The Pitt men’s basketball team has been on the bubble of the NCAA Tournament for a few weeks now but Sunday night’s 69-66 loss at the hands of Wake Forest may have done them in.
Despite one of the worst starts to an overtime that RMU head Coach Andy Toole had ever seen, the Colonials (16-14, 12-6 NEC) fought until the end in to win a 71-70 nail-biter over Saint Francis University.

New Head Coach Pat Narduzzi and the Pitt football program have announced five players who will be departing from the program.
