The key to downing the Panthers revolves around getting DeJuan Blair in foul trouble.
Among the honorees this week are Big East favorite Pitt and Wake Forest star Jeff Teague, whose performance helped bring down the nation's longest home win streak.
Fourteen games into the season, No. 3 Pittsburgh took its first major test and passed it with plenty to spare -- thanks to the inside muscle of DeJuan Blair.
DeJuan Blair doesn't get the plaudits that other big men in the Big East get, but he continues to show his worth to Pitt.
