PITTSBURGH (93-7 THE FAN) — Once upon a time, the senior Class of 2015 looked like a force to be reckoned with for Jamie Dixon. After the announcement by redshirt sophomore center Malcolm Gilbert that he plans to transfer, that trio ceases to exist.
PITTSBURGH (93-7 THE FAN) — Coming off a turbulent 2011-12 campaign, and having inserted two unproven players into the starting lineup, it is fair to say Jamie Dixon’s squad was a team in transition entering the 2012-13 season. Through the first ten games, however, being in transition has been a good thing.
PITTSBURGH (93-7 THE FAN) — Bleat all you want about the infirmity of their non-conference schedule, but the Panthers continue to gather national attention, and it’s because they taught one of the locals a lesson on Saturday.
PITTSBURGH (93-7 THE FAN) — It’s hard to imagine where these Panthers would be without senior guard Tray Woodall, and after his performance in The City Game, fans would much rather not find out.
PITTSBURGH (93-7 THE FAN) — He may not have equaled his season-high point total from the consolation round of the NIT Tip-Off tournament, but I believe I can say, without much fear of contradiction, that freshman center Steven Adams played his best game in a Pitt uniform against Duquesne.
PITTSBURGH (93-7 THE FAN) — If the 1,500th win in Pitt history was a remotely accurate forecast for the Panthers–and their latest non-conference victims–we know that both teams, going forward, must rely on perimeter shooting…a […]
Early in the season junior linebacker Shane Gordon lamented the lack of “assignment football” being play by Pitt’s defense. Now the Panthers know what their jobs are, and know they must finish the job against South Florida Saturday night to redefine their 2012 campaign.
PITTSBURGH (93-7 THE FAN) — Once again, the Panthers have to prove they can handle a potential NBA guard, and once again, they have to prove they can handle a zone defense. Which will be the more daunting task on Saturday night?
PITTSBURGH (93-7 THE FAN) — The Panthers aren’t guaranteed a bowl game as they gear up for their Big East football farewell, but Saturday’s trip to South Florida might as well be one.
PITTSBURGH (93-7 THE FAN) — With the regular season coming to and end on Saturday at South Florida it’s a time for all of the players to reflect upon the season, and, for the freshmen, to reflect upon the start of their collegiate careers.
PITTSBURGH (93-7 THE FAN) — Even as his fellow forwards muddled along against another zone defense, junior Lamar Patterson, once again, packed a much-needed offensive punch after a rather punch-less start to his season.
PITTSBURGH (93-7 THE FAN) — After their trip to the Big Apple, zone defense should not be foreign to this Panther offense. However, it took some big minutes from their big men in the second half to win big Tuesday night.
PITTSBURGH (93-7 THE FAN) — The Panthers showed a lot of character in last Saturday’s win over Oakland at the Petersen Center, but the only thing this opponent and their next one have in common is they play in the same state.
PITTSBURGH (93-7 THE FAN) — Sixth-year offensive lineman Chris Jacobson is no stranger to the pageantry of Senior Day, nor its importance to how another adverse season for the Panthers will end.
