Panther Hollow: A Freaky Friday In A Wednesday Night Win

PITTSBURGH (93-7 THE FAN) — One of the most common knocks against Jamie Dixon is he doesn’t think outside his own metaphorical box, insisting all the basketball world’s problems can be solved by simply boxing out. Imagine the surprise of his critics when, together, he and the Panthers did both.

Panther Hollow: Less Is Moore Up Front

Panther Hollow: Tracking The Tra(e)ys

PITTSBURGH (93-7 THE FAN) — If Pitt wishes to be labeled as something other than an average Big East team come Selection Sunday, it must begin taking advantage of above-average Big East opportunities.
