Video: Jamie Dixon Previews Marquette

Pitt has won seven of eight games since suffering a 74-67 overtime loss to Marquette on January 12. Jamie Dixon talks about what has led to his team's improvement since then, and what to expect this time around.

At the point of Pitt's loss to Marquette last month, the Panthers were outrebounded in three of those first four Big East games.

In the eight games since that first meeting, Pitt has outrebounded opponents in six of eight games, including an average rebounding margin of +9.

In addition to an improvement in rebounding, Pitt has gone to the zone more than we've seen in previous Dixon-coached teams. Dixon talks about when to expect the zone, and how he feels comfortable switching between that and his man-to-man defense--something that could help the Panthers in Saturday's rematch.
