Pitt Men's Basketball Head Coach Jeff Capel

The PM Team w/Poni & Mueller
Thursday, May 10th
We open things up with Jeff talking about Pitt flipping the court to showcase the Oakland Zoo and he tells us that it was something so important to him that when he interviewed he brought up the idea.  Talking about the players that will be on that court, Capel landed a big time recruit in Tre McGowan and how he landed such a talented recruit just months into his time here.  Capel adds that McGowan fits the mold of tough players who are willing to buy in and have the upside to get better during their time here.  We also talk about Xavier Johnson, another recruit he has committed already and how he will split time playing point with McGowan.  Talking about the rest of the roster and how he'll want to put it together, Capel says he won't shy away from grad transfers and is always looking for guys that can help them right away but won't just take a kid to fill out the roster.  We wrap things up with Capel asking him one of our favorite hypothetical questions about how far a middle of the road college team could go if they had Lebron James on the roster right now.
