Fields Of Dreams? Try a Nightmare for Opponents

When the Pitt Panthers are the topic, 3 things come to mind. Defense, rebounding, and toughness. Maybe we should add offensive execution. Point guard Levance Fields leads the Big East in assists. Mick Cronin calls Fields the key to Pitt's team. "When he's at his best, he is as good of a point guard, a pure passer, team leader of any guy in our conference. He may not be the NBA prospect as a Jonny Flynn is for instance, but as far as college point guard, he's as good as it gets." Fields has 178 assists against 46 turnovers. Almost a 4 to 1 ratio, which Mick calls "Off the charts". A broken foot cost Fields 12 games last season, but he's back, he's healthy, and he's a player to watch when the 'Cats meet the Panthers Saturday at 4 p.m.
