly enough as Oakland couldn't play solid enough defense. Pittsburgh burned them for 89 points which we didn't see coming, 6 players scored in double digits with Brown and Dixon leading the way at 17. The thing that really hurt Oakland is they had 17 turnovers and it is hard to pull the upset when you do that. Pittsburgh plays Xavier in the second round, and we had Xavier advancing.
