Re: 32 seconds til the half, 3 time outs, and you're kicking away to open the 3rd quarter. What do you do?
Preface: I'm in no way saying that I agree with this......
....but, my take is that they felt they were going to be able to control Batch and Pittsburgh's O in the 2nd half and were satisfied with a 7-point lead.
Therefore, they weren't willing to take a chance and risk putting Pitt in position to be able to score again before the half.
I don't think they felt that Batch could beat them and were satisfied with playing it conservatively.
........and, they were wrong.
