First Eight Out: Xavier, BYU, UCLA, Temple, Illinois, Wyoming, Saint Mary’s, Massachusetts

It was an interesting week in the ACC. Coming off a loss to North Carolina State on Valentine’s Day, Louisville lost again at Syracuse. And then they looked pretty bad against Miami before slipping past Miami 55-53 on Saturday afternoon. Meanwhile, Pittsburgh got a huge win over the Orange. In the last month the Panthers have beaten Notre Dame, North Carolina and Syracuse twice. There are not many other big wins on the resume, but that could be enough as long as Pitt keeps beating teams they should beat.
